    I am running a stock 5.9.905 ROOTED but nothing frozen. I downloaded the Blur_Version.5.9.905 to and installed it on the root of my external SD card.

    I have attempted to apply the update three times and get the following:

    -- Install / sdcard ...
    Finding update package...
    Opening update package...
    Verifying update package...
    Installing update...
    Verifying current system...
    assert failed: apply_patch_check("/system/bin/logwrapp
    er", "4a63fec78956def045b442910a754fa640db8f5a". "16ec
    E:Error in /tmp/sideload/
    (Status 7)
    Installation aborted.

    Any ideas?

    Do you have bootstrap or safestrap installed? If you are set on flashing the leak you could use a modified 5.9.905 and restore your system to complete stock without losing data, flash the leak and then root.

    Yes I have bootstrap loaded. Can I just uninstall that or do I need to flash back to 905?

    you can try and remove bootstrap following these instructions I copy from xda-developers - View Single Post - [CWM On Boot][Any Razr][for Bootstrap] CWM Recovery Auto Boot PKG.

    It's complicated to remove.
    Because, it must also be removed CWM recovery.

    Follow the below with very careful:

    Please work with RootExplorer.

    [Removing CWM on Boot]
    1) Delete file /system/bin/mot_boot_mode
    2) Rename file /system/bin/mot_boot_mode.bin to /system/bin/mot_boot_mode

    [Removing CWM Recovery]
    1) Delete file /system/bin/logwrapper
    2) Delete file /system/bin/hijack
    3) Rename file /system/bin/logwrapper.bin to /system/bin/logwrapper
    4) Delete directory /preinstall/recovery

    But, Own Your Risk!

    Good luck!

    If that does not work use the modified 5.9.905 fxz file from the link I posted earlier

    Thanks dbif. That manual removal scares me so I flashed back to modified 905, then proceeded with the flash to ICS. So far it's looking good. I got past the errors I had previously. I should know for sure in 15 minutes or so...

    I would probably wait for the OTA at this point, it should be in two, three weeks tops.

    Tapping my foot impatiently..... I want to run the ICS leak to get my 4G. But..... I know me. I know I like to rush into things w/o following directions to a "t" and I will mess something up royally. lol.

    Patience..... Sigh. Is it here yet?

    TBH, .232 is pretty slick, and fixes many (but not most) of the problems encountered by GB users. Good thing about being .229 is that you can go to .232 and still have full .905 FXZ capability to take the official OTA whenever it is released.

    So, I found you guys. Alright, I'm going to ask what I have read on here that has been asked before but I want to make without a shadow of a doubt that I don't screw up my Bionic. I love this phone and I don't want anything to go wrong with it. So, what is my process for moving to ICS? I am not rooted and I won't root this phone. So with that out of the way I have downloaded on my laptop RSDLite and the other file called Blur_Version.

    Also alot of people have asked will you loose data when changing over? I ask that as well. I don't want to loose how my screens are set up right now so will it just load ICS and everything I have set up will stay the same, is it that smart? I realize some of these questions are repeated and some are a bit stupid but I'm asking honestly here as I really truly don't want to screw this phone up. Mostly because I really don't want to have to set it all back up again with a replacement.

    Thanks again everyone and hopefully I'll be on ICS soon because I'm not patient enough to wait for the OTA.

    Did I mention that I'm NOT very PATIENT!!?? (taps foot) LOL

    ok patient man (woman). I would use 6.7.232 leak.

    To apply any of the ICS leaks
    1.) You must start with stock, unmodified 5.9.905 system. (Rooted is ok).
    2.) Download the update onto your external sd-card.
    3.) Power down your phone.
    4.) Hold down both volume buttons, then press power button.
    5.) Select recovery by pressing volume down then volume up.
    6.) At the fancy logo press both volume buttons.
    7.) Select "apply update" and then select the file downloaded in step 1 (Use vol up/down to navigate and power to select).
    8.) Reboot.

    this was copied and pasted from previous post.....:)

    I appreciate the help. I'm not going to root this phone. I just want to be on ICS. Now will I loose how my phone is set up right now? And will I be able to go back to stock once the update hits? If it ever hits. Lol. Thanks again!

    The orientation of icons and widgets will be different with ICS. It is more customizable than GB however.

    You will be able to return to stock GB .905 from ICS build 6.7.232 using RSD lite and the 905 FXZ.

    You could also use SamuriHL's House of Bionic to move from .232 to the OTA build without app or data loss if/when that time comes.

    OK, so it took three attempts at selecting the file in order to get it to start the loading process. I kept getting the E:signature verification failed. I think my issue was the sd card wasn't seated quite all the way for some reason. I was lucky enough to leave the back off of my phone in case of a battery pull and what have you. So anyways, I got it all installed and now my phone is rebooting....let's hope I didn't just screw something up. I followed directions to a "T". Fully charged...check download and put file onto sd card.....check power down phone and follow steps to install update....check!

    Alright I'm on ICS and I must say having never seen it before other than a few screen shots here and there, it is like having a brand new phone! The quality of the display seems improved for me and I love being able to put multiple apps in the drawer at the bottom, that is one KICKASS idea and I love it! Only one question...where did the task killer go running off to? Is it replaced with smart actions now?

    Task killers suck
