    I've been looking all over the place on how to root my bionic, and I want do it, and make sure that its reversible to the point I could still have access to my warranty. Will the 43v3r root do this, I know it says it can unroot the /system file, but the kernel and radio file are still rooted.

    Can anyone give me advice as to what to do? Forever root? Something else? I'm on version.893, and really want to make sure whatever I do is reversible.

    The best way to root your phone is using tehsusenoh modified releashed and forever root file here. R3l3AS3DRoot_Windows_V2.1 - modded zergRush - Minus.com Option 2, root and forever root.
    This works with 5.5.893

    As far as being reversible you can always flash the 5.5.893 fxz file and this will put your bionic like it just came out of the box with 5.5.893. Your phone will not be rooted. the only thing that goes untouched is your external sd card.

    I'm getting back a bit late, but thanks. Got it rooted and now I get to get rid of that crappy bloat, and add some special features. Perhaps I should try to figure out ROMs. That's the really cool stuff, right?

    Sure hope "got rid of" meant "froze" and not "deleted".
