    I just received an email from MOTO, inviting me to take place in the .904 soak test. I stated I must remove my root prior to the test. Is this really required & what is the least painful/quickest way to unroot. Thanks in advance.

    I was just sent the email also. I don't think being rooted will cause you not to get the soak test but I just backed up everything, copied the backups to my laptop, defrosted bloat, and removed TiBU because it did also mentioning having a backup app would not allow you to flash the update.

    You can wait and see what happens when other users try and flash the soak test with root. I will post here when I am done flashing.

    If you delete Tibu when you get the update every- thing will be gone except what you have left on your phone correct.

    One question, is it the same thing that was posted on every Bionic Android forum on the internet a couple weeks ago or not?

    If you delete TIBU the app will be gone but you should have a file on your external sd that has your TIBU backups. Then when you update and root you can reinstall TIBU and locate your backup under preferences to restore them. I would only restore the apps and not the data because they are based on the .902 system files and not the update.

    Don't know until we actually get the soak. They just sent the email stating that it was coming and were you interested in testing it. It should be soon.
