    i'm updating as I type...didn't get the error even though i'm rooted so my device was able to update...but I'll let you know what it is once it reboots :D

    would suck if it gets stuck in a boot loop

    Wow! Talk about weird! I bought two Motions at the same time from our local Metro store. I rooted both phones at the same time. My sons phone and my phone notified us of the upgrade about 20 minutes apart. His updated just fine but mine gave me a notice that said "it appears this phone is rooted and can not be updated"! Three days ago they both upgraded just fine.

    Looks like version F added Google + to my list of search engines which I don't need.

    And then Google Plus tracks you for targeted advertising I.ve heard.

    Also Version F changed my stock browser .

    So I disabled Google + and even though not rooted seems like Browser tool bar went back to normal.

    Yeah.

    If you go to developer options and limit background processes to 3 or 4 you get some

    battery life back ,-not sure on rooted phones if this works.

    Each O.S. seems to boot with more RAM and that RAM is doing something which eats

    battery.......

    Try a factory reset after flashing each firmware and let us know which one uses the least. :)
