I am rooted and had frozen some apps. The update downloaded but it failed. Now, I have to find out what apps were frozen because the developer of the app that froze them skipped town so I am not sure what apps were frozen. I may have to do a factory reset to get the update to work.
Droid Bionic .893 DID NOT ROOT. In step 3 of the process I got an error about permissions. Luckily I was able to do a factory reset, and the phone did not brick.
-Bionic Users beware! I tried "MotorolaOneClick", "PetesOneClick" and the "All In One Root" from the guys over at AF and after following the instructions to the 'T' was not able to root my phone.
I have the same problem after I applied the 5.5.893 update. It says:
"adb could be granted root accessa via local.prop method"
Then it says the exploit may have been closed.
I guess I will live without root until someone figures out how to get around this.
I see the instructions on rooting my Bionic and they seem very straight forward. There is also a statement which says "MotorolaOneClickRoot.exe can also be used to unroot the Bionic". Where do I get MotorolaOneClickRoot.exe and does it get me back to factory conditions or to the way my phone was just prior to rooting? Please give me more information. I new to Android (but not a novice to PC's or smart phones) and heve never rooted a phone so I am trying to know more about it before I proceed.
I was thinking of a factory reset to remove OTA updates, if it will remove them so I can proceed with root. I tried to root and was not able to root since the error I recieved "exploit closed", possible result from OTA updates..
Unless someone knows of another way to root a bionic!
