    I would like to have the necessary files and procedure to "unroot" before I root my Bionic. Also, will battery life improve if after root I delete some apps that have services?

    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.

    2. Press the menu capacitive button then select settings > applications > development > check USB debugging > then click Ok.
    3. Download & extract the contents of the attached 32bitBionicRoot.zip to your desktop.
    4. Double click Motorola_End_User_Driver_Installation_5.2.0_32bit.msi to install the Motorola phone drivers.
    5. Once installed plug your Bionic into your computer.
    6. Select the option to Charge Only.
    7. Double click MotorolaOneClickRoot.exe to launch the root app.
    8. Follow the steps in the command window to root.

    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.

    Does doing a hard reset actually work to remove any OTA updates?

    Hard reset? You mean factory reset? Why do you want to remove ota updates?

    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!

    ERROR: adb could not be granted root access via local.prop method

    Try again from the start, but if the problem continues, check your version
    of Gingerbread -- hopefully you don't have a version where this exploit
    was fixed.

    Did you have to do a factory reset for it to work? All it does when I try this post 893 is say:

    "* daemon started successfully *"

    It stops there and never goes any further.

    ask and ye shall receive - if you're on 5.5.893 OS, there are a couple of ways to do this -

    this, http://forums.androidcentral.com/bio...t-working.html

    and/or, go over to rootzwiki and do a search for ROTA893 from user realbbb. Both of them are known to work.

    If you're on a Mac, go to the rootzwiki thread "Released..." and download the latest "bionicrestorer" from CRPeck - this works as well on 893 (I can personally vouch for this one).

    So all is not lost....
