Installed 901. Went through the whole process without a hitch, except ...

no Titanium Backup. It says I need a rooted device. SuperUser opens up okay. Was root not installed?

EDIT: Yeah, tried all my other Root apps and notta. No rootsky for me on the 901. Saw the Zerg rush moving the files in the cmd window, but I guess it did not take.

P3, do you have a MD5 for the file? downloads have been ending up interrupted and the one that did complete, I want to make sure it is all there before I do anything.

Thanks as always.

Howdy P3,
So after all is finished, the Bionic can be at 5.5.893 rooted, and/or you go farther and can be at 5.9.901 rooted. Rooted forever or just rooted?

Was it a typo about which builds being used? 5.5.893 or 5.5.896 (really doesn't matter since I'm on my way to 901)

Is the 5.9.901 an "official" Moto update?

I'm on the stock (pre-rooted with forever root) 5.5.893 that was pushed a couple weeks ago, but haven't had any notification from Moto that I have the 901 update available for update/ install.
GNex!

Well, I hit a snag.

Coming from 5.8. 894 and I guess I pulled the trigger too soon. Failed to notice that the OTA Zip file were not yet transferred to the SD card. Got thru the script past the webtop install and to the first reboot. Failed there and now I have the AP Fast boot message "Invalid CG Version (CG: boot)"

Ideas as to how to progress from here?

I pulled the SD card and copied the two OTA zip file to the root, I just can't seem to get to that portion of the script.

I will try running the script again from the beginning.

Thanks,

RMD

<EDIT> Second run messages:

Invalid CG TV (CG: system): Invalid SP Data
Invalid CG OTV (CG: webtop): Invalid SP Data
Invalid CG Version (CG: boot)

Any ideas where to go from here?

Thanks,

Gotta run out, will try to figure this out when I get back.

Thanks for guidance/ideas.

My install was going great with no errors, after root completed successfully my phone rebooted and I was expecting recovery mode but I am stuck in a boot loop. Any ideas what caused this and what I need to do now? I was running 5.7.893 unrooted if that makes any difference. Thanks!

I ended up there from the the other method. I pulled battery, booted into stock recovery (both vol buttons) and re-applied the update. worked for me.

Yeah, I took an old usb cord, stripped it and have red and black wires connected to battery.

Have been using p3droid files from October (5.893) and waiting for update since. Rebloated with TBH. Pushed files successfully. When it came to manual boot, it would not allow me to install either 901 or 593 with aborts both times. When trying to reboot phone, it goes into Fastboot boot failure

Invalid CG Version (CG: boot)

re-did the OP one-click, then got boot failure again; this time

Invalid CG OTV (CG: system): Invalid SP Data
Invalid CG OTV (CG: webtop): Invalid SP Data
Invalid CG Version (CG: boot)

Running OP one click again...could use some guidance/help.

Uhm, why does my TiBu say I do not have root? My Bionic is full of bloatware. Any ideas? How to root 5.5.901?

Above is a fix for keeping root through this process.

Includes updated su binary's and latest zergrush.

fyi - this method will throw cdt.bin issues if previously on 59901 and you stop at 55893.
included cdt.bin from 901 (named cdt.901). If getting a CG error on cdt.bin, run "moto-fastboot flash cdt.bin cdt.901".

boot CG errors are usaully because 886 boot file was successful. Start stock recovery and apply 55893 and 59901 updates.

other CG errors, try starting the batch over.

Howdy,
Used this method. All went fine all the way thru. At the end I selected the update893.zip and then the update901.zip, annd applied fine. When it came back up, the root process started, but has left me without root, but sitting with a fully functioning stock 901 phone (no root) :(

coming from rooted 5.5.893 with rooted forever tweak.

Just a quick question. How long should it take to get past the first sending 'system' <262144 KB>....

I ask because mine has been sitting there for 20 minutes. If it is not supposed to be there that long, please recommend appropriate actions.

Thanks, Robert
