This method really works. I thought I was permanently hosed, but Timmy10shoes helped me until I was back to stock .886 and working. Talk about giving to the community, thanks.

Here is where I am stuck at. Was able to get back into android through another method by flashing a few files from 893 and 886 manually. Once I got back into android, I tried using 4everoot 2.1 with option #1, it failed. got me stuck at AP Flash Failured.

Pull Battery, hold down vol + and -, and select normal boot.

Back into Android.

Tried OTA in the About Phone, it download, it reboots, it tries to install. Failed.

reboot back into Android.

Tried again the 4everoot 2.1, this time with option 3, just root only. Pass

reboot back into android.

So, the next question is, should OTA fail or pass this time or go into recovery and flash 893 and 901?

If you had ever used cheesecake or flashed the .7.893 kernel you will have to use a method like this one or P3's 1-click path saver to go back to stock with the original .886 kernel/radio. The method you used to get back into android probably did not take your radio/kernel back. OTA's will fail with the .7.893 kernel. After I used this method, I was able to use dhackers "r3l3as3droot and for3v3r root for the bionic 2.1" stickied in the bionic developer forum. I used option 2 to root and apply forever root. Then I took the OTA .893 update successfully and kept root. I should now be able to take the .901 OTA, but I'm holding off trying to determine if I will be able to go back to the Kin3tx rom with working webtop hack if I take it.

I did skull this manually, and can confirm that after 5.5.893 you can flash 5.9.901 over it.

Finally finish after 20 hours of struggle. This post worked, of all the hundreds I've tried.

Now on 5.9.901, i've noticed my I lost 3g/4g signal. Not getting anything. Still rooted I think, haven't confirm. Trying to figure out why no signal at the moment.

On 5.9.901 I've been able to maintain 3G, but no 4G. I know if I was still on 5.7.893 I'd have nothing. I'm home and on wifi now anyway.
