The Motorola Droid Bionic has been updated to 5.9.902 via an over the air update that started this week. 5.9.902 brings a host of new features, improvements and fixes. You can view the full changelog from Verizon here. Some of the more notable improvements include fixes for black screen lockups, dock lockups, idle resets and improvements to the camera and several system apps.

While some users maintained root after the update, XDA users began reporting in this thread that  the update did, in fact, disable root access. Those that used the ’43V3R Root’ method have reported success preserving root after updating. All current root methods have been unsuccessful in rooting .902 after the updat. . . READ ON »

Want To Run Rooted .893 On Your Bionic? Here’s How…

bionic

As it is customary with Motorola, all of their stuff is locked beyond comprehension (albeit, there have been a few smart workarounds to customize our devices). It seems that the latest update for the Motorola Bionic is very tempting as it has a ton of improvements in terms of battery life, stability, and speed. However, the caveat is that if you flash this update, you will lose root. At least this was the case until XDA member Sjflowerhorn came up with a rather smart way of applying the update and keeping root in the process. The only thing that you must be sure of is that you must be on rooted stock .886 and all the bloatware must be left intact. The rest of the process seems to use P3droid’s forever root method. . .

Free Your Bionic From The HDMI Dock

bionic

So, as you are probably aware, the Droid Bionic is rather locked down all the way to the things that we can or cannot do without certain accessories. In case you are wondering, it seems that without a little “official” HDMI dock for the phone, the webtop application cannot be used, not even if you attach a HDMI cable to the device. This is now a thing of the past thanks to XDA Recognized Developer Fenny who just put a very nice and simple tutorial on how to get rid of the hardware verification done by the device. In essence, you have two ways of applying this: via ADB for those who like to do things the old fashioned way, and by flashing a zip file on your device. The end result is your newly acquired ability to . . . READ ON »
