Hello!
These are updates going for DROID 3 owners on the Verizon Wireless network. The 5.7.902 and 905 update does include a kernel, BP and bootloader update.

This update is known to quite a few but was not actually released fully due to the fact that it was not rootable and cannot be FXZ flashed back to 5.6.890.
This changed on February 11, as Hashcode rose up and said using the D4 root exploit can root this update. This was correct, I have used the exploit to root the 5.7.902 update. A lot have risen to say both the 5.7.902 and 5.7.905 update are rootable using the exploit below.

Disclaimer: It is your choice to update your phone to this, not mine. If in any way do anything happen to your phone that never happened before, you are responsible. I am not responsible for anything that happens, ill effects or not, to the phone.

**OTA ROOTKEEPERS DO NOT WORK, PLEASE PROCEED WITH CAUTION**


THERE IS NO WAY BACK TO STOCK.

AFTER SEEING REPEATED PROBLEMS, IT IS RECOMMENDED THAT YOU FLASH THIS UPDATE WHILE ON A STOCK 5.6.890 OR OTHER UPDATE.
DO NOT FLASH OVER AN ICS ROM OR ANY ROM. IF YOU HAVE PERFORMED THE TBH DROID 3 RADIO HACK YOU ARE RECOMMENDED TO NOT INSTALL ANY LEAKS.

You may download the 5.7.902 update (223.6 MB) or you can download the 5.7.905 (224.9 MB) from above.

CHANGELOG

5.7.902 Noticeable Changes:

CMAS (Commercial Mobile Alert Service) capability added.
Google+ added as Bloatware*

5.7.905 Noticeable Changes:
Increased Camera Stability
MotoBlur speed is increased
Some reporting better battery life
Faster speeds due to new Baseband
CMAS (Commercial Mobile Alert Service) capability added.
Google+ added as Bloatware*
AmazonMP3 added as optional install for bloatware, is listed under /system/apps folder
Newer Icons for select applications

*Android 4.0 (Ice Cream Sandwich) is HIGHLY integrated with Google+, and the app is usually only added as a bloatware addon if the phone is being prepared to see Android 4.0. Just this means we could be one step closer to getting a official ICS update!

Aaron, did it work? Also, did Hash tweet that this works? I'm sorry, but I just want to hear it from the man himself...I'd be very upset if I lost root.

It really depends on what your take of rooting is in this particular case.
