I'm working on it. Ya have to actually notice the changes first.
But for now, everything that is in the changelog for the 902 and 905 update is the same in this update. But something is new.

Let me get something clear: Have you flashed the actual 905 update?

yeah. just 2 days ago. i have 905 with MavRom. Installed with cwm recovery. (On safe system..)
but even if 906 is not so necessary, i would like to know the method to be able to update. (perhaps when 907 will appear....)

Since 906 is rootable, and you have applied the 905 update, I would just take the plunge to 906.

It will unroot the phone, but the 906 is rootable, so backup your rom with safestrap first.

Download the update, put it on your sdcard, boot into recovery and install the update.

I have maverick rom installed, so when i tried to install 906 it does not work... i believe i have to return to 905 stock. And i have maverick rom installed with cwm recovery..on safe system.

You have to install it in stock recovery; not the safestrap recovery.
Hold Power and the Hard X Button until ya see the triangle with the android robot.

Hold both volume keys simultaneously and then install the update.

To those who need instructions on installing, and do not care as long as it works:

It is likely someone has a better method, but I was able to upgrade to 906 going the route provided below. Both roms will be wiped during this process but your internal and external SD's should not be affected.

1. Put the 906 update on the root of your external SD card.
2. Turn off phone.
3. Boot in Safestrap. Toggle safestrap off.
4. Reboot
5. Pull battery or shut phone down again
6. While turning on phone hold down X until you see a triangle with an ! and a droid dude.
7. Press both the up and down volume buttons at the same time until you get to the bootloader menu.
8. Wipe phone.
9. Install update from external SD card.
10. Choose 906
11. Reboot.
12. Wait awhile.
13. Use Droid 4 root exploit to get root
14. Re-install safestrap.
15. Done!
(You maybe able to restore an old Rom you have backed up on safestrap. I am not going to try it)
