My fear was I would flash 5.7.906 with stock recovery, get bricked, and be stuck there because it failed while flashing like 5.7.894 does to the phone.

The 906 update only asserts ro.product.device, while the 894 update asserts ro.build.fingerprint; in other words, 906 just checks to make sure the device is a cdma solana, 894 checks to make sure it's a cdma solana running 890. So 906 is designed to be able to flash over anything essentially, kind of like a fxz in update format.
If for whatever reason it does brick your phone, you *should* be able to restore to a mostly 890 state (boot.img, cdt.bin, mbm.bin, mbmloader_hs.bin, and recovery.img are stuck on the latest versions once 906 is flashed.)
But it is strange that 894 is failing on bp; that's the radio image. as mentioned, 894 asserts 890, so if you're on stock 890 there's no reason it should be failing. I actually tried flashing from 890 to 894 after being on 906 in an attempt to get back to full stock 890; the flash succeeded, but on reboot i was stuck in fastboot mode until i flashed the newer boot, cdt, and recovery. i have no idea why bp is failing for you

I wonder if it's because I have done the radio hack? I should RSD Lite to 5.6.890 since that should reflash the radio then try to immediately apply 5.7.894, then 5.7.906 on top of that. Could you add me on GTalk in case I get seriously bricked so we can work that out?

What radio hack are you referring to? are you using the xt883 radio? if so, that could definitely be why it's failing. sure hit me up at mhous33...

You can use RSD Lite to go back, and then flash .906. I use the script to do it via moto-fastboot, but whatever works for you. Radio should not be affecting it at all.

Q9Nap and I just spent a bunch of time on GTalk. I'm unable to accept any signed radio image. We're stumped as to why, but we want to figure it out.

Flashing radio.img with rsdlite and fastboot is successful, but flashing any update in stock recovery fails on bp. only thing that makes sense that i can think of is that either the sdcard or update file is corrupt.

I never did get around to formatting my SD card. Stock recovery only sees the EXT SD correct?

I'm currently chatting with Moto... This is odd. I'm going to start my own thread for it to leave this one be.
