Link is (finally) fixed. Enjoy.

I rooted and installed Eclipse yesterday. I would like to return to bone stock. I have RSD Lite installed. What else do I need and where do I find them (that is not a bad link)? I was on the official .902 update. Thanks for any help!

BTW: I am using Safestrap. I went to my unsafe system(stock), and now it won't let me back to Eclipse. I says that it cannot restore data.

Pappy: Occasionally Eclipse doesn't play nice with Safestrap. Did you use Quick Toggle? That will create problems. Anyway, I recommend you use the Pathsaver script in the OP to restore. Good luck.

I have to say this this is absolutely the best guide to get this phone rooted and customised. Got my Bionic on Monday and after a little bit of light reading on these forums I now have a rooted stock system and with Safestrap I have a system that I can mess around with. Thank You for this Guide. Much appreciated.

Hello,

While I am a n00b to this community that is only because I typically do a lot of research before I make any changes and then leave it alone once it works.

When I first received my Bionic on 893 I used Pete's tools to root it. That worked perfect. Now I need to update to the latest code and re-root it. In your Guide you mention that the device must be 'stock', to verify my device is stock I attempted to update it OTA but it failed. I have no ROMs or anything of that nature installed. What is the best course of action to get my Bionic to stock so that I can update to 902 and install SafeStrap while not losing my data/apps?

Thank you.

Have any verizon bloat frozen / deleted? This can cause OTAs to fail too.

Try using the Pathsaver tool in the OP. Report back on how it goes. Also, eye__dea has good advice above.
