I believe he way it works is that when you flash CM9 over .904 stock the .904 radios stick -- even though CM9 may not have incorporated the other .904 enhancements yet --

Question Failes assert on "BooksPlay.apk"?
My 904 install stops on the "Google Play Books" apk and burps, refusing to install. Do I need to just find my 902 archive and replace the file from that update or am I screwed?

No. Disabling safestrap is unnecessary. See my OP for directions.

You can try that, hopefully it will work.

The .902 FXZ should have the file intact, which is a good thing, b/c if that doesn't work, you may need to FXZ to stock .902 and then apply the upgrade, which is what I did b/c I somehow hosed the unsafe backup, and thus you'll already have the file.

I safestrapped back to unsafe, went to recovery, installed Blur902, everything took, no errors. But now I'm in a bootloop and won't even go to safestrap. Ideas?

You might need to fxz back to 902 stock, then flash the update, root and install safestrap.

great update, zip worked flawlessly after i toggled back to unsafe to a stock rom, however i lost root, i just motofailed this sucker and reinstalled my safestrap recovery
i just enabled safe mode on it and now i'm back to my previous eclipse rom but still showing 902, i'm a little confused, should i retry this?

what roms are you guys using with this 904 update?
perhaps like you guys said maybe eclipse isn't compatible with this yet, i saw they are working on a 904 eclipse now

This sucks I really don't feel like fxz'ing back to stock, maybe I have a backup. But I really need a data fix I'm hoping this will help the ics roms' data

Your post is a bit dated. There are absolutely zero data drops/issues on the Axi0m 3-20 ICS ROM for 902 users. Been running that for 2 months, not one data drop here.

There is already a solution. Use this ROM:
http://rombot.droidhive.com/ROMs/tar...-20_SIGNED.zip

No need to flash Google apps. Just boot into Safe strap, wipe data/factory reset, format system, install that zip then reboot. You just need 902 (don't even need 904 but will work on it too). No more whining.
