Default Motoblur Update 219 +Download (Instructions modified for Root users)

DOWNLOAD AND INSTALL AT YOUR OWN RISK.

This will temporarily disable Safestrap, but once appled, you can restore Safestrap, and your previous Safe system should still be intact.

This is the Motorola update that is being soak tested. To install it, I unfroze all apps, used Voodoo Root Keeper to backup root, and installed from SD card.

To install from SD:
1. Download the file and place it at the root of the SD. After backing up root with Voodoo and unfreezing all apps, prepare to shut down the phone. You should temp-unroot with VooDoo at this point.
2. When turning the phone on, press and hold vol-up and vol-down at the same time. When you have the bootloader menu, press vol-down and then vol-up to get to Motorola recovery.
3. Reveal the recovery options by pressing vol-up and vol-down at the same time when the android and exclanation mark appears.
4. Choose to install a zip from SD, and choose the update. Power button serves as select, volume buttons to move selection.
5. When the update finishes and your phone reboots, restore root from Voodoo, and re-freeze any bloat. You can also restore Safestrap now.

Direct Download of Update Package:

Recommended Software:

- AntTek App Manager
- Voodoo OTA Root Keeper

NOTE: If you lose Root accidentally, that is OK, just re-root the same way you did before.

NOTE 2: Did you delete or modify your system apps instead of just freezing them? This update will fail. You need to take these packages from the original firmware and use them to replace yours. The zip file contains just the packages you need extracted from skylarmb's very useful ROM.

All i did was use voodoo to temp unroot and installed update. Worked fine for me. But if this post was here before i did anything i would've followed it. I am having one issue tho. Play store wants to force close a bit. Not alot but it never did before

These directions are gathered from several locations and are designed to cover most situations. If you have not frozen bloat applications, you don't need to do the unfreezing part. My goal was to try to answer everything important in one place, such as keeping root, restoring safestrap, and bypassing the system integrity check.

I have been able to get all the way the the install part but it keeps aborting because of an invalad signature. I also read that you need to installing fro the sdcard-ext. While in recovery I have no option to navigate to my ext card... any thought? Thanks everyone

Motorola's recovery ONLY shows the external sd card, sd-ext is just what Android calls it. If you are failing in a bad signature, have you made sure to unfreeze all apps? The patch checks that the initial system is intact before installing, so all the original software has to be there.

Here is a copy of my /system/app folder. Some stuff is frozen, but everything is in there. Let me know if the file is corrupted, I zipped and uploaded it from my phone. The frozen stuff has _fro appended to the file name.

Thanks for the instructions. Everything installed fine for me and root was easy to restore. The battery life has been great the last 2 days, but haven't used it a ton yet.

i think it's saying a checksum failed on BackupAssistanceClient.apk. how does one go about fixing this?

Make sure you have removed _fro from the apks related to backup assistant if you are copying them over. Also, I just realized, it might be an updated version (omg! Unlisted updated component!) Grab skylarmb's stock rooted rom, unzip it, and use the apk from there. It's a bit more of a pain than just a single zip of the folder, but it should have the upgradeable version of the apk.
