It doesn't get any easier that this! You must have Clockwork Recovery and a MicroSD card. Copy all needed zips to root of MicroSD. Comes with full root, sdcard support (still at sdcard/external), OTG for USB Host. Regardless of what setup you are coming from, MicroSD will be at /sdcard/external. Have fun!

Solarnz is the developer that wrote the necessary code to protect Internal Storage. There will be another thread on that though. I just put it here out of necessity.

Quote:

Step 1: Flash new recovery DOWNLOAD
Reboot System and boot back into recovery.

Step 2: Flash HC 3.1 System Update DOWNLOAD

Step 3: IMMEDIATELY flash Bootloader Patch DOWNLOAD
Wifi Only users SKIP STEP 4

Step 4: ONLY FOR VERIZON 3G DEVICES!!!
Flash this updated boot.img zip after Bootloader patch. DOWNLOAD Thanks a million Blades! Saved my butt!

Step 5: Return to main menu. Do a "wipe data/factory reset"
NOTE: Your internal storage (aka /sdcard) will be safe from this wipe. However, all other userdata will be wiped. Seems to be a necessary evil.

Step 6: Reboot

Step 7: Enjoy Honeycomb 3.1

Awesome. Does sd card still work or will we have to wait for a new kernel?

Edit: Ok, I see the first post has been updated and my question answered. Thanks . All good things come to those who wait

What about people that went back to stock and did the update to 3.1 (I used this thread to update http://forum.xda-developers.com/show...hp?t=1073462)? Can we just use the Bootloader Patch? or can we just run both items again?
