Default Dev Server OTA File: USE CAUTION IF YOU'RE ROOTED

POST REMOVED.

I'd like to apologize for posting this update which had previously been available to soak test members and not in wide release. The file was not altered in any way or distributed with any intent of causing harm to Motorola or Verizon.

It was a bad judgment call in posting it for others to use. I was excited at the prospect of bug fixes and feature improvements to what is an otherwise fantastic phone.

That is all. Nothing to see here. Move along.

So what exactly is this? A leaked OTA essentially?

So after looking through this file, I placed it on my sdcard, and patched through recovery (power + x).

I was basically reset to stock:
- De-rooted
- Made sure I had all my bloatware back
- Wiped user/cache (this was probably unnecessary but i was all messed up from doing the OTA hacking anyway)

The patch has fixes for many items:
- BP upgrade for the Radio
- Talk2 for Video
- Boot.img patch
- Recovery.img patch
- Various patches to alot of system files
- And some stupid bloatware patches as well.

User's beware if you also want to patch this file. Be sure to be as close to stock as you can get.

Were you able to re-root after flashing?

This sounds like the OTA that is being pushed to D3 owners that are in Motorola's soak group. Radio fixes and whatnot for battery life purposes. I could be wrong though.

Million dollar question. I want the updated gtalk when I get my replacement D3 tomorrow. I'll be completely stock so I'll be good to go on this as long as the same root exploit exists. I can't imagine they had time to remove it though.

You can re-root using the same exploit.

Done lol, I just took the apk out of the update and installed right over the existing. You also need the libtalk_jni.so from there and out it in the syste/lib folder and you are all set new gtalk with video
