I applied p3's forever root method and after some doubt and mental quarrel i decided to go through with it. I am now running rooted .893 it seems faster so far. Screenshots to come.

I am in no way responsible for your actions. The krakken lies ahead. There is no turning back. Please think about this before you proceed and know that until we have a fastboot restore point there is no way to restore a softbrick.

From .886 stock rooted bloat must be present. Flash to stock before proceeding.
Apply forever root and reboot for safety sakes.

P3droids Forever root- root explorer Method

go to /system/bin/open in text editor - mount_ext3.sh add the following lines to the very bottom (i placed 2 spaces between the las line and the first line of the script)

chmod 4755 /system/bin/su
chmod 4755 /system/xbin/su
chmod 4755 /system/app/Superuser.apk

Then using the cheesecake app change your server to staging and download the update. 5.5.893

Then apply as normal let phone do its thing allow ten minutes or so for install and maybe 7 for first boot.

Enjoy your new much more battery efficient Droid Bionic running 5.5.893 rooted!

Bionic bootstrap works.
Rom manager works including cwmr.
So far all apps work fine.
Battery seems better but time will tell.
Cell standby greatly reduced!
Blur UI faster more responsive.
Camera slightly faster.

On the script did you apply the text right under the last sentence or did you leave a space in between?

I used 2 spaces in between the last line and the script. Make sure you check to see if it saved before you go updating.

Nice job OP.

I was wondering about this, as I keep finding this update via cheesecake. I'm liking unl3ash3d v1.8 too much to switch, but thanks for being our guinea pig.
