Consider it done.

Just to be clear though... I update using the official update first, then use the root tool with the "unsecured" boot image posted Or do I need to remain on 55.78, root, then update (no official update).

Any help i can give back to the community here, gladly done

Lol do you have google talk on a phone or pc by chance? I can guide you through it.

Use the official update first, to get to the highest update possible (might have to run more than once), then manually flash the boot image posted there, using fastboot (with the command "fastboot flash boot boot.img" without the quotes; I can guide you through that), then root with the "Root" button on the root tool (ignore flashing the boot image), then do a full backup with the root tool, and send the images I mainly only need the boot.img and system.img.

Are these steps going to help with getting those of us stuck on the original root method up to current?

ClearD, you're a hero. I'm looking forward to that new ROM. I hear these new updates are easier on the battery, which would be a huge plus.

Also. Battery has been a major issue for me, and looking at my battery usage, it looks like the top two culprits are wifi and bluetooth. Which I expected, I suppose. The thing is, though, I don't actually use the bluetooth on it 99% of the time, and there doesn't seem to be a way to turn it off in the bluetooth menu.

Also, Sargist, you mention getting Google Music working. Does it just play local music, or is there a way to stream your cloud music?

There is a way to turn off bluetooth in the standard settings application under wireless - bluetooth.

Or just do what I did and put the power control widget on your launcher to give you toggles for all of it. :P

Question ClearD, before i flash/backup/upload
hey ClearD, i'm on Gtalk... anyway, before i flash and such, i noticed the numbers don't match up. the boot img states it's for 5.6.0 but the software version listed on the device reads "MA 1.6.0 N8" i'm guessing thats just the OS version, right, not the boot version?

PS. bootloader fastboot mode states version "03.13"

just felt i should make sure so i don't mess somethin up.

i don't know about sargist, but google music works just fine for me playing local music, album art and all, however, i haven't found a way to set it up yet for cloud, my guess the login screen is bypassed so...idk.
