Lightbulb for those wanting to update to 5.6.0

Or, read the wiki at http://motoactv.wikispaces.com/!

Straight from the wiki:

"Note 2: For the time being, if you root your MotoACTV you will not be able to further upgrade it to the latest or any coming stock firmware, you will get the unknown serial number error."

I'm not trying to sound mean, but we get tired of answering this question so many times.

There is *NO* way to return to stock fully, to be able to update. Using the "Return to Stock" button on the root tool works to return to stock, but you still won't be able to update. We are working on roms that have the latest updates patched in manually.

Edit: Just added a FAQ to the wiki.

There's a modified boot.img over on http://dl.opticaldelusion.org/boot-5.6.0-root.img that gives root access via adb.

peablo and prack,

just update all the way like normal and then pick up the 5.6.0 boot image from the quoted post and then follow the guide at the wikispaces, easy peazy.

when using the 5.6.0 boot image with the guide though...
MAKE SURE YOU DON'T USE THE FLASH MODIFIED BOOT IMAGE BUTTON!
manually flash the boot image posted there, using fastboot (with the command "fastboot flash boot boot.img" without the quotes.

then the rest of the guide works great.

Just updated the rooting section of the wiki to accommodate all 3 versions now. Soon, I'll update the root tool itself to pull out the version number and do everything automatically.

Hope that helps in enough detail.

disconnect your device, power it off, then hold the start and power buttons for 3 seconds,then release. it will place the device into fastboot, then reconnect your device and try again.

hope that helps, if you did this already, maybe ClearD knows something i don't, lol.
but it worked just fine for me.

generaly the standard with moderate usage is roughly 8 full hours. but i can usualy get 2-3 days of use out of my device if i have everything set for marathon mode in the settings and the brightness all the way down. running for an hour or two a day(everything ON, gps, bluetooth, and so on).

ClearD is working on getting an underclock/undervolt from the other's working to further lengthen the battery life.

Not me, BDAman80 is working on the kernel side of things. He's half of every Rom I work on, and a kernel god lol.

peablo, are you putting the device into fastboot? It shows a black screen with some white writing on the MotoACTV like it says to do in the wiki? Did you install motocast on your computer to get the device drivers as well?
