Hello!
I'm back with another update.

The 5.7.906 update does include a kernel, BP and bootloader update just like 5.7.902 and 5.7.905.

The 5.7.906 update IS ROOTABLE using the exploit below.

Disclaimer: It is your choice to update your phone to this, not mine. If in any way do anything happen to your phone that never happened before, you are responsible. I am not responsible for anything that happens, ill effects or not, to the phone.


**OTA ROOTKEEPERS DO NOT WORK, PLEASE PROCEED WITH CAUTION**


THERE IS NO WAY BACK TO STOCK.

AFTER SEEING REPEATED PROBLEMS, IT IS RECOMMENDED THAT YOU FLASH THIS UPDATE WHILE ON A STOCK 5.6.890 OR OTHER UPDATE.
DO NOT FLASH OVER AN ICS ROM OR ANY ROM. IF YOU HAVE PERFORMED THE TBH DROID 3 RADIO HACK YOU ARE RECOMMENDED TO NOT INSTALL ANY LEAKS.



5.7.906 Download Link: http://dev-host.org/uEA
NOTE: If coming from 5.7.902 or 5.7.905, the kernel will not update. The kernels are the same in all three updates.

Downloading now...

I am going to be interested if this fixes a problem with mounting SD card as logical drive.

Edit: yes it looks like the mounting issue I was experiencing with 905 is fixed in 906!

I know there is no back to stock but is there a way to get back to this same build in the case of disaster?

I doubt it. You could try re-flashing the update but that has never worked for me.

You can reflash this update as well as the prior 5.7.902 and 5.7.905 because none of them assert anything except cdma_solana in the updater-script. They are designed, apparently, to flash over anything and bring it up to this build. They also contain full systems, which is why they break OTA root keepers because they replace everything in /system.

I have not flashed this one yet, but it appears to be like the other two leaks in that regard.

Lol I haven't gone much for looking over the update just yet, all ive noticed is a BP update at first glance.

I'd like to know why these particular 3 updates all have new systems, and they all have very close versions and build numbers.

Maybe Motorola is onto us. O.o
