It's that time again folks... leaked updates! (Yay~!)
This time I got a special treat. I did not want to leave my comfortable place with safestrap installed and booted on Arctic Rom on 211 to fastboot the 6.12.181 files, re-upgrade to 211 stock, upgrade to 214 just to see a small difference in the kernel. Therefore. I pulled and patched the biggest part of this leak update which is the boot.img (New ICS 4.0.4 kernel, hopefully fixing issues with battery life people have on 211 now!).
So two things today:
- Update zip to install in MotoRecovery from stock 6.16.211
File Size: 6.7 MB
- Utility to flash the new kernel, and the ability to flash 211 kernel back + root if you want to.
File Size: 15.5 MB
Then choose the root option in the utility, then go back to AP Fastboot and choose the option for 214 or 211, your choice. I suggest 214 since its newer
This will NOT get you stuck on an ICS leak and can be downgraded to 211 if you choose (or even 6.14.84 if you really wanted too.).
NOTE: To confirm it worked. Under Settings>About Phone the Kernel build date will show June 29th on the 214 kernel.
Thanks topdog031382 for the instructions to average people:
ok listen if you are on a custom ROM, you can use the utility that Matt has created which is the second link in the OP. So if you are on a custom ROM download the utility unzip it to your computer run the bat file and flash the .214 img with your phone in AP Fastboot Mode, this will give you the .214 kernel. If you want to go back to the .211 kernel then put your phone back into AP Fastboot Mode flash the .211 kernel then reboot and you are back on the original kernel. You DO NOT have to be stock .211 if you use the utility. If you choose to use the zip file (the first link posted in the OP) then use the 1.7 utility and run option 2 do a factory reset install the .211 zip (will be named 181). Once installed reboot. Once it reboots, shut the phone off and boot into the moto recovery and install the OTHER zip file which will be named .211 and should also be placed on your SD card (going to .214). After installation reboot and you will be on the .214 leak with the new updated kernel. It is much easier to just use the Utility and flash the img though. Does this sound about right Matt? Hopefully this will help a little lol
