Has anyone been able to find out what the differences are between the updates? I mean looks like there is about 2mbs worth of something missing in the second OTA.

I'd like to know if the basebands are the same since the 9.18.79 update seems to have screwed up my radios a bit.  I'm almost tempted to FXZ back to MR4 and take the 9.20.1 update and see what happens.

Was your update successful or did it fail?

Good to know. So the baseband is the same between the two versions.

I have been holding off grabbing the update. I want to make sure I do NOT Lose Root. I have Voodoo OTA Rootkeeper Installed. Guess I keep reading post's to see what happens.

Current--------------------------------Razr HD 9.16.6----Version--4.1.2

Build----------------------------------------------------------------------------------9.8.1Q-62_VQW_MR-2

 

I have read that to use root keeper. Tap on PROTECT ROOT-Then Update.

I have also read that I need to Tap-Protect root- THEN  Temp-UNROOT.Then Update. Which is correct?

 

I sure hope the Rootkeeper  Works well.

That's been reported both ways - BUT as long as your bootloader is unlocked, it makes no difference.  You can fix root in your custom recovery.

Well, if you value root, unlocking your bootloader is the way to go. They have patched to boot loader exploit in this update so if you take the update that option will no longer be available.

I have read a bit about unlocking the bootloader. I really do not know what I would do with an unlocked bootloader.

What type Of options would that open up for me. Should I unlock the bootloader.

For now I just really Need to make sure I do NOT lose root.

So If I do unlock the bootloaded. Will Voodoo ALSO Protect that.

By the way. I THANK YOU for the info.

What is the BEST & Easiest way to UNLOCK the Bootloaded.?? If I should ?

The two...unlocking and maintaining root....are joined at the hip.  If you remain locked and take the update, you can pray that the current root exploit works for you.  It might.  It might not.  Or, you can unlock, take the update, install a custom recovery, flash a zip file and be done with full root.  And for all updates going forward, the same process.  No root exploit needed.  Even if you never flash roms, if you care about root at all, you should consider unlocking.
