    1.5.7 and Rooted, how do I update to 1.83?

    After reading many different threads on here and xda I am utterly confused on what to do to update to 1.83. My atrix is on 1.5.7 and rooted with no other mods but it will not update after I download the file. What is my best course of action?

    Any help would be appreciated. Thanks in advanced

    I dont mean to seem rude...but PLEASE search for your answer. New questions deserve answers, and we can't see them if the same thing pops up over and over

    If you have no mods (webtop hack, deleted system apps, hdmi mirroring, ROM), have you frozen anything with TiBU or BloatFreezer?

    If not, then you best bet would be to use the links as she mentioned to find how to flash a fresh SBF 4.1.26 or 4.1.57, then update, then root using GingerBreak.

    You can also just sbf flash 83 and skip everything with downloading and all that all together. Much easier that way.

    Either way, it's all in SIMPLE english, not dev speak in my link.

    Welp.. guess that takes care of my curiosity. I'll stick with swiftkey in the mean time until moto and swype decide to bless us with a little update.

    So .83 downloaded on it's own last week and I didn't want to actually update until I knew my path forward (rooting and such). Well, I accidentally hit the install button instead of the ignore button on Friday and after a few expletives I was updated against my will (seems I need to figure out the freezing function of TiBU). I lost root of course, can't access BofA, etc. The extra speed has been nice, though.

    Just to make sure I have this right, I should flash a fresh .83 (as opposed to .57) then Gingerbreak, then pick up the pieces from there? (Jump in at step 4 on itsnowornever's all-inclusive thread).

    Thanks.
