    Do you want to take away the privileges of an unlocked bootloader (the bootloader is always unlocked..its a hardware switch, but this would take away custom recoveries/ROMs. you can always reunlock) and update to the OTA?

    Do you want to stay unlocked and install stock 2.3.6/4.5.141 as a custom ROM file (stays unlocked/rooted).

    Or do you want to forget about the update and go back to custom ROMs?

    Let me know, I will get you the files/instructions you need..but each is a different method. For now leave the battery out, as the phone will not charge in a failed to boot bootloader state unless you have a factory cable.

    I have much experience with unlocked bootloaders and custom ROMs on the original ATRIX. I will do my best to hold your hand through any problem, small or large, on any phone. Please open up a thread in the help section (or Rescue Squad section if your phone is in dire need) or PM me. I don't bite

    You must reflash 4.5.91 sbf (since the files were corrupted in ota) with the pudding. This is done with rsd lite the same way you installed the pudding to unlock the bootloader except you wont have to use oem unlock commands through fastboot. Correct sbf file:

    Then you can install a 'fruitcake' for 4.5.141 (with or without webtop) the same way you installed a rom:

    (It says 4.5.140, that's a typo)

    Good to hear you're back up!

    If you're referring to OTA updates, then yes. Don't try to install OTAs if your boot screen shows "unlocked" or if you have a custom recovery. Other than that, you should be fine.
