    Would a rooted Bionic not get PRL updates pushed to it?
    The one Ive got rooted has the 15027 PRL, but another non-rooted Bionic here is on 15044 PRL.

    I will writeup the manual method I used but, as already posted, the one clicks for D3 work well.
    Well, where is the writeup on the manual method you promised?

    Well, I could hardly do a better job than the guy that developed the method...

    I think most users, yourself included, will do better using the scripts already posted or other one click methods, even though I always advocate doing things manually at least once so you understand what is actually happening.

    Yeah, but you haven't written a beautiful Guide in a very long time. Dave & Busters now?

    Assuming root, how do you delete the locked bookmarks in the stock browser?

    There is a free app called Bookmarks Manager Folder that allows organizing and deleting of the locked bookmarks and doesn't require root either. It works well but once you make changes the stock bookmarks no longer auto arrange themselves by how often you visit them.

    If you use that app to delete the locked bookmarks, and then delete that app, you still cannot have the bookmarks autoarranged by usage?

    Really quiet here. Nothing new to safely use root access or backups like clockwork?

    We have root and 2 versions of a working bootstrap recovery as well as the stock firmware build including radio images to restore with RSD lite or fastboot.
    All of that means it is relatively safe to start playing around and there are several early "ROMs" available.

    The next hurdle is to get 2nd init fully working for a more complete ROM like CM7. The issue right now is getting the radio to work under the alternate system. This is going to be more difficult than prior devices because of the LTE radio and the new Moto chipset.

    Nonetheless, all the basic pieces are in place to safely mod your phone if you are careful and pay attention to details.
    The locked bootloader means no custom kernels so only system modifications are possible at this point.

    That isn't likely to change so learning to work within those constraints is critical to having fun.

    There are also many things that can be done with the webtop features that are really fascinating!

    With the Bionic out for a month now, there still doesn't seem to be any apps for overclocking. I wonder if this part was locked-down by Motorola, or has no one found a way to do it safely yet? On a side note, Im loving my new 2600K CPU PC that I built a few weeks ago, and it can easily overclock to 4.6 and 4.8Ghz. Still debating on doing a SSD drive, as most seems to have long-term issues that regular HDD don't have.

    Over and underclocking abilities would be useful. Really quiet compared to D1.
    How dangerous is it to use clocksync out of the Market?
