correct. will NOT work with amon or clockwork permantly installed. this is why i typically recomend the rotoed stock crowd to fastboot boot recovery when they need it,and not fastboot flash it.

you can run the ruu. or you can wait patiently for a .12 ruu to be released,then run that. or you could be impatient and flsh the .10 leak,and then get stuck on it,untill the .12 one comes out

honestly... no. ive had OTAs work when rooted,and modified with frozen/deleted apps. i have read reports of OTAs not working when too many apps have been deleted,but i havent verified or disproved it.

it also could possibly be a bad download to the phone(one reason im not real fond of OTAs)

**one last bit of info,once the phone as downloaded the OTA and tried to apply it,you are prolly SOL if it failed becasuse of a custom recovery. restoring the stock recovery at this point,usually does not apply the OTA.
