I read that Hyperdrive ROM removes the Samsung and Verizon OTA updaters, so I shouldn't get anything UNLESS I return to Stock Slot and the stock ROM.

Bassjo: Not sure about bricking, but if you're rooted and ROMmed, root will likely be broken, the ability to remove root apps disabled, and Safestrap broken. If Safestrap can't boot, one of two things will happen:

(a) The phone will boot normally into the updated stock ROM and you've lost all your hard work.

(b) The phone will continuously try to boot into a ROM slot that has been disabled, and will be caught in a perpetual bootloop.

Which will happen? I DON'T KNOW! And I don't mean to find out. Anyone wanting to root & ROM need to do so NOW and not accept that OTA.
