Rooted Bell Atrix with TB frozen bloatware - OTA update??
I have a bell atrix with bloatware i froze using titanium backup.
Also, importantly, I attempted the webtop mod using CWM. However, that installation failed, or at least the phone said it did, and I haven't attempted it since. I read a Mod's post that applying an OTA update over the webtop mod (example of modded root files) can hardbrick my phone.
Not to mention, by freezing bloat apps, I guess I've made some changes there too.
So, a few critical questions before the Bell OTA 2.3.4 comes out:
1) If my bloat stays frozen, will I still receive an OTA update notification at all?
(mainly want to know this so my brother doesn't brick it when I give it to him in a few days)
2) If I de-freeze the bloat, would it be safe for me to install the OTA update afterwards? I'm mainly asking this because of the failed Webtop mod (really regret doing that...) and don't want an expensive brick. Will I have to "flash" to some previous firmware? In that case...
3) What is the safest way to flash back on a BELL atrix? I know there is a thread explaining this, but most of it seems to apply to the AT&T atrix, and I'm getting a lot of mixed feedback on the Bell SBF that is being distributed around. I just need a 100% foolproof method because I REALLY cannot afford to brick this phone!!
And also, what will happen if I do the "Factory Data Reset" under "Privacy Settings" with all this bloatware frozen and a potential mod to the webtop app? How about with the bloat unfrozen?
Thanks in advance everyone!!! I apologize for such a high volume of queries.
