Rooting looked scary ..... but it turns out that the hardest part (and by hard I mean an hour on the phone with non-English support) was getting the MSL. Now that I have that, I'm not afraid of Virgin Mobil and their silly updates - hehe
this reminds me of the virgin mobile optimus v "update" that didnt do much of anything other than bork the ability to root the phone. this program probably isnt worth the data it will consume downloading it. only good thing i can see coming from this is developers getting ahold of the update and finding a better way to root and or make a working recovery. other than that virgin mobile can keep their update.
Aren't there apps on the market to block OTA updates? Or OTA rootkeeper?
I have OTA Rootkeeper on my Transformer, but it has a custom ROM so it doesn't get OTA updates any longer. It did work prior to the ROM though. Would be a good idea to install if your Elite is rooted though. Sorry rambling now and past the point of this being a useful post.
Thanks for the OTA Rootkeeper tip. When I was speaking to a Tier 2 support tech, he said that soon no one will experience Error 67 again, with an OTA update. I'm not sure he knows what he's talking about, as he did shoot me some fluff bs. If this is true, the take away point is that they might not be giving away MSLs soon, due to the update alleviating the need to do a master reset in most cases.
