Default Update for XT860 Bell Canada

Hi Folks,

My phone is unlocked and it received the update OTA with no problem.

I am at 5.2.476.en.CA now and 2.3.6 =)

Thanks for posting! Quick question: Is your phone rooted as well?

I got the notification saying that the update is available but wanted to double check it is safe to install on a rooted + unlocked device.

Mine is unlocked and rooted, the update failed at first but it was because I'd uninstalled alot of bloatware using titanium backup. Once I installed the default apps it updated no problem. I lost root but have since re-rooted it.

@Bob: Which method did you use to re-root your XT860? I tried the adb method, bus that didn't work for me.

Update: Found that rooting using a method based on tooling made by ZergRush still works on a XT860 with Android 2.3.6.

So, the general consensus is that the update does not affect unlocking, but removes root.

Does this method of rooting still work afterward?

Or is there another tutorial I should follow?
