Default 4.2.1 Update Discussion for rooted users

Got notified of OTA, I am rooted and unlocked. I downloaded and installed, CW mod kicked in and asked if I wanted to install the 'untrusted package' I said yes. Install seemed to go smooth, but still showing 4.2 and OTA not an option now. Not a big deal but now do I have to side load?

I'm guessing this shouldn't affect bunches of apps making them incompatible since it's a small update. Please post if the new update screws anything up. I'll update later when I time to root againif ota root keeper doesn't work

I haven't gotten a chance to go through the update yet. I'll download it now and look through the script

Err- I read that completely wrong.


No, there shouldnt be any new app incompatibilities with this update

Default Kind of annoying. I think I'm gonna block it.

Gonna block it till I know its safe.
Can it be rerooted?
Does ota root keeper work with it?
Any issues with stick mount or other apps?

There should not be any new app incompatibilites, its pretty much just fixing the people-calendar issues.

It is rootable. This is a nexus device, it will always be rootable

I'm going to move all root-related posts to the ATR section

I updated manually using TWRP and now I've lost my root but I am running 4.2.1 successfully.

I had OTA RootKeeper installed, so I'm not sure why it didn't keep root. Root stayed fine when I had updated from 4.1.2 to 4.2 with CWM and OTA Root Keeper. Maybe it was TWRP's fault, it didn't ask me to save root like CWM did.

Can I simply get root back by running my Nexus 7 through the root procedure in the 3.2.0 version of the Nexus 7 Toolkit?

Or do I have to wait for it to be updated?

Select the any build/version number option in wugs toolkit under nexus 7 and you'll be good to go.

If anybody wants to keep root and update to 4.2.1 then flash paranoid android, the latest version ( 2.99 beta 5) is based off 4.2.1
I believe they are working out bugs though. I updated through goo and ran into force close hell.

Nope. Worst case scenario youll have to reroot after the update, but that takes only 2 mins with wugs toolkit

My N7 is rooted, stock rom, cwm recovery, voodoo ota rootkeeper, supersu. I d/l the update from Droid Life and copied it from my computer to the N7 internal storage. Booted into cwm recovery, chose to install zip from sdcard, chose the d/l'd file from the /0 folder (filename 659e6288b....zip), chose to reboot system, answered 'Yes' to preventing flashing stock recovery, answered 'Yes' to keeping root. All is good. Still have root and cwm recovery.

Got it this afternoon, it broke root so I tried to reboot to recovery (TWRP) but it was stock recovery. Reflashed TWRP with fastboot and flashed SuperSU, Busybox, and the permanent recovery fix (all from the toolkit). Done and working

Default What I want to know is did anyone hide root with ota root keeper?

Then do the official ota and what were the results? Retained root yes? Or no? If not then rerooting with root kit is necessary. Maybe an annoyance. So far I've done all otas but trying to decide whether or not to sit this one out.

I still haven't got root back since the first update (4.1.1?). Lost root after absently updating without considering loosing root. So I couldn't get it back after the update it was practically stuck at half root.

The new update is terrible imo, The new lock keypad is less professional than before and the clock is kind of weird.

Default Id sit it out because update isn't amazing

Even though its doable with rootkit I have better things to do then spend two hours rerooting. How so is 4.2.1 keyboard less professional? Even if I sit it out ill eventually have to face the music.

Did you rerun the toolkit? That's all you have to do

The only real difference between 4.2 amd 4.2.1 is the December bug patch.

Rerooting takes less than 5 minutes

I am a noobie, But found the biggist mistake I have made is to let it upgrade to 4.2.1 I have now lost root, And I have tried using nexus root toolkit 1.60 and it cannot or will not root, Nexus root toolkit has no 4.2.1 as a choice of model to root and when I try the Android ##any it does nothing, I cannot put a custom recovery on tried cwm and twm neither will work (might be because its not rooted) will wait to see if nexus root toolkit 1.61 comes out soon.

Any version should work just fine, so I'm not sure what the issue is there. Your sure you are in the nexus 7 selections?

You can always manually install the recovery and push su files. Nexus devices are ALWAYS rootable.

You have the stock recovery. You'll need to install a custom one

Successfully updated 5mins ago using OTA Root keeper and Survival mode in SuperSU. Root still kept. Mind you it does look like this small update broke stick mount again. Sure the dev will sort out soon.

Blocking updates till your ready works.
Also thanks for confirming ota root keeper works. What some don't get is if ota rootkeeper preserves root its easier. No wasting time trouble shooting to get it back.
You had ota rootkeeper and root saver enabled at same time? I've only done one at a time and super su rootsaver didn't work. Which leads me to believe ota rootkeeper is the only one that works. But you have to hide root and then take official ota

Updates ONLY from 4.2 to 4.2.1 without the app checks the updater does

Welcome!

Rooting is very device specific. The folks over at http://androidforums.com/optimus-v-all-things-root/ may be able to help you troubleshoot

Can I simply get root back by running my Nexus 7 through the root procedure in the 3.2.0 version of the Nexus 7 Toolkit?

Or do I have to wait for it to be updated?
Yes TWRP doesn't ask, one of the reason I like CWM, I've never lost root with it, and you don't need OTA Rootkeeper, CWM has it's own settings to maintain root.
