    After reboot it showed a radio update notice. Playing with stuff to figure out if wifi tether was blocked.

    No changes. According to metro there was no fota update. At first we thought it was a radio update but I later learned the radio versions didn't change.

    Im inclined to believe metro. I don't think there actually was a fota update. Everyone that has seen the update message has one thing in common, they are rooted. Non-rooted attain users didn't get a fota update or message.

    Now ask me why we got the message, and ill say hell if I know lol.

    I didn't say ALL rooted attains. I said the only people to get it have rooted attains.

    Really? I hadn't heard of anyone with an unrooted phone getting it until now. Hmm maybe a conspiracy by metro? Lol. It didn't seem to do anything and they deny it even happened.

    Wanna settle it? See what may change?

    Find a way to compare a full dump from a fresh rooted phone to one from the same phone after it auto updates or whatever is going on.
