    Guys

    Would I be able to receive and install OTA updates after rooting my phone (only rooting to use wifi tether). I know Verizon's coming out with a patch for some of the problems plaguing the X in the next few weeks and of course I want to receive Gingerbread when it's out too

    Thank you

    i believe you can still update as long as your not running a leak ...not too sure though and in any event if you cant update then you can always flash sbf and then update

    As long as you don't flash custom ROMs or mess with system apps you should be just fine

    Just sbf to ota and you're set if you want the update, if you're running a leak, that is... if you wanna.

    If you're running version 2.3.15 and not a custom rom (many roms disable the check for updates), you should be good. You probably also need the apps that came with your phone (CityId, Blockbuster, etc) to successfully update.

    If a Moto update tries to update a program it will fail until it's properly installed.

    You should check to make sure you still have those files to restore. O/w I've seen posts where all stock froyo apps were available as a download.

    I tried the new 2.2.1 leak that P3 put up through his TBH app. It's nice. It's back to stock. You can't theme it, because themes are set to be used over 2.3.15 and he said that would make them unstable. I like my themes and can wait for updated roms and themes to be written for this update.

    An unthemed phone has an unhappy owner.
