    I just noticed a OTA update (1.47.651.1) but I have Unrevoked installed on my phone for use with the Wireless Tether app.. Is it safe to apply this update or will it mess up the Unrevoked/Superuser access?

    Its not 100% tested by any Devs out there yet. Its safe to say, wait and let the professionals check it out first. :)

    I'm a daredevil so I updated with unrevoked/tether...
    As the guinea pig, it killed unrevoked :) Meh, i anticipate another root method will come out soon for this so I'm not too worried.

    I just wanted to add that after reading a few threads I successfully installed the new update. For safety I uninstalled Unrevoked,Super User & Wireless Tether before applying the update.

    Updated with unrevoked on no problem except it prevents u from using the wireless tether after update due to it not being able to root for now anyways

    same here. Updated with unrevoked still installed. Update went smooth ony had to replace one widget. Wireless Tether comfirmed to be broken by for now. Phone seems little snappier. Feel bad for all the bricks out there. I know how aggrevating it can be. Good luck.

    Same here. No problems. Of course the local privileged escalation exploit unrevoked was using is patched.
