    i rooted my Inc last night. i pretty much just wanted to remove City ID, have Drocap2, and be able to use WiFi tether. i do not plan to overclock, or ever install a custom rom. i have all i want at this point.

    so the question is what happens when the next OTA is released? if i apply it do i immediately lose root and go back to where i was? what happens here?

    Almost always with any OTA you lose root, so just decline it and wait a few hours till a developer fixes it up with root and releases it.

    sounds good. from my experience with the droid, devs will probably have the update before verizon pushes it out anyway. we had 2.1 roms months before the official 2.1 was released by verizon.

    When an OTA comes will it ask first or just install?

    It will tell you that there is an update available and give you the option to download the update or decline.

    When some roms start surfacing they will most likely disable the ota updates as they've done with previous android phones that are rooted. If you don't have a custom rom and are rooted the ota will remove root access and you'll be back to waiting for them to develop a procedure to reroot.
