    With the OTA update coming in 'early September', I'm starting to wonder if I install it, will it un-root my device? Or worse, brick it?

    I'm on the stock 2.1 with only root, no ROMs installed.

    I know on my D1 this was the case, un-root if you were on stock and not a custom ROM.

    I think at this point, its more assumptions... I really don't think anyone knows for sure.. With .604 everyone lost root, so that will either be the case or.... we'll wait and see when the time comes..

    Wont it be the same as how we kept root with leaked 2.2?
    2.1 rooted.."mv /system/bin/su /system/xbin/su"....do OTA 2.2
    keep root?
    ...or am I wrong?

    every OTA I have ever heard of takes away root. Its just a simple change of permissions.

    This may work but who knows motorola might stop that
