    Okay, my co-worker is on the Froyo .340 Rooted. If he takes the OTA when it comes -- will he have to re-set up all his home screens?

    I've tried telling him he'll lose root, but I can keep him w/ root with a data/cache wipe, but he doesn't want to have to do that.

    But now I'm questioning if he'll have to do that anyways with the OTA.

    Sorry for the "dumb" question.

    Well being rooted won't effect taking the OTA. If he removed bloat apps then he won't get it. And when taking an OTA the data isn't touched so no, homescreens would be the same

    Thanks...I thought they would be the same, but wasn't 100%. Thanks for the fast response!

    Taking the OTA is a lot like "upgrading" your windows pc from XP to windows 7. It doesn't touch your personal data or settings. It just "patches" your file system.

    The only difference is that you will lose root until there is a new method to root the OTA. The downloadable files are rooted already.

    Thanks again all. Used the 2-part method and he's good to go now!
