    I know that flashing a generic ruu will unroot the phone but will it also removes cwm recovery?
    Please answer my question.

    I just did it . Just to test it out. I am going to flash a new rom anyway.
    So, no, it doesn't remove CWM recovery.

    Using CWM recovery, I backed up my current rom and flashed the stock ruu.
    the hboot is still there, volume down + power takes you to hboot, and from there when you go to recovery, you are back in cwm recovery, from where you can restore your backup or flash a different rom

    You can receive ota updates even with cwm recovery. But there hasn't been anything new out for months. If you want to install manually, all the latest ROMs are downloadable here:
    Football's Shipped Marvel ROM Collection

    Make sure that you install ROMs that are compatible with your phone (Marvel/MarvelC/MetroPCS).

    No, the OTA update doesn't need a locked bootloader, but...

    What happens is, when you do the WFS OTA update from 2.3.4 to 2.3.5., the update will lock your boot loader, and you have to go back and unlock it.

    Unfortunately the link to download WFS manager is currently working:(. But not to worry, the owner of the program is working on it. Just give it a few days. Keep checking the XDA forum
