Sorry for the noobish post, but I have been reading a bunch of threads and am still confused about this. I have a new DInc2 coming tomorrow from amazon, and it will be my first smart phone. I am planning to root just to freeze the bloatware with TI and to install things like droidwall, I don't care about custom roms (as of yet, anyways). I was under the impression that if you froze the bloatware, you could unfreeze it, do an ota, and then refreeze it after rerooting if need be. But I have now read quite a few threads on how you shouldn't ota after root and people having there phones stuck trying to update and not being able to get them to work afterwards. So, on stock root, which is it? If the answer is "don't update", I see that you can freeze the updater with TI, but is there ever really a reason you *need* to update for the phone to continue to work? Thanks for everybodies time .
