    I know a lot of have questions (I checked the archives) but here are mine:

    1. My phone is rooted, should I unroot before updating? Or does it not matter
    2. Will the Netflix app work with the update? My hacked one stopped working and I can't seem to get it to update.
    3. What is the deal with rooting Gingerbread? I have the one step rooting and don't feel comfortable doing all the stuff myself so I am relying on the developers.
    4. Is there anything I should know about the update? the pros outweigh the cons? I have a few rooted only apps I use, but for the most part I think I can make do with stock.

    Thank you.

    1. you don't technically have to unroot, as long as you haven't removed any bloat or frozen any it should update but you will lose root.
    2. I think there is already an updated version for Netflix.
    3. Supposedly a "one click" method of rooting GB may not be possible so it is suggested that you load a pre rooted version.
    4. The update is awesome sauce and that is all you need to know.

    Ok so I just flashed this rooted gingerbread version but my whole phone is wiped clean. None of my apps, photos, music, etc transferred.

    Does this sound right?

    I can replace all the stuff but it is a bit of a hassle. I had it all set up just as I liked it. Any guidance is appreciated, thank you.

    Your apps should be linked to your google account, so they should re-download on their own
