    Today it was announced that Google will be pushing out a security patch for Android 2.2 and below phones. Will this "play nice" with rooted phones or will there be conflict? Apparently the patch will be sent without action on part of the recipient.

    Thoughts??

    Thanks in advance!

    I'm not sure what exactly, but there is a article on Engadget about it. Wonder if rooted users will have issues?

    According to this Computer World story, the fix will be applied on the server end - not rolled out to handsets. Which makes sense - no having to wait for carriers to have to vet things and approve it and roll it out, finally, six months from now.

    well to me it sounds like a good thing. I am rooted and love it but for me the security is top priory. I am stoked that Google is addressing this
