    If the leak is the exact same as the OTA soak you got, then yes. 1-click will work. I have the leak on my phone ATM, rooted.

    try it , what harm can come from what i heard the ota is a good thing, go into the root selection and read alot of people like it, and from what i read was able to root after the soak test you shouldnt have a problem as long as everything is stock.

    Sounds like I shouldn't apply the update since I deleted a few apps that I really didn't need or want, like Kindle, and probably something else. I did make a back-up, pre-deletion though.

    Also, some are having problems connecting to their computer.

    QUESTION - how do I stop the reminder about the update from popping up?
