I posted in HowardForums this post just now After OTA AND Factory Reset you will LOOSE ROOT I posted in another thread about the guy @ the corp metro store here (Miami) yesterday said that the OTA was to unroot also. this was in our conversation because I kept switching from 4G to 1x/1D and before the OTA I never switched...just straight 4G but battery life blew. So tonight I did a factory reset thinking that if this did not solve the problem I would have to "unroot" my phone and take it back and they would swap it out, but ONLY a unrooted phone. OK So I did a factory reset. Good thing my contacts were on my gmail account. I LOST root. I went to the market and installed mybackup root, which I had before and had my stuff backed up on my SD card. Well it would NOT run saying I do not have root. Ok, so I download terminal emulator, which I had on there before Got to the $ prompt typed in SU Got "You do not have permission" when yesterday I would get the # prompt So it DID get rid of root. So my wi-fi tether will not work which I had to tether my Motorola Xoom to my 4G. So now I will try the rooting/remove bloatware again on my pc laptop (on my macbook pro and there are no drivers/programs for the mac) and see if I get root back again. I am not a newbie in the IT world so no smarta** remarks unless you have tried this route also please....but this is what has happened to me. If you think it's not so then if you have root, got the OTA just do a factory reset and see what happens...you'll loose root too I bet.
