    I kept trying to avoid the ota but it eventually did it without permission...now i no longer have root. Do i start from scratch or is there a different method or file now? Thanks.

    if youre htcdev unlocked,and still unlocked,just:
    -relaunch recovery
    -reflash superuser for ICS(you did get both OTAs,correct? and are now on ICS?)

    to do those steps,follow steps 2 and 3 of in the OP of http://androidforums.com/rezound-al...ys-noob-friendly-root-guide-start-finish.html using this superuser: [16.07.2012] SuperSU v0.94 - xda-developers

    If anyone has not got the OTA yet and is rooted, voodoo root keeper worked for me. I kept root after the update.

    Just read in another thread that Verizon released a new update for the Rezound today. I'm currently *rooted* and looking to update to today's release.

    Will OTA RootKeeper allow me to do the OTA UPDATE (while currently rooted) then RESTORE to root???

    I'm a bit confused. Thanks.

    if you are still on this,you have another OTA coming. this is the "intermediate" build to get your phone ready for the actual ICS update,wich is considerably larger(about 300mb)

    Yes, its trying but I keep rejecting it.. From what I read most people are just experiencing glitches with ICS so I would just assume stay where I'm at.. (not big on change) I do have another question tho off topic.. I have searched and cant come up with anything. I switched to the rezound from incredible (rooted) I only root for wireless tether. On the rezound everything will connect and work fine just as on the incredible besides my wii. It will find the access point but then when it tries to connect it says it cannot find access point.. Code 51030 I have tried different tether software, rebooting both, uninstalling, installing.. you name it.. no go. Any ideas?

    i cant help you there. as a guide,im not supposed to discuss wireless tether,as it technically can be considered stealing a service from your provider. may want to search/ask in the forum for help with that. :)
