    Hi- Got my phone rooted with Unrevoked3. I have not applied -s off. I have not updated the radio, flashed ROM, or changed kernel- just running stock. I have installed some root only apps and removed City ID, Twitter, and Peep.

    So what should I do if the expected OTA update comes through?

    Can I apply the update on a rooted phone? I believe from what I have read that I would have to unroot and revert to stock in the box.

    Do I want to apply the update?

    If I apply the update with -s on will I permanently lose root? (I have too much faith in the droid community and xda-dev to really believe this would be more than a temporary problem)

    Thanks

    As far as I know there are no known updates any time soon. So you wont have to worry about this for a while.

    But in any case, the best thing to do is to wait a few weeks for your favorite rom developer to incorporate any OTA updates into their rom.

    I thought there was the Froyo update coming and it was rumored to come through on 8/18

    Anyway I'm probably being to worried about applying the s-off because it is permanent and voids the warranty. I've read that the OTA update might make rooting impossible. I certainly don't want to lose root permanently and maybe the Unrevoked team will add s- on eventually.
