    If you've rooted your Desire and an OTA update comes and you update-


    ...what happens :/

    Do your root changes get over-written?

    What if you're on a different ROM- where does the OTA update to in your phone...and what affect will it have?

    I'm not sure what will happen if you have a generic rom (rooted) with OTA, but from what I understand, if you have a custom rom, you won't be able to download or install the OTA updates.

    On a custom ROM it generally just won't work. On a stock ROM it will remove your root but you should then be able to do it again.
