    In case VZW eventually rolls JB out to the Bionic AND FoxFi doesn't support that combination, is there a way to prevent the upgrade?

    If it is done the way it was in the past (curious you ask a question about how something works that doesn't exist yet) ... it will download the gigantic patch to your Bionic and ask permission to install it.

    If you are un-root-ed simply don't grant permission every time you are prompted.

    The root exploit for JB on the unified Moto builds only works for now - it can be easily broken. Until it goes OTA we cannot know for sure that it will work.
