    Hey Everyone,

    I am rooted with the 651.6 Stock rom and Nets 4.0.3 kernal. I keep getting a notice of an update over the air (System upgrade 3.29.651.5(22.92mb)FOTA), and keep declining it. what would happen if I accept and would I lose root?

    Thanks Chris.

    It will most likely fail and then it will stop notifying you.
    If it goes through just root again.

    I would say to not accept ota updates, you may fall victim of the half root, it happens to few people but it does happen

    Smartest thing will be to decline if you don't wanna b a victim like Wake said,if you are one of them people that want to keep their phones up to date with the latest software releases just flash a ROM based on that OTA.

    Thanks everyone I will avoid this update, but one funny thing is that my phone says it has a newer Rom 651.6
