    Have have successfully Rooted and have DC 2.09.1 running well on my phone. Do I need to worry about Sprint sending me an OTA update and installing it without my permission? I have updated my User Profile and PRL but in the back of my mind I'm wondering if I may be opening the door to Sprint to install their junk.

    Thanks for the information............

    you shouldn't have to worry about it.

    I don't think they ever (or even can) send automatic updates. I believe you have to actually select the update to do it, or at the very least it asks you if you want to update, in which case you'd select no.

    That's all it did for me, just asked if I wanted to install the update. I said no, and it hasn't bothered me since. :)
