    On my old Moto Droid, I know that some of the Custom ROMs made it so the phone would not receive the OTA's,
    If I root my Inc. (but dont load a ROM), will I still be able to get the OTA when it comes out (I assume I will lose my root)?
    I only want root to access wifi tethering.... if the 2.2 update still has the tethering then I would like to update to it, if VZ removes it then I plan on loading custom ROMs...

    thanx

    Yes you will OTA updates, yes you will probably lose root (for good, if they plug the hole).
