    I have rooted my phone just to delete some of the sprint crap apps. Now my question is since I did not flash a custom ROM on to my device will I be able to update the phone when Sprint releases the OTA Update or will I have to use the RUU_Hero_C_Sprint_1.56.651.2_signed_release.exe to put my phone back to factory stock. (Also can I just do a hard reset to accomplish the same thing).

    The Apps I removed:
    Sprint Nascar
    Amazon Mp3

  2. There's a more than likley chance that the coming update will be released as a download (think RUU), rather than OTA. Not to mention the tax it would put on their servers should they opt for OTA.

    Simply speaking, you should be just fine. :)

    Doing an OTA update will lose your root. There will be a rooted offical ROM you can load when its out.
