    If i get the ota update and don't install can I still root with unrevolt3 on osx? I'm gonna do it tonight just wondering if it'll still work. Thanks.

    The phone will ask you if you want to install the update, just click NO, then you can Root, and wait for a developer to make the new OTA update root friendly.
