    Just a quick question, when you are rooted, can you still update to newer firmwares/software(for example Froyo, if it gets released)? I read on another forum, if you root a phone, you can't update. Is this true? If I un-root the phone, can I get updates? I used Universal Androot, if it helps...

    If you've rooted the stock rom, you can apply ota updates, you will simply lose root access.

    If you've rooted your phone, applied a custom recovery and custom rom, the custom recovery will block ota updates from installing.

    Not sure, but here is how easy it actually is.

    Download the Universal Androot you click one butt on un root it, then update.

    Once finished just hit root, and voila it's updated and rooted.

    As far as I know though, you can update while rooted.

    Yes, unless you have a rom installed, removed stock apps, and/or have a custom recovery. custom recovery blocks it, removed stock apps will cause it to fail because lg uses a patching system instead of a find>replace system
     

  5. I believe this is right, but IF the update is ever released, i/we have to go all the way back to v6 to get ota updates back cus drell's stock v8 isnt really stock right? that is if i didnt make a backup of my stock rom.

    Sounds about right, but really, it's very easy to return to stock. Check out the forums here to see how. First thing I did when I rooted and flashed Velocity was to undo the process so I would know how when/if the time ever came that I would need to. Froyo may or may not be the reason. I've got a wait-and-see attitude about it. Wait until it's been out long enough to uncover all the stuff that doesn't work as expected and see if Verizon/LG fix them or not. :D

    Okay, I didn't install any roms, remove stock apps, and/or have a custom recovery. The only reason I rooted was to get Barnacle WiFi Tether. That can't screw anything up right?
