    just got the update notice, I'm guessing if we have root we shouldn't do this update, right?

    I'm actually surprised you got a notification at all if you are rooted--unless you've never flashed a custom ROM...?. Most custom ROMs have the otacerts.zip file renamed so that they won't get the update notification...

    If you are rooted, you typically do not want to receive such an update for fear that it will unroot you (this depends on the type of update you migth receive, of course, but its best to let the devs / ROM developers re-cook their custom ROMs with the new fixes inside them).

    I will be curious for someone to pull the update.zip file apart to see exactly what it is changing.
     
  4. Which ROM are you running?

    I've got the plainjane rom right now, probably going to try another rom in a few days though. I was surprised when the update popped up.

    Well I tried applying the update with plainjane and it failed. But the newest plainjane already has the update in it and I was going to install that anyways. Hopefully my signal gets better with this update.

    The newest plain jane already has this month's update? Can you give me a link to the version of plain jane that has it? Specifically the software version that starts with 2.37 not 2.36.

    Ok if I'm reading this correct. Lets say I root today and leave the phone stock but only root. I should still get the update OTA and when applied it will unroot my phone in turn I will have to root again but I shouldn't have any issues doing it? Is this correct?
    I plan on rooting but I want to make sure I will be able to patch and either keep my root or be able to do it again with no issues. If I didn't have issues I would have been rooted a few days ago.

    FWIW, the Baseband stayed the same when I rooted, as that's the same baseband that I have now after the update then rooting.

    Great! so you successfully rooted with you being on the leak and installing the OTA?

    Yup, no trouble whatsoever, once I figured out how to do it! The OTA didn't make any difference at all.
