When playing about with ROMS, LEAKS and such, I understand it is possible to take yourself out of the official OTA UPGRADE path; however I'm not really clear on what it takes to actually stray from the UPGRADE path. Assuming ODEXED and BLOATED, does one take themselves off the path when the KERNEL, RADIO and SYSTEM versions differ? What if they match? Would one still be able to receive UPGRADES via the official OTA process? Example Assumptions ...
OK for official OTA upgrades??
886 Kernel / 886 Radios / 886 system
89X Kernel / 89X Radios / 89X System
Not OK for official OTA upgrades??
886 Kernel / 886 Radios / 89X System (or based ROM)
89X Kernel / 89X Radios / 886 system (or based ROM)
If I am correct, then I could apply the Cheesecake downloaded updates (or any leaked) and still be on the official UPGRADE path as long as Kernel / Radios and System match when Verizon releases the official OTA update assuming its REV numbers are higher?? I can also use any ROM whose System is based on version matches the Kernel and Radio installed -- assuming ODEXED and BLOATED w/ no Frozen apps)??
I'd really like clarification to make sure I don't do anything stupid that would take me out of the official upgrade path.
