    Rooted 2.1, getting OTA update message. Unroot or just update?

    i've got a Dinc i rooted via the unrevoked method. i am now getting verizon's OTA update message. i don't want to brick my phone or have any other significant issues. should i unroot my phone before attempting to install the update? if so, what is the easiest way to do it? what would happen if i were to just attempt to install the OTA update? any help is greatly appreciated!

    Read the horror stories in this section (tech issues) and decide for yourself. Even if your have problems, you can always go back.

    thank you for the reply. people are having some issues, and i'm going to wait a while to see how this shakes out, but if i do upgrade, do i have to restore to unrooted status first, or can i just take the update?

    thanks. i've done a lot more reading, and i agree. however, as you pointed out, there are some potential issues with the upgrade. i think i going to hold off until these issues are ironed out. thanks again.

    I honestly would go with Unrevoked Forever before doing the official upgrade. At least that way you can come back to rooted if you don't like what you see. Honestly, I'm seeing less problems with the people that were rooted doing manual upgrades (or sticking with ROM's) than those that took the official. If you haven't tried it, I honestly would recommend giving Skyraider 2.5.2 a try for a good Froyo ROM. I think you might like it.

    I would unroot it, get the "factory" upgrade from system updates and re-root it.
