    will a slightly rooted razor take the ota update when it comes?

    I rooted my razor and did data hack for hotspot and installed titanium pro along with an ad blocker. I didn't remove any apps or software and i didn't freeze anything. Will my razor still take the update or would i still have to remove root?

    I think your OK...but a good thing to keep in mind is. Root is awesome but an sbf file is the first thing to have before hand...Just Incas something arises..peace!

    If I understand correctly, the ota checks your system folder for changes. If you did not debloat, you should receive the ota with no problems

    I was rooted with my pro when an ota update didn't hurt me (did unroot me though). I only rooted for tethering and didnt mod anything.

    Great I de-bloated. OCD's a killer. So what's the process going to be like for those of us that did clean up the phones?

    Basically that's all did as well. I can live with the bloatware. Just wanted tethering and a ad blocker

    I also rooted, uninstalled Bloat that was allowed froze rest; if you did the same and "bloat" removal poses an issue for receiving OTA's- defrosting the bloat is simple and would solve that issue.

    I'm still wondering if anyone believes there will be a process for people like me that de-bloated. I assume someone will have images.

    I had also never heard of freezing apps. I'll have to look up what that is.

    How did you "debloat" freezing is using Titanium backup (which requires root) or something similar to freeze an app it is then like it's not even on the device, once thawed it's back.

    I used Titanium Backup Pro to uninstall the apps. Now I see Freeze there but wasn't sure what that did. Is it possible to simply put back the missing APK's and then freeze them? I'd need to find a list of all APK's and compare. Mainly removed was Madden, the Golf game and a few others. Nothing major.
