    See the thread below. What you need to do though is only download Voodoo OTA Rootkeeper from the Market (free) and after following those steps for Voodooo accept the update

    Thanks I just un-rooted to accept the update ( also defrosted everything ) and went smooth. I was wondering about just Re-rooting again. Now I have my answer. Off topic a bit ..... but has there been any mention of a SBF file coming out any time soon? I just keep waiting to brick this thing jacking around with it.
    Razr.....Rooted and bloatware is frozen. Safestrapped and ready to rock!

    I was rooted (zedomax method) I had frozen a few apps with TB. After finding out there was an OTA update I was very nervous to download the update, but finally bit the bullet. First thing I did was defrosted all the apps that I had frozen with titanium backup. I then installed the OTA update. That went fine. I then tried to run wireless tether to see if I still had root, but unfortunately I did not have root access. I then simply ran the root method (zedomax) again and am now rooted and typing this post from laptop using wifi tether. I did NOT unroot before re-rooting. Hope this helps anyone still waiting to intall the OTA. No, I haven't noticed any noticeable change after the update, but I haven't really been looking for any changes yet anyway

    My OTA failed twice. I'm rooted with a bunch of apps frozen using Bloat Freezer. First thing I did was to use Voodoo OTA RootKeeper (free from Android Market). I 'Protected Root' then 'temp. unroot' 'ed my phone. Next, I defrosted all of the apps I had frozen via Bloat Freezer. The OTA update worked. I re-established root using Voodoo, then re-froze all my apps. Success. The only think I can think of that would kill my update is that they renamed two of the processes that I had frozen, 'Gallery' is now 'My Gallery' and 'Files' is now 'My Files' I don't have any kind of bootstrap or recovery installed as I want to wait until there is some kind of SBF available to us. Hope this helps.
