I am just wondering about the proper procedure(s) to follow in order to receive the OTA after flashing my phone to Rubix 1.8.6.
I am currently running 2.3.20. My wife's unrooted stock phone got the OTA update today with no issues to 2.3.340, so I know its finally available here.
I also am running rubiX Focused 1.8.6 along with z4root/clockwork/titanium. I have installed the SDK Manager on the PC but would prefer not to use it if there is a '1-step' method available.
I used this forum to get the info on modding, and since I have NOT ever gone through the process of returning my phone to stock settings, I was hoping you could offer me some advice.
I just used ROM Manager (Clockwork) to make a backup of my current (rubiX) settings.
When I made my original backup of my stock settings I did NOT modify any files, had added a few apps from the app market, but the phone was in a rooted state using z4root.
What do I need to do next to accomplish the following:
1. Successfully receive and install the OTA.
2. Locate and flash the most recent (and compatible) version of rubiX. I have seen people mention 1.9.x but cannot seem to find it. Are there different versions that I need to be careful to avoid, etc?
3. Also, I would assume that upon successful completion of the OTA, I would need to make an immediate Nandroid backup (while still in stock) using z4root+Clockwork in order to be prepared for the next OTA down the line, and THEN flash to the proper rubiX iteration?
4. A final noob question, will I need to flash back to the rubiX 1.8.6 prior to flashing a newer version of rubiX if I want my apps/settings to be restored properly?
Thanks in advance, you guys are all great!
