    I thought the people who rooted without installing the OTA could no longer receive/download the OTA? Why would the next OTA be any different?

    I see a lot of people jumping on this "one way" root process. Hopefully they find a way back before rooted Froyo leaks.

    The way they rooted they said could work on any device, so I bet they could root again in the same way after the update. Just wait till they do to be safe.

    I thought after rooting people could no longer receive the current OTA?

    That is only if you have a custom recovery or a special aspect built into the rom your running, which I don't know if the x has a custom recovery or not...

    Let me try again ... lol

    People that did not yet do the OTA, and then rooted, are now unable to do the current 604 OTA.
    Is this not correct? I've read people say that, and I've not read otherwise. Did I miss something?

    It has been my observation that those who were affected by that OTA failing had renamed some of the default apps / or removed them.

    Once they re-named them to be seen, etc. the update went through.

    The fact that they received the update should be enough for all of you to see that just applying root will not stop the OTA, D1, X or otherwise. (But that was said already).

    That makes sense. I knew that renaming system apps (or certain ones) will cause updates to fail.

    I had thought just the root process itself did something that caused the OTA to fail.
