    OTA update & root

    I am currently on Android 4.1.1 rooted stock and I am getting the "update available" message every minute or so. Very annoying. If I use ota root keeper, is it safe to update using temporary unroot method?

    Final Update: OTA rootkeeper worked fine, just make sure you select the temporary unroot before you update. I am now on rooted 4.2.2.

    Still lost everything after January. And now, with 4.2.2 there seems to be a usb tethering restriction built in now, I have a post regarding that too.

    Used root keeper and said it was rooted. Now, when I checked to see if I had root. I no longer have a rooted phone. Does anyone know if Wugs works with 4.2.2?

    Ota root keeper worked great for me, did you reopen and reapply root?

    Yes, made a back up before the update. Opened root keeper and installed back up. Verified with root checker and it worked. Now, I tried the WiFi app which requires root and it wasn't working. Decided to check root and it says my phone is not rooted. Idk how that would happen. -_-
