    If rooted and update OTA happens will we receive? EDIT See post #10

    Probably a noob question and maybe this has been answered before, but if I'm rooted and IF???? there is an OTA update will our rooted Fascinate be able to receive the update?
    This is of course a question based on if there really will ever be an update!
    I have a Dinc also and having the Froyo on that device make it truly missed on my Fascinate.
    Thanks in advance.

    EDIT - Please see my post on #10

    this is interesting. on my rooted Droid, it would block the install of OTA and would need a fix to stop the nags.

    fairly certain that rooting blocks OTA. I rooted my Fascinate and scanned for updates to get DI01 and it found nothing. If/ When 2.2 drops is released for the Fascinate you can simply go back to stock or wait for it to be rooted. Just flash DJ05 or DL09 for the time being

    Abe is right u will still receive the update the root will just be removed. If u root ur device and use an app to remove certain bloatware that came stocked on the phone that could cause u to not be able to ota because u may have removed some vital verizon files pertaining to the os otherwise ur safe to update. There r also some other things u may have to remove like one click lag fix in order to update but for the most part u shouldnt worry

    So I'm still confused but lets see what happens

    From the above posts I'm really not sure what to expect. January 10th is the new update supposedly! I'm really not holding my breath. I probably will not be looking at my device that day as "we (OREGON)" are playing Auburn in the BCS...GO DUCKS.
    I have to say with all the new devices that Sammy is putting to the market and if they just forget the "S" series updates then I'm done with anything Samsung.
    That's it, done even if their products shine there is a frustrations level that's...
    well you all know.

    U can also re enable ota updates... some roms have the script for them disabled to protect the rom and root. Use the emulator:

    Su <enter>
    Ota -e

    lg ally <rooted velocity 0.4>
    samsung fascinate <rooted>

    OTA from Verizon still in testing - may never happen???

    I wrote a fairly nasty letter to Verizon a few days ago and this is Verizon's response. I'll let you all draw your conclusions but I'm thinking this is not on Sammy's list of things to take care of after all the new devices at CES (not just phones either). We all may be stuck with a "new antique" with our Fascinates. If 2.2 does get the OTA I'll be thrilled but I'm thinking of switching phones and going to Sprint sooner rather than later.
