    No you shouldn't need to root again. But then again when I was rooted I never accepted a verizon update.

    However I am reading around that the update ruined root. And some users will have to root again. Check to see if you still have superuser permissions.

    I got prompted last night with an update. I tapped "Update" but when a window popped up describing that it will take 3-5 minutes for the update, I was gonna tap "install update" but my fat fingers accidentally pressed the "Home" button. Now I have no idea on how to update it. It wont prompt me anymore and when I go to settings, it says my system is up to date.

    Any ideas on how I can update it??!! Is this new update worth the trouble? thanks in advance people!

    Are your phones being updated without your permission?
    Like this guy said:

    How can I prevent updates?

    co-worker just got his auto update over lunch. Un-modded normal 855 model. When it came back up, his phone looked like it came right out of the box, completely stock, none of his prior data, even prompted him to re-activate the phone.

    some of his prior apps are slowly reappearing, but he is a little concerned that he's lost some data. Especially his Text message conversations are all gone.

    My 855 hasn't updated yet, now I'm kinda concerned about it.

    sorry wasn't reading carefully.

    I've never actually skipped an update when i was stock. Maybe verizon or pushes the update again the next day?

    I provided a link in the first page stating what was updated, if that's worth your trouble to find out how to get the update, that's your call.
