    All,

    So I have a Razr MAXX that was up to date (as of last week) and rooted, with several of Verizon's OEM apps frozen with Titanium Backup.

    So in order to get the OTA, I should:

    1. Unfreeze all the frozen apps.
    2. Run Voodoo OTA Rootkeeper and make a backup of my root (that is, su). I ASSUME THERE IS NO NEED TO UNROOT; TRUE?
    3. Download and install the latest OTA update.
    4. See if I still have root, and if not then restore root with Voodoo OTA Rootkeeper.
    5. Re-freeze any of those silly Verizon apps I don't use.

    Does this seem about right?

    Thanks,
    Warr

    After you back up root, then you unroot with voodoo. After you install update, then restore root through voodoo

    I knew I should have checked here before updating...I didn't realize I had to unroot, so I lost root.

    I can't even install the OTA. It just tells me it fails. I think it's because I uninstalled some bloatware (I froze many others and unfroze them, but some stuff I just uninstalled... mistake I guess)

    Any way to recover from that so I can update?

    Use Matt's Razr Utility to get back to .173. Update to .181 OTA and then use Matt's Utility to root .181...it works.
