will i receive the OTA if i have a rooted phone?
I am fairly certain all of the rooted ROMS have a built in feature to block OTA updates.
If you want to receive an OTA update, you will have to remove any custom ROM and unroot your phone.
i did read that rooted phones don't receive the OTA updates.
If i were you, i'd unroot once i hear of the first person here who got it.
Depends how you rooted as to if OTA is blocked.
I unrooted. If you are rooted you probably will. Not receive the update.
I manually updated last time anyway, won't kill me to do it again. I'm still rooted, won't be getting my OTA
I don't think that stament is intierly true.
It all depends on how you look at it. With the speed and intensity that some of the devs are pushing out updates to their roms (sholes) i don't reall see the need to unroot and get the OTA 2.1.
I will simply wait untill they have updated their ROM to be running on the 2.1 shell.
I don't want to give up OC, WiFi teethering, MT, and, i like prefer the old slider!
If I'm not mistaken it's the ROM you run that blocks the update. I rooted my GF's phone so I could use Terminal Emulator to install a bootanimation, but she didn't want a different ROM. So she should still get the OTA update. I, on the other hand, am running Sholes ROM from their SMUpdater. So I will have to manually install an update when I decide I want it. If I'm wrong, please set me straight.
so you won't even get a notification telling you there is an update available?
I am appending my earlier statement where I said not only did the ROM block OTA, but you had to un-root.
I've read in many, many ROM notes that they block OTA updates, so I assumed rooting did also, but I've read in several threads it's only the ROMs that are blocking the updates, not the rooting.
Do I know this for a 100%? No, I'm not a dev, but I am going to trust this information.
I read in another thread that if you are only rooted, you will get the notification just like an unrooted phone, but from what I understand if you are running a custom ROM it will block the notification altogether.
I've not seen this in person, so I can't say for certain, but this seems to be the general consensus.
