    This is quite fishy, I was surfing the net and caught an article highlighting that there was an update being pushed to the G2's, and half way through the article I got the pop-up informing me of the update.

    At first I thought it was a patch to kill root and bootloader bypass, but this would be a record turn around for Verizon for an update of any kind at all. Anyone download and keep root and exploit? Whats going on? :blink:

    From what i read it was an update to patch the exploit. And since vzw has been known for that might want to hold tight until developers get a chance to mess with it.

    Actually it's not, developers are claiming it's just a baseband update. I just got done scouring XDA's site and both root and TWRP is maintained after update, I'm installing the update now but I'm not rooted or anything yet. Aside from the ability to tether I'm really not missing root at all.

    Also my RAM usage has dropped about 10% according to the the Clear RAM widget that came with the phone. Interesting.

    I want to root just for tether. But the process still seems a bit sketchy lol.

    If I did it would be a stock ROM debloated, what's included is pretty much all you can ask for.
