    Yeah, as long as your not rooted you'll be able to update.

    You would actually still be able to update if you were rooted, so long as all of the bloatware is present and you're not running a custom Rom.

    I'm not entirely sure about that. I am rooted and using a ROM. I can still search for new updates, but I've never downloaded and installed one. I do know that if you were to update you would have to root again to use some of your apps. Also ROMs make no difference, they're basically just themes for the phone. Same as the bloatware, an update wouldn't notice if it were there or not, I'm thinking that it would reinstall all of the apps that you had removed.

    If bloatware is missing or you are on a custom rom, the update will not work. Trust me, I've been through it with the 2.3.2 update.

    That's not entirely true about the roms.... most basically redoes your OS in order to get better battery and they also don't have any of the bloatware.

    I also agree, you need all the bloatware and you have to be on the stock ROM.
