    People are saying that updates are happening automatically? How can this be prevented?

    Do you have a custom recovery installed (SPRecovery or Clockwork Mod)? If so, if you get prompted to run the update, run it and it will fail because the custom recovery will block it.

    It's impossible for an OTA from verizon/google to work unless you have stock recovery. If you have SPR or CW and accept the OTA, it WILL be blocked.

    And it's not automatic, you need to accept it.

    If you don't root via link 3 in my sig, then on every reboot your custom recovery will be overwritten by the stock one.

    This is why we don't endorse one click root apps. Link 3 in my sig. The only way to root a d1

    So what's the big deal? You accept the update, lose root and root again?

    That makes sense. Now awnser this for me please. When root broke I still have the such icon but no root. I also the rest of my root apps. I will have to root the right way now. So is this going to hurt anything
