    Any chance you saved the original downloaded files? Otherwise I doubt it

    For those that are still holding out, one very positive thing I've noticed since upgrading to 5.1 is the improved Wi-Fi speed I get now. Speedtests were only running about 7-10Mbps DL on KitKat. Now I get around 17-20Mbps on my 20Mbps service.

    Not to mention the seamless handoff between WiFi and cellular.

    Ingress. YouTube.
    On KK, when I leave WiFi range, anything would timeout. Then it would slowly grab 3g. Take 30 seconds to a minute before 4g would lock.
    Now it goes right from WiFi to 4g.

    Maybe someone HERE will help me...

    Running a mofo rooted 4.4 Turbo, and over the last two weeks Verizon has been relentlessly trying to make me take the update, which I have avoided downloading, until last night. I wake up this morning to find they finally got over on me, and the update has been downloaded... but NOT installed... yet.

    I LOVE the way my phone is now, as I have tethering which is the only reason I care to have root. I have read that by taking the update I will lose root, and I have also read a few threads claiming that I can retain root ONLY if I have 4.4 rooted, and then flashing to 5.1, which I have. The problem is, I have found little information proving this is true, or proven 5.1 flash files with tether.

    Can someone guide me? Please? I need to either stop this OTA install (preferably delete the downloaded files which I cannot find) or go ahead and update to 5.1 and maintain root. Again, while I do not mind the upgrade, but have yet to find a trustworthy tether enabled 5.1 flash. While I did manage to root 4.4 using mofo, I am not the most knowledgeable on this kind of stuff, and simply want my tethering abilities. I wish they would just leave my phone and I alone, lol.
    Any help would be greatly appreciated, as I am sure that any time now the phone is going to install this stupid update they have now forced me to download.
