    Users who have rooted, but are not using SPRecovery should take extreme care, as this update contains a complete /system image, which means that it will not break the way the previous one did; it will simply erase /system and flash a complete image.

    as an FYI if you already have SPRecovery flashed, you can safely accept the update as you did with the ESE81 update.

    So, with clockwork or sprecovery you should be all set. Those with totally stock phones will be unable to use RSD lite to flash the current sbf file that replaces boot-recovery with sprecovery?

    If Google is going to insist on locking down this "open" OS, I may not be buying another Android phone.

    What difference does it make what color I am. We don't tolerate bigotry here in the DF wuyanks. :D

    That was a joke people. My humor has not been coming through lately.

    So back to Vulcan. Are you doing it yet?

    Okay so let me ask this so that I understand........ For the most part if we are already rooted and use ClockworkMod or SPRecovery we should be able to accept the update without a problem?? The problem will be for the ones that are not rooted as they will not be able to use RSD Lite to flash the sbf file, correct?????

    Sorry guys still new to this rooting stuff and after all the hard work to get here I don't want is screwed up.

    In all honesty, how could we possibly answer either one of those questions? We just found out about this thing about 45 minutes ago.

    it really depends. if persay this OTA is pushed unknowingly to a large portion of the rooted community, then there may be an effort to "re-root" it... however if only a select few people install it, then there may be no drive for the devs to find a new root exploit

    It is the phone manufacturers (Motorola, etc.) who lock things up, not Google.

    So, which unlocked, open source phone were you going to buy after boycotting Android?
