    Just got a message from the wife. Her TB is downloading an update today, as I post this thread topic actually. Does anyone know what this update contains, and what effect it will have on root? I told her if she has the option NOT to install the update until I can get some info.

    Thanks

    Well usually all updates affect root. So if you accept it, you might have to reroot.

    Noticed an app associations selection to quickly set app defaults under settings->applications. Don't know if that came with this update but new to me.

    It's generally not a good idea to accept an OTA if you're rooted.

    Uh guys... not to be a debby downer here, but this OTA is having some weird effects on my root. I am running clockwork mod, and stock HTC sense. The OTA rolled through this morning. But it didn't start to instal until I plugged it in to a charger it seems. The the phone powered down. Then it powered up showing the software installation screen. Then the boot screen came on. And that is where it stayed. Taking out the battery will restart the device for about 3 seconds before the request to turn GPS comes on. The minute you see that screen the device powers down and the loop starts up again. I still have clockwork, and it looks like I can go revert to a backup. But I am afraid this won't fix the issue. Any ideas? If I did keep my root, what can I do to disable OTA's so this doesn't happen again?

    *update* went ahead and restored an earlier backup. Everything was up and running fine. I kept root. Then, just out of curiosity, I manually pushed the OTA. (it is OTA .19) ( I was going from .9) The same result occurred with my phone being stuck on the boot screen. If this is happening to you: YOU DONT HAVE TO RESTORE. JUST CLEAR YOUR CACHE IN RECOVERY. My question now is, what can I do to disable all automatic OTA updates from now on? OH... AND WHERE IS MY FULLY FUNCTIONAL ICS FOR THUNDERBOLT!?!
