    What will happen if I instal the most current over the air update on top of apex? Will I loose root? Is it possible to root the current droid x software (I think 2.3)? And 1 more question. If I press the factory reset button (somewhere in the settings) will that reset me to un rooted 2.2 ,rooted 2.2,or apex? Sorry if some of this stuff is already on the forum but I need to know and the internet is really slow here(I'm on vacation )


    Thankssssss

    you will go back to a factory like state you can reroot with z4root. Start all over again thats a good thing. Factory reset button won't un-root you.A VZW update will but it no big deal .
    Things are suppose to be slow on vacation...lol

    O don't believe the update will succeed over the top of a custom Rom. You'll likely have to restore a stock backup. Also before you accept the update you may want to unroot because letting the update do the unroting for you may give you problems rerooting down the road.

    The OTA won't install over apex or any custom rom. All bloat has to be intact. You will have to restore nandroid of stock or sbf.

    Agreed. Also most roms block the instillation of ota updates.

    Very true..
    Thanks for the Linux sbf tutorial that pro tip was what I was missing.
    I'll have to SBF just for the fun of it soon.
