1. You want that $100.00 in your pocket or an Amazon Fire TV don't you? Well here's the deal. With our new updated look we are in desperate need of an updated logo. The 'old' one has certainly served us well, but it's time. Find all the details here: bit.ly/1q0k6Wa

    I did some research on this forum as well as others, and I am getting mixed answers. I am not running a custom rom, but I am rooted, (for the purpose of backing up paid apps, and clocking, etc). My question is: Will I get the new update, and be able to pull it with the root and stock rom? Or will I need to go and unroot my phone like before?

    Thanks for your help

    edit: thanks I found this answer 5 min after I posted this! Thanks guys!

    You will get the new update, rooting does not prevent you from getting the OTA update. I rooted my phone, only for the purpose of Wireless Tethering and screen shots, I left everything else untouched. My phone didn't alert me to an update, all I had to do was hit settings, about phone, and i clicked update and it said there was one available. I downloaded it and installed it with zero problems whatsoever.

    Keep in mind though, the OTA update will remove your root access. Just re root it later.
