    A rooted phone will update but a rommed phone will not. Make a clean backup and revert to that or wait until your rom dev updates their software

    Thus may be answered already but just want to make sure. I am currently running Chevy SSX with Black Glass. Does this men the ota will not go through? I like where I am at and do not want to be forced back to square 1.

    Don't install the ota. Easy.

    Another scenario...

    Rooted and deodexed. Few bloatware items renamed.

    No rom or theme installed....

    At 2.3.15 - was there when I got the phone.

    Something I should do for the update? Will it update?
