    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.

    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?
