    You will still recieve ota's but installing an ota is a different story. Usually you will just loose root, but if modifications were made to the bootloader you can soft brick.

    Its usually not recomended to accept an ota. A rooted image is usually available shortly after release, but the wait can be too much for some people.

    Being rooted without custom recovery is pretty dangerous. Need to have a working backup if you roll rooted and are flashing ROMs.

    But to answer your question, its not the recovery that is the issue. Its OTHER possible modifcations you have made with root access that causes instability when flashing an ota. Flashing stock recovery wont benefit you over CWM when ota is concerned.

    If changes are made to the bootloader is the biggest concern. A patch must be developed or the extent of the changes need to be figured out. Pushing stock images with fastboot is sure fire restore, but you may have to wait for images.

    Yeah no I have CWM installed and a backup already, just was concerned about OTAs. I'm thinking I'm not going to be running a bunch of custom ROMs on this phone like I did with my D1, so I'd like just stock OTAs, but I'll revisit that whenever any OTAs are pushed. Of course, I might change my mind and end up flashing ROMs all the time like I did with the D1 too haha

    Ive done all of the steps and everytime i try to boot into recovery using clockwork mod, it gives me the android on his back with the exclamation point.. If I go into clockwork, and reflash the recovery everytime before i reboot into recovery it works fine. anyone else have the same problem?

    Are you using ROM manager? at the top it says "flash ClockworkMod Recovery" select that, then cdma. Then the second line is "Reboot into Recovery". Does that work? Looks like these steps need to be followed each time you want into recovery. Not sure why the recovery isnt sticking.

    From the OP which works: 6. In Root Explorer go to System>recovery-from-boot.p (change to 1recovery-from-boot.p or delete)

    You have to rename the above file to prevent the stock recovery from reflashing after every reboot.

    That seems a bit more difficult. I'll just stick with ROM manager, just a couple clicks. But that answers why CWM is being overwritten on each boot.

    You have to do the above each time right? Or is that a one time thing? And CWM will boot everytime?

    The renaming is just a one time thing. If you ever need to go back to stock recovery, just rename it again to the original name and it will reflash upon reboot. I tested it and it does work.

    Awesome! Thanks for clearing that up for me. I miss understood op. Now I can boot into CWM without having to reflash it after every boot. I was scratching my head and appreciate you spoon feeding me :D

    In my defense I didnt use the superboot root method, so I never read that thread. I probably shouldnt be posting in here then huh? But I got my question answered.
