    I have read the post about the security feature that ICS has built in to test for root and had a quick question.

    The question is if I root my Bionic (on ICS OTA never been rooted) Know will the security in ICS block me from gettting the OTA Jellybean OS update? or is it more for Motorolla to check warranty returns?

    The root checker has always been built into Motorola phones, it just didn't show up on the recovery screen until ICS. So no it won't block any updates.

    What's odd is that the root checker on my work phone, which has never been rooted (at least not by me!), says it's currently rooted. I don't think it's all that accurate.

    ICS OTA doesn't really check for root per say... However it will fail to load if it detects changes in certain bloatware files and system files... Things people do after they root... that's what tends to be the real trouble... So when Jelly Bean rolls out it will likely be similar...
