    I was wondering if someone could send me a link to root my phone. Using bionic with all ota updates installed. I want bloat freezer installed also. The root I found doesn't work on my phone.

    You have to extract the files from the zip folder. I used my desktop. Then run the program from the extracted folder. Also ensure that debugging is selected.

    I use antTek and it does a good job of freezing bloat. It is free. Most users use Titanium Backup.

    Being rooted wont affect updates.
    Frozen or deleted bloat will affect updates. When an update is released, just unfreeze your bloat and take the update.

    As long as I've been rooting and flashing and overclockng etc, this has always confused me a little bit. So to be clear, if I root my bionic, I was still get the 904 update OTA? It would only be affected if I screwed with the bloatware or flashed a rom? I've always felt like after rooting, I wont get the ota updates properly

    I would recommend that anytime you are flashing custom ROMs or changing anything on the device, that you make a backup of your stock ROM first. Or know how to get back to stock completely.
    Just being rooted in general won't affect an OTA.
    For the 904 leak, most people are having to be almost completely stock to get it to flash. But being rooted has not affected anyone.
