    I rooted my razor and did data hack for hotspot and installed titanium pro along with an ad blocker. I didn't remove any apps or software and i didn't freeze anything. Will my razor still take the update or would i still have to remove root?

    If I understand correctly, the ota checks your system folder for changes. If you did not debloat, you should receive the ota with no problems

    I was rooted with my pro when an ota update didn't hurt me (did unroot me though). I only rooted for tethering and didnt mod anything.

    Great I de-bloated. OCD's a killer. So what's the process going to be like for those of us that did clean up the phones?

    Basically that's all did as well. I can live with the bloatware. Just wanted tethering and a ad blocker

    I also rooted, uninstalled Bloat that was allowed froze rest; if you did the same and "bloat" removal poses an issue for receiving OTA's- defrosting the bloat is simple and would solve that issue.

    I'm still wondering if anyone believes there will be a process for people like me that de-bloated. I assume someone will have images.

    I had also never heard of freezing apps. I'll have to look up what that is.

    How did you "debloat" freezing is using Titanium backup (which requires root) or something similar to freeze an app it is then like it's not even on the device, once thawed it's back.

    I used Titanium Backup Pro to uninstall the apps. Now I see Freeze there but wasn't sure what that did. Is it possible to simply put back the missing APK's and then freeze them? I'd need to find a list of all APK's and compare. Mainly removed was Madden, the Golf game and a few others. Nothing major.

    Removing any of the uninstallable apps (like the games) should be fine. The ota issue usually stems from removal of unwanted system apps (like all the Verizon stuff). It's always good to backup everything before you do anything to anything. You'll probably be able to find the apk's you need either here or on xda or rootzwiki. Or, worst case, a factory data reset from the os may work as well.

    I didn't think a factory reset would restore missing system files. Does that really work?

    Well I guess I better get a list then as the only Verizon item I have is the My Verizon app. I definitely removed VZ Navigator and I think something else.

    Don't know, but I saw it suggested on another forum when I had a Droid x2.

    Factory data reset will not do the trick. Basically all a reset does is remove anything you added to the phone (account info, installed apps, etc) but it will not reinstall anything you removed from the stock.

    SBF is the android software for our phone that you download to a computer and use a program like rsd lite to flash back to...good for getting your phone back to stock from root.

    Yes if you can install them do that, otherwise give me the apks you need, sounds like you've removed stuff that Motorola let's us uninstall anyway, so I'd bet your fine for a OTA otherwise worry about it then possibly well have an account sbf by then
