Yeppers, did all that... I erase it with History cleaner, do a factory reset, and oh look like nothing ever happened, its all back, intact and perfect. Also, Verizon tech confirmed that OTAs are now forced. He actually complained to Verizon about it. You can *postpone* it 3 times, then after that, it will install at next opportunity without user intervention which is what happened to me. Hope you aren't doing anything critical with the phone lol. Also, he stated that there is a confirmed OTA to fix these problems on the X2 and Razr that was just rolled out so we shall see. He said it fixed his phone so as soon as that happens its root and ROM lock for me, no more OTAs. root files needs to exploit the factory reset routine and a momentary switch on the system files from read only to read/write to allow the root routine to be able to replace certain key files to unlock the phone. Well, its looking like the factory reset no longer does that, and really doesn't reset or do anything. If the factory reset doesn't switch the file system to R/W, then the routine can't erase the cache, or anything else. This is what it looks like is happening. Its as if on my phone, the factory reset doesn't do anything but reboot the phone and has been totally disabled and unable to switch the files to R/W. Without that capability, the phone can't be erased. Also just FYI the latest little OTA that caused this problem is meant to disable flash support.. Just so you know.. And whatever they did causes browsers to crash, all of them, including Dolphin, stock, firefox, etc..
