    My phone was previously rooted manually. I restored Bloat, and was able to install the update successfully. Tried using Z4Root to root the phone, and it will not work. Even did a factory reset and tried again and it will still not work. Anyone got any advice or tips?

    I had the same issue. It worked but only a little... I could install Rooted apps, and they said my phone was rooted but none of the permissions came up through SuperUser and none of the root programs actually worked. So I unrooted using Z4Root, then tried rooting again and same thing. So I did a hard reset, then tried rooting again same thing. Right now I'm wiping with SBF, then will reinstall the Update. Then will try Z4Root one last time before i give up on Z4root until an update comes out or something...

    I had to use the 2.3.20 sbf after applying the OTA in order to be able to re-root. Everything I tried to gain root after applying the OTA 'seemed' to work, but didn't actually give me root. But, after using the sbf, all was good again.

    It worked perfect this time! After flashing the newest SBF, then running it. No problems after that. Just glad I got it to finally work so I could have my root only apps back..
