    Hello. This seems like a straightforward question, but I've not maanged to figure it out: I am assuming that if I update from 4.2.1 to 4.2.2 then I'll need to unlock and root my 7 again.

    Is this true? Thanks.

    Yes on root, that is normally a given.

    Unlocking the bootloader probably not unless you locked it back up prior to updating assuming you were previously unlocked & rooted.

    FWIW, methods used previously to unlock & root should still remain the same with the new update .

    Use OTA Rootkeeper to backup your root before applying the update...

    I used OTA Rootkeeper and it saved my root no problem! Great app.

    When I updated I lost my root access so do I just need to root my device the same as I did last time to get my root access back
