    Default Root 1.4, then update?

    So I've been looking and haven't found a straight answer.

    I'm getting a replacement 3D tomorrow and I'm hoping it doesn't have 1.5 on it so I can root. My question is if I root it with 1.3 or 1.4, can I install the updates and still be rooted?

    No, you should not take updates once rooted. You will have issues and possibly loose root. Are you planning to flash a custom rom? If so, then the rom developer updates the rom shortly after an update hits - usually.

    Not sure yet if I'm going to flash a custom rom. I flashed a few on my Evo4G, but I'm pretty happy with the 3D stock.

    cleanrom is really nice and simple, nothing stupid and a few more features than the regular htc one (noticeably when holding down the power/lock button)
