    If I have a restore point from Rom Manager on my phone from right after I rooted will restoring to that point make me ready for the OTA Gingerbread update?

    hey, stig, would it just be best for me to wait until the devs figure out a stock OTA rooted? or just go ahead and grab this update?

    and could this mean cyanogenmod and miui could see HD recording?

    Thanks a lot PvilleComp! I'm going to take the ota because when I was rooted I only took screenshots and never flashed any roms.

    It may - it may not. To be safe I would highly recommend un-rooting, or wait a day or so for a rooted Stock to come out. As soon as we grab an OTA link I'll root the stock load and post it in the Forum.

    A reminder to everyone - if you accept the OTA you will lose root and it may be quite a while before a new root method is found, if it ever is. If you want to keep root - Don't accept the OTA.

    Yes.

    I updated the OP for rooted users with the folowing Tip.

    [TIP]To disable the OTA Notification Nag:
    Use Root Explorer or another root compatible file explorer and rename /system/etc/security/otacerts.zip. to /system/etc/security/otacerts.zip.bak.
    [/TIP]

    Thank you.

    Yes - you can stay S-OFF and still take the OTA as long as you are on the Stock ROM. When the EVO got their update S-OFF was not a factor, and the phones/software are very similar.

    Thanks Stig.

    I am rooted for 3 reasons:
    Screen capture
    Bloatware
    Titanium Backup.

    What would I gain from Gingerbread?
    Not much I would imagine.
    I don't use custom roms and use Go launcher so I don't care about sense.

    Thoughts anyone?

    There are a TON of back end improvements in GB in general, battery battery is just one reason as well as bunch of security fixes. MMS fixes are also supposed to be there as well.

    Wait for the Rooted OTA. As soon as we get a URL, I'm going to try rooting it and post it in the Forum. I was able to root the leak so it should work. The only thing you would be missing is the updated Radio and that should also be out shortly after the URL gets captured. I would do the update, even though it means re-de-bloating (is that a word?) it should be worth it.

    From what I understand you can do this before and you won't get nagged.

    so I should unroot tonight.....etc.
    I never put custom roms on.
    I just want bloatware and backup using titanium as an option.
    And of course this gets announced after I buy Juice Defender.....

    So basically I would have a backup of my device, using titanium that WOULD NOT be able to restore data after the device is rooted again?

    I am a simple root guy....

    Thanks for this information, Stig (and other contributors).

    I am running stock froyo (went back to it from CM6). Unrooted, etc.

    I have yet to receive the OTA notice, and when I check for updates, my dinc still doesn't get notified. My understanding is the official 2.3 OTA was already out. Am I missing a step?

    Thanks

    Nope - it's just rolling out slowly. You should get the notification shortly. No one has captured the URL yet.

    Thanks Stig. Is there any way to get the OTA sooner (other than flashing the earlier pulled OTA), or do I just wait (im)patiently?

    Thanks for the instructions. FYI. AppBrain failed me after doing a factory reset. It did not recognize the phone as the same. It created a new phone in my account, so it didn't provide the easy download/update process it is designed to do. However, I did have the list of apps from the "old" phone there so I just downloaded them the old fashioned way. BTW, it is nice every now and then to be forced purge old apps you don't use, especially as you approach your storage limits like I was with the new OS update.

    Thanks again for the detailed instructions.

    Sorry for the n00b question, but I am currently rooted and running stock with the latest CWM Recovery. Suppose I install the stock recovery as well, and let the phone update. Suppose I don't care about losing root today.

    1- Will anything bad happen to my phone?
    2- Even if I lose root, will I lose S-OFF?

    Thanks!

    Your file manager should have a R/W setting on it that will allow you to modify the file. Different File manager's have it in different places. For example Root Explorer has a Mount R/W button right on the top of the screen.

    If you want to unroot and use the Stock OTA you should follow the instructions here:
    [GUIDE] Preparing your HTC Droid Incredible for the Gingerbread OTA

    This will give you the Stock HBOOT and Stock Recovery as well as unrooted Stock Froyo. Then you can go get the GB OTA.

    Hope this helps both of you.
