VZW update coming through now
so the VZW update is coming through now, it downloaded but i deferred it, i want to know if its gonna be an issue at all that i'm rooted and have the lag fix and some of the original embedded .apk files changed to .apk.old so they don't show up.
anyone able to clear that up for me before i allow it to go through?
side note ... will this contain that promised GPS fix from Samsung ? I'm searching other threads for this info now but i figured i'd ask while i'm posting

You should be able to update just fine, but it will break your root so you will have to reroot once the update is finished. But you shouldn't hit any problems (at least I didn't)
Thank you for the quick reply

This update will remove root but it is easy to re-root. Just search the forums, all the info is here.

Not sure... but, this update did not remove "root" from my phone... the apps that rely on root access are still functioning just fine after the update...
I confirmed too that my Firmware version shows to be : 2.1-update1
so, it would appear that my update worked just fine without any need to re-root..

Kernel version : 2.6.29
Build Number : SCH-I500.DI01
I believe the new update is DI01, correct? So, definitely appears that mine is updated.. and still able to do root-able things.. ...
and, I never renamed the .old files.. left them as they were in /system/app.

something went wrong with my update ... i'm in a force close loop now *sigh*
i've tried the odin route once so far ... ends up back in a force close loop ... my guess is this has something to do with the damn lag fix but i cannot access the settings menu to get it back into debug to try and take out the lag fix and then redo everything
am i screwed ? any suggestions?

I'm wondering if it only affects the ones who installed the lag fix manually versus the app in the market... I used the lag fix via the app and haven't had any issues with the OTA update. I haven't tried to remove the lag fix yet though, because of everything I have read since the update
yeah i called up VZW and got my phone swapped out today, pain in the *** but oh well, did the ota update in store so i wouldn't have any issues to deal with.
i have to think twice about doing the lag fix again ... caint wait till we get a rom for this thing
