    Just because you're rooted doesn't mean it won't update if the carrier chooses to push an update out. I received the same message today, tried to update but it failed. Not sure why though, I'm just stock rooted so it should have gone through. I'm trying to find out now why it won't go through.

    Found a answer with special thanks to kintwofan over at XDA. Just freeze the sdm 1.0 in Titanium. Problem solved. No more annoying update. Hope this helps.

    Im on rooted stock and got the update to go through and kept root by using OTA RootKeeper .. made the backup with rootkeeper, then temp unrooted and updated. Once it updated RootKeeper restored it. I used the ExynosAbuse app to root so I dont know if that makes a diffence over using the Odin method or not

    It has been reported that the update re-locks the bootloader, if you unlocked it, you should not accept the update.

    ...and no, rooting does not prevent OTA updates.

    At the Verizon web pages on the update, they say it's a security update (don't have the url right now). Presumably it patches the hole in the Exynos kernal code.

    i wonder if someone will come out with a way to side load it, or at least update it with those of use who are rooted.

    Did you delete any preinstalled software?

    No but I did rename a file to get the month splanner widget. Would that cause the problem.

    If you have all original files in place, and you haven't installed a custom recovery, the update should work.

    I guess since I removed some of the factory apps that's why it's failing, dang it! I really don't want to wipe again lol

    That's why it is recommended to rename preinstalled apps or move them to a different location.
    A factory reset will not bring back apps you deleted with root.

    I wouldn't accept the update at all until a bigger update is provided and we have ways to root them. If you want your phone patched just use exynos abuse.

    If you are completely stock unrooted and plan to stay that way then yeah accept the update

    That's what I did, I have a folder on my sd card that I moved them to. I could move them back and blah blah blah, but just for a security patch it's not worth it in my opinion. I'll just wait for the next major release.
