    Yes. It breaks root and you lose custom recovery
    From the xda-dev thread: "So I was not paying enough attention today and I let my phone upgrade to 9.18.94. The phone had been previously rooted and I also had a custom recovery ROM installed. The OTA update seems to have gone pretty smoothly but at this point I think I've lost all of the "custom" stuff I had done - namely the recovery ROM and the root access. I knew this was likely to happen but unfortunately it slipped my mind before I did the upgrade."

    Im rooted on the RAZR m and just took the 98.18.94 update and it did lose root but I have voodoo root keeper installed and it gave me root back on the new update have read a few other people who had the same luck

    An update can't relock the bootloader, right?

    Can the latest update prevent re-root?
