    The other I got the popup for the AT&T Lollipop update, and since my G3 is rooted simply dismissed it and submitted a tip to AC. Since then it popped up again yesterday and I had to actually force stop the update service to get rid of it.

    Last night I rebooted my phone before going to bed and this morning I woke up to find my phone is updated to 5.0.1. How could this happen? First, how can the OTA happen on a rooted phone, and second, how can it happen completely unattended!

    I'm really ticked now. I had no intention of upgrading since my G3 was tweaked to perfection, running as smooth as silk and doing everything I wanted the way I wanted! I thought a rooted phone couldn't even take an OTA. I checked and of course SuperSU says there is no SU binary installed. And yes, I'm positive I was rooted!

    I don't get it.

    Mine isn't rooted, and I got the notification yesterday that an update is available. Hit remind me later and this morning after walking the dog, I find my phone is in the optimizing apps part of the update. I never told it to update and I didn't really want it because of possible bluetooth issues. Looks like they are being heavy-handed with this update.

    I have no idea how they would update your rooted phone though.

    I was asked a month ago to update to lollipop. I declined, went to settings, disabled updates. Never been asked since. I have also disabled automatic downloads for all my apps too. Hate lollipop problems, that's why it's disabled.

    Don't forget the CIA and the government in general. It's probably Big Brother forcing the update so they can watch us

    OTA can still work on rooted phone, you usually just end up with unrooted updated device. It's custom recovery that would prevent OTA.
