    Anyone on regular rooted GB successfully accept the new OTA update and have it work (other than losing root)?

    I'm considering trying it and but would like to know if anyone else has done so successfully. I'm already sick of clicking "install later" and not feeling the love to sbf back to froyo and start all over. If I just lose root I can live with it.

    Thanks.

    I don't believe you can/will get the OTA if you are rooted. I believe the only route is to SBF, then accept the update.

    BTW, P3Droid is supposed to have already rooted this version and will have a new version out soon.

    I'm rooted and got OTA. Haven't check root status yet.

    Edit: Lost root with update.

    But the update worked w/o causing any bootloops etc - right?

    I WAS rooted. Accepted the OTA. Install went fine. Lost root. Don't notice any changes or improvements. The threads say there is a new radio. Have not noticed any improvement with call quality.

    The update works fine if rooted. You do lose root though.

    Does anyone know if it matters what version of gingerbread your using? I am still using the leaked rooted version.

    So here's something interesting. I was rooted and updated fine. Not surprisingly, I tried to use bootstrapper to get into clockwork recovery and no joy.
    However, a few hours later when I restarted the phone I booted into recovery.
    So sort of rooted?

    Was your phone plugged in to the charger or your pc or had it been prior to the restart?

    Think I'm gonna hold off and stay rooted with a working Wireless Tether.

    Not sure my hacked wireless tether will continue working even with a rooted .602 and until I find some confirmation of that I'll just keep pressing "install later" and see what comes of the p3droid .602. I know it's petty but being able to surf on my iPad (even if it's just for an hour in the evening) when we go to camp for the weekend is just important enough to sit tight.

    Wireless Tether still works for you? Lucky. Mine takes the PC and my dx to a "you should really pay for tethering" paywall. So very annoying.

    If you pull the battery when the phone is on it should boot into clockwork recovery.

    I did it this way and retained root. Make sure you dl the new su file. Then accept the update, after phone reboots and says updated success, do the battery pull with phone still on. This takes you into bootstrapper cwr. Then install su file. Reboot and your good. Well it worked for me, hopefully for you too. Read the link a few times make sure you get it right

    nope, that's the problem, it doesn't. i've tried numerous times, with and without charger plugged in. no go. i've got a lot of experience following detailed directions.

    Do you see the "hijack" and "logwrapper.bin" files in /system/bin?

    If not, I think you need to obtain these files and copy them to system/bin. Then the battery pull should boot into clockwork recovery. I think that you need to bootstrap before following this procedure.

    yes, those files appear to be there already. not sure if i'd be able to write them there otherwise if i've lost root, but i guess they don't seem to help...

    You are probably at this point going to have to sbf to 234 and reroot with z4, redownload cwr d2bootstrapper and then pull the update, or do the two file update.

    yep, i figured that already. at the moment i'm just waiting to discover when i feel like i am needing root again, or when someone comes out with something new, or a different method, whichever of the three comes first. at least the phone is running nicely and everything i use regularly is working well.
