    I'm still kinda new to Android eventhough i have it rooted and flashed to Cyanogenmod.
    However samsung just put out a new update that improves system stability.

    If i update from my restored stock rom, will i lose my root?
    If so is there anyway i can keep my root?
    thanks in advance

    You will lose root. There is an app you can get called root keeper which may easily help you restore it after the update.

    Yes you will lose root. But root can easily be done again because the update didn't block the exploit. But I don't get it, why do you care about the stock update if you're flashing ROMs? I mean at the end of the day, isn't that why you are doing....so you can have a better ROM than stock? I wouldn't worry about the update because whatever ROM you get should address any performance issues anyway. Unless of course you really really want a stock device.

    The Cyanogenmod i was running on was an unofficial build, which had some issues still, i used voodoo however i can't seem to root my phone back.
    I also tried the motochopper root option and that said.

    Rooting phone...
    This may take a few minutes.
    Cleaning up...

    etc etc

    anyway to get my root back?
    thanks in advance
