    I know most people have not received the update yet but for the few that have, are you guys still able to sideload apps/install apps from amazon marketplace if your device was previously rooted?

    Also if your device was rooted on 4.1.57 are you still rooted or have they plugged the hole. Thanks

    was that with the superoneclick program? I was wondering if i enabled sideloading using superoneclick all the way back when it was stock firmware i will continue to sideload apps after this update. I guess we'll see when more people have the update

    Not SuperOneClick. Thats the program that Roots Androids. But it wont Root the Atrix. You Need the AC Sideload Wonder Machine. Thats what sideloads the apps. I got it installed on my laptop and desktop. If we can obtain root with the latest update, we wont need to use it. But its good that its there

    I think you are still rooted by running afterupdate.bat (Gladroot method) after applying the OTA update, if that is originally how you rooted. I installed 1.2.6 then rooted(gladroot 4.2) while updating to 1.5.7 and then updated to 1.8.3 by installing update.zip method and then ran afterupdate.bat which is a step in Gladroot 4.2. I'm still rooted at this moment.
