Does anyone know if the OTA update will block the Root process for the HTC evo v 3d all stock? Looking to root but was wondering if anything was patched in the update. Thanks!
Needing some help here guys, I've got a Verizon SCH-i605.
Phone was originally rooted and unlocked with casual when first released. Phone had always been on stock rom with root and custom recovery. Prior to the 4.1.2 OTA Update from Verizon I flashed factory Recovery followed by using Root Keeper to keep root and successfully updated to 4.1.2.
Having some issues with my Samsun Stellar... I couldn't load the 4.1.2 JB Update from Verizon on my rooted Stellar... So I tried to first 1) un-root then 2) flash back to the stock ROM then update. Option 1 didn't work, but Option 2 did.... Odin to stock rom, 1 small OTA update, then the JB OTA... worked like a charm. But once I got to JB, I couldn't re-root my phone.
alright sooooo. my optimus m was rooted through gingerbreak and on cm7 running cool as a cucumber. today i plugged my phone into my laptop and it needed to update the drivers; so i allowed it.... it updated my s/w version, stock reset my phone killing the root obviously; and put my phone into stock 2.2.2 ...... so that forced me to try and re-root using the dummy proof kit for 2.2.2.
So this mornining I received the message to update my phone to KitKat, but when I installed it, nothing happened. Am I stupid for thinking it would update a stock root? I used the chainfire automatic root method. How do I obtain KitKat and root? Thank you in advance guys.
So I'm currently running a rooted version of the stock 4.1.1 rom. I've been getting annoying notifications to update for about 9+ months but I just keep ignoring them. I'd like to update the phone to the latest version and I don't care about running any custom roms, all I care about is keeping my root. So what would be the easiest/quickest solution for me?
I rooted my phone a few months back, I froze the update software so it would not update and i lose root. base band is NB4. I used kies and did not trip knox. I first was wondering is their an update for our phones. I started having issue today with my screen, not working right. Try and swipe my screen and it hardly move, or touching a button on the screen and another one light up.
Only reason I have right now to root is to uninstall these stock apps my phone came with. Is there anyway to do it without a root? Or do I need to root it?? I'm currently on MI1..if I do need a root which one is a good tut to follow. Is it better to update fully to MJ7 then root? Just trying to see what's best.
