    OTA for rooted and unlocked GN?

    I have a stock ICL53F GN that is unlocked and rooted. The only reason I run it rooted is so that I can use a modified email client that allows me to bypass some Exchange security features. The long and the short of it, I started getting the pop-up on my phone this morning for the IMM76K update. I'm a little hesitant to install the OTA update because I'm currently rooted and unlocked. My assumption is that the update will break root, but will I get any other potential errors? Should I revert back to an unrooted ICL53F rom and try the OTA update or should I be fine in my current setup for the OTA (and then unroot later).

    I spent some time using ADB back in January when I first received the phone, but in all honesty, I have not touched ADB and Clockwork Mod since then, so I'm a bit rusty on the whole process now.

    I doubt if the update will push thru when you install it because you mentioned being rooted and clockworkmod. It will look for the stock images. If it's only the recovery altered, you can flash a stock one to let the update go through. It would really be your choice.

    If you have clockwork recovery installed the update will fail after it downloads when it will try to install. If you still have stock recovery or you fastboot flash the stock recovery back on the update will go through but it will break root when it is done and you'll have to root again with the new SU binary.

    I ended up flashing both wife & I Nexus back to stock. Thence unlocking, rooting and flashing ROM with new version ICS. Found no other method to remove annoying OTA notification.
