Android Rooting Forum discussion about general android root development.
I'm curious at what will happen if I have rooted my device then I subsequently update the software. Will this "brick" the phone? Will it remove the rooting that was performed? Or will it normally update the software while still maintaining its rooting?
In most cases it will remove Root. If you want to update, be sure to check out XDA for your device for some work-arounds and ways to retain root. Another is to break into the wonderful world of ROM's. More often ROM developers have taken what is good in an update and improved on it while trashing what sucks and is often most times bloatware.
Thanks man. At least I know that my phone won't be bricked. I'm not taking full advantage of my rooted phone anyways. I see no difference when I rooted it as compared to the time before it was rooted. I'll just probably go ahead with the update.
