    How to get the upgrade while rooted?

    Just like Everyone else I am anxiously awaiting the 2.3 update, but I got the nexus with 2.2 already installed. So my question is do i have to unroot to get the update, or will I be fine using a custom rom? I just want to make sure I get the update as soon as it becomes available.

    You state your using a custom rom, which one are you using?

    I am pretty sure if you removed Google's Froyo ROM and installed like CM6 or MUI that will take you out of the update cycle form Google, and you will have to get your updates from the ROM maker.

    If you're rooted, you won't get the ota while you're on the alternate rom. Can't say for sure if you will if you go back to the stock rom either unless you're using Universal Androot and then revert completly to stock, but you'll lose your root exploit when you upgrade, which will either require Super One Touch root (featuring rageagainstthecage exploit and a PC to do) or the manual bootloader unlock root. The 2.3 rom will be mirrored everywhere I'm guessing and you will be able to upgrade assuming you kept a copy of your stock 2.2 somewhere, but again I'm assuming you'll have to upgrade to frg83 first to upgrade to the grg?? update. If not, the aftermarket rom are pretty quick to update once the source code is released. :nexusx:
