    ota update with root

    Hello all,
    My question is simple. I have a stock captivate running 2.1. i have only rooted using oneclick root.
    If and when an OTA update for froyo comes, will I have to re-root or will I be able to recieve the update and install at that time.

    You will have to re-root your phone. If you haven't made any other changes other than rooting, you will probably be safe to install the update, but you will lose root.

    Depends on what the update covers. It could patch the vulnerability used for Root, or it might not... Usually it won't, but it has happened.
