Lost Root and Recovery with OTA
I just got the OTA update yesterday to 4.4.4 KitKat. I downloaded the "L" developer preview and was going to flash it on my phone. I rebooted into recovery only to find a droid with a red exclamation mark on it's head. I went into Titanium Backup and it said I didn't have root access.
I tried going onto GooManager and installing a recovery, and TWRP, all failed. I guess I'm going to have to use the CF-Auto Root kit again, but I have one question.
Is there any way to tell if my bootloader is still unlocked? Or will doing this wipe my entire phone out? I have a lot of stuff on here I cannot afford to lose, but also don't want to transfer nearly 30 gigs of stuff to a hard drive. D;
If it matters, when I turn my phone on, it shows a "lock key" and it's "unlocked". I cannot remember that ever being there until after I rooted and stuff when I got the phone. Does this mean my bootloader is still unlocked? Or will I need to unlock everything again.
I learned my lesson. Never again doing OTA update.
