Root will not affect your ability to receive OTA updates, the only thing that can affect it is custom kernel.

Neither me or the phone.
It won't affect the ability to receive OTA's, only if you change to a custom system version.


Note: Interesting, just run "checkin" to force the check and it showed me again the system update.
At least I'm able to read properly the message.
"This system update from Google contains important bug fixes plus the latest version of Maps."

i tried what you said viewing nyc and it's not working. i do however have 5.0. Should i not be in satellite layer?

in order to extract the url for the system update, we need to run alogcat from the market, then when the update notification appears look in your logs for a url that says something like clients.google . You can install alogcat, then set filter to clients.google

edit: you can even go into preferences, and have the log save every hour

Hope the update brings fixes to some of the more minor issues mentioned (like blurry MMS, or random ringtone/SMS tone changes, browser lag, etc.). Looking forward to a list of what is addressed in this update. An update less than a week after release is testament to the benefit of owning a Google phone.

I was really disappointed with the MMS issue and was considering returning the S and going back to the One... but if this fixes the issue. Then I'll be happy. Especially since they got to it fast.
