I am rooted with TWRP and flashed the G-Flex mod for the dual window. Stock Verizon.

I currently love my phone setup right now and don't want to have to return to stock, so I have a few questions about this OTA:

1. What is in the OTA, and is it worth taking?

2. Is there a way I can completely ignore the OTA and get it to stop reminding me?

3. If I do decide to take the OTA, will OTA rootkeeper allow me to OTA update and stay rooted?

4. If I do decided to reset my phone to stock, I should follow this guide right? http://forum.xda-developers.com/show....php?t=2432476


Thanks for the help.

I wouldn't take the OTA since you have custom recovery (TWRP). I'll let someone with more knowledge chime in but don't take it.
Theres a certain apk you freeze in order to stop it from loading the OTA reminder but it depends on your phone. Some carriers are different.

thanks, I'll try to find the apk to freeze. I won't take it, but it seems like it keeps popping up saying its going to do it at a scheduled time, and I'm just hoping it won't do it overnight when I can't stop it.

Is the process for removing root or TWRP much harder than the process for setting it up? If its not too much trouble I can go back to stock for the update and reflash all my mods, etc.

Do some reading and you will find the answer cause someone has taken the time to read and write this in general section,

I did read man. I didnt brick or do anything stupid. I was just asking how to stop the ota update. He told me to freeze something and I looked it up myself. Just asking now if its safe to delete fota cache. No need to get upset

I haven't rooted my replacement G2 yet - does flashing this most recent OTA update make rooting the phone any more difficult?

not sure, it seems to be able to reroot. Also read something about rootkeeper app, but cannot confirm it's effectivity.
