Phone's prompting me to take the ZVA update. What do I need to do before accepting?

I am rooted.
TWRP recovery.
Hotspot mod.

I'm guessing updating would put my phone in a boot loop, right? What do I need to do first? Turn off the root and flash a stock recovery? Is that good enough?

Yes, updating will boot loop. If you want the update then you may need to flash the stock ROM to get rid of the hotspot mod.
I have heard this update checks just about everything in the book.
But yes stock recovery, and no root for sure.

Im on the same boat but am gonna wait. Unless theres Spark in your area there not much point to do it. Theres lots of issues with the new ZVA update (on rooted and custom recovery phones) and im gonna wait for an easier fix than what is available. The current process is a bit too complicated and not worth it. Ill wait for a simple zip to flash or a totally custom ROM with ZVA already on it. But thats just me.


If you do it... update us on here.
