hello everyone,I'm a c6902 user in bangkok
the only one reason that keep me out form my z1 rooted is not sure for the way of update

my question is if i root my Z1,.and whenever there is a new update rolling out
could i just flash a update.zip using the recovery and keep all my date(all apps and setting)
OR i just need to backup by myself using the recovery(maybe just select DATE i guss?)
OR i have to flash a full new fw zip and start over again for all my apps and setting?

i really want to get it rooted but kind of be tired of the date loss
sorry for my poor English,thanks if any one just could give me a answer

If you get root and an Update roll out you cannot use OTA or Stock FTF because you will lose Root.

To still keep Root you will have to wait for the Pre-Rooted FTF by NUT to Update and keep Root.

You can keep your data just Excluding Wipe Data in flashing.

BTW, is recommended to Backup you Partition before do anything, even if you do nothing, to restore your phone where something go wrong.
