I'm flashing ElementalX and Project ERA.

Once I flash back stock recovery and OTA, those should be gone theoretically correct?

Though, if I remember correctly, there is both a prerooted and uprooted version of the ruu zip.

Last question for you: I changed my soft keys using the application Softkeyz. If I flash an OTA, will I lose the changed soft keys?
