Hello all,

I am on the French version of firmware .761 and on doom kernel with unlocked bootloader. I have been notified of a firmware update to the same version I'm on. See attached photo. Does anyone know if it would be safe to update over the air perhaps if I flash stock kernel back as it's similar firmware?

Cheers,
Lunar.

SUS or PCComapnion will not work with an unlocked bootloader, so no need to worry about that

OTA updates will not brick the device, it just causes problems, and may result in a soft brick (Which is not really a brick at all because its fixable)

update your kernel to one based on .761 and it should stop update notifications
