Hi, android noobie here, I have a rooted m8 that keeps rebooting after updating the at&t software.

I get the pop up that says AT&T software is available. If I clicked on continue it reboots to teamwin during boot up and once i reboot to system it just reboots itself every 30 secs or so.

I had to do a factory reset just to get my phone working again. But now the update screen is popping up again and I have to keep it under 35% so it doesn't auto update and keep pressing remind me later.

How do I disable this auto update? or is there an easier way to make the phone go back to stock since I really don't have any use of a rooted device besides watching MLB games...

Thanks for the help.

If I'm not mistaken, you would need to un-root your phone prior to installing any OTA Updates from AT&T. Also, you should only install the OTA Updates while using the stock recovery. So, you should re-flash the stock recovery and then attempt to complete the OTA Update. After that, you could re-install TeamWin, re-root and prosper.

Refer to this link on reverting back to stock... http://forum.xda-developers.com/show....php?t=2721435

Good rule of thumb, do not install OTA updates on any modded Android device, without at a minimum doing thorough research on what will happen.

Depending on the device and the update in question, attempt to install an OTA on a modded device will remove root, possibly plug existing exploits (and render the phone unable to be rooted), or put you in a boot loop (as you have experienced).

In particular, OTAs require stock recovery in order to install. So if you have custom recovery installed, this is why the OTA install is failing (and why it keeps booting into TWRP).

Also, there is little (if anything) contained in the OTAs that doesn't get posted in a safe format (flashed from custom recovery) in the Development section soon after the OTAs start to roll out.
