Hello!
A few weeks ago, HTC sends me an update to fix the Heartbleed Bug from Android 4.1. On my device I have root and Xposed. If I install the update, would it remove my root and Xposed? It's my first Android Update after rooting

Thanks,
Weely_XD

I think you have to go back to full stock (Rom,recovery,bootloader locked) to update, so yes update remove root.

Could someone that installed this confirm if root was lost or not?

Thanks!

Well, I went ahead and installed the stock recovery and this OTA-update.
Everything seemed fine so I re-installed a new copy of TWRP (same version number as I had before)... Confused me totally. It was asking me to root again as soon as I quit recovery, which I did a few times... But I could never finish the installation of SuperSU. It always failed...
I was messing around with this for 2 days, until I for some reason tried to install TWRP from another "old" file I found on my computer (the exact same file I used when i rooted my phone the first time).

Now everything worked fine...
I guess the other recovery image was corrupt, incorrect, or something else...

Well, the mess was sorted out at least, and I still have root, did not have to reset my phone, and everything else seems to be OK.

Thanks!
