I run CM7, but know a few people who are still on rooted stock. It would be nice to know if, once the new stock OS is rooted, we can employ similar measures to prevent further minor updates and loss of root.
Please note that I am asking about anyone who got the update without wanting it despite measures to block it...I understand that anyone who voluntarily updates will lose root.
Yes, I lost root. No,OTAcerts renaming and DB tinkering weren't of any use at all. I don't know about build.prop, but IIUC, that only works after the update has been out a little while, and can't prevent *new* updates like the one that unrooted my nook yesterday.
Unless a reliable method of blocking updates can be found, I may have to go to a custom mod. CM7 is great, but the sleep issue worries me. Maybe, now that an official version of Froyo is out, Nookie-Froyo devs can canabalize drivers, kernels etc and give us a fully functional flash tablet without the sleep of death or the fear of auto-updates?
