Do that BEFORE the OTA update, and you will not have any issues with OTAs ever again and loosing root.
x2 I used this method and it works fine. No messing around with OTA rootkepper, no need to uninstall superuser/etc.

ever root is arguably SAFER than your method. All it does is make the system change the permission on the files on every bootup. It's not rocket science.
I have a question about running a Deodexed rom. Will I have a problem upgrading or do I have to SBF back to stock? I also have the 1 percent mod that I love. How can I keep this. My understanding is this only works for deodexed roms.
I'm not Jim but I do have the answers to your questions!
You should flash the fkz's (sbf) files before you update, just a good idea to remove any oddities or potential problems. Also most modifications do relay on a deodexed ROM , so my guess is that it won't work with the new update yet. My personal recommendation would be to wait until lfaber06 incorperates this update into a nice little cwm flashable zip (around this weekend, or next), that will already contain root, as well as the 1 percent mod and the updated theming!
well that's what i get for not reading here first. My coworker was demo-ing an app to our CEO and the update notification came in. A few minutes later he comes back and says he hit download then install when it came up. When i got it it was flashing in recovery already
No way if it was done correctly that it bricked your phone.correctly can be accomplished by navigating to the proper file then copy pasting the code in order.the only thing you are modifying is superuser.
