Requirements:

1. A custom recovery.
2. A nandroid backup.
3. Stock files, sans root.
4. Optional, but recommended that you use this to backup root access first:

It shouldnt hurt root either, but make a nandroid to be safe.

If you lose root, try flashing this:

So this is the OTA minus the new bootloader? So basically the new radios and the kernel patch only?

Re: Bootloader Safe OTA Update
So I can just make a nandroid and flash it over Beans v6 and it should install the radios just fine right?

Nope. Check requirements

I added a third one in anticipation of that question.

1) Will this work for the Verizon version of CleanRom?
2) Do I have to unroot? The directions aren't clear to me. Sorry about that.
3) If I do have to unroot, can I just use OTA rootkeeper to root again afterwards?

Yes. There is no safe way (that I know of) to force patch files on a custom rom.

When I get home, I can make a deodexed patch file, but it will overwrite any custom changes you have.
