Default Yikes! 4.3 update pushed and I'm not ready!

So, I am S-OFF, unlocked and rooted. I tried to postpone the 4.3 update until later, after I'd done some research, but the download started anyway.

I assume I'll lose root with the update but I wonder if re-rooting will be possible. Can anyone comment?

Voodoo OTA does not work with 4.3's security updates so that's out.

I have no idea if you'll be able to reroot or not, but if you have a custom recovery, the OTA will still download, but will not install. The OTA needs the stock recovery in order to install correctly, so as long as you have CWM or TWRP, you should be good.

Quite right. That's exactly what happened. That should have been plain to me. Cheers.

you can disable the OTA updates by deleting, freezing or .bak ing:
Updater.apk
HtcOMADM_SettingsPlugin_VZW.apk
HtcOMADM_VZW.apk
in /system/app/ and rebooting.

So long as you are s-off, you will be able to re-root after the update. It was already confirmed by someone else on another thread that the update does not change s-off status so you should be good

even if you do get the OTA it wont install unless you have stock recovery. but yes you will need to remove the nag.

I was rooted S-off and unlocked. I reflashed the stock recovery and accepted the OTA. After, I still had S-off and Unlocked. The only issue was that my radio signal was horrible. My phone would switch from 3G to 1x and sometimes not detect the data signal. My 4G was intermittent. Prior to the update, my phone signal was pretty good. After my phone signal is down to 1-2bars where I used to get 3-4bars signal showing. Plus if I toggled from wifi back to just mobile data, the mobile data took a while to kick in. I was unhappy, I called verizon support just to see what they would say and of course...Factory Reset. I did it and that didn't help. So since I had still had root, I have reverted back to the .10 version of software(ran decrypted RUU). Now my phone is back to normal and better than before.

I am running BoneStock and found the HtcOMADM* files but not Updater.apk. Is it in a different location or maybe omitted in bonestock? Will it matter as long as I rename the HtcOMADM* files?

I assume I also need to delete the OTA zip in the cache folder before I reboot?
