Well... looks like they will shut down our data until we upgrade. I'm wondering if a cooked ROM will do the tricks.

The big questions is whether or not this update will remove root accessibility.

I really would rather not update if that is the case.

Default total newb question

Will we lose the ability to flash a new Rom? Ie. does the perfected SPL remove the ability of the recovery?

Frankly I'd take it with a grain of salt.
Yeah, IPs are given out by the service provider. In this case Rogers. Not the other way around.

It can't be a hardware or hard coded based identification (MAC address, IMEI).
The only way I can think of Rogers knowing if you upgraded or not by the Build Number (not to sure how).

I suppose theoretically, if someone can get a dump of the build, hotweiss or redglasses, and patch it into their ROMs and we upgrade to them and Rogers sees the build #. Then our 3G connection should be restored.

You'll get it in English soon after.

If you enjoy installing Custom ROMs you might want to hold of upgrading. There is confusion whether it's shipped with a perfected SPL.

Default is it possible to root it?

will it be possible to root the phone (eg. 1-click method)?
