toast will probably recommend not to use the OTA update and recommend you use his separate update files ....

ok...thats in line with what i was reading. as he was saying yes the root works after the ota but we may find that you need the shipping version of the rom...in order to maybe unlock the nand. and if you ota you may lose that.

kinda hard to make a definitive answer for that..I'm happy to say that although I ran the OTA, the root method still worked.

I think, though, the point is that not running OTAs is just a good rule o' thumb cuz y'never know what may happen.

p.s. you do realize that if you are, indeed, planning to root..there's no reason to run the OTA cuz root takes you backward, right?

was not aware that it would take ya backwards...all though that makes sense...after rooting though and doing the ota update we know root sticks so...that would bring you current again. which though when i was reading that the ota update may or may not prevent you from doing the nand unprotect later on
