Hi all,
I have a few questions that burn me. Just received the OTA notification that .569 is available (304.4 MB)

I am running .67 with stock recovery, root and phone encryption. Will those be preserved if i OTA update ?

AFAIK root is lost and recovery is rewritten. I don't use phone encryption but I guess it is ok (or it would be stupid of Sony).

My experience has always been that OTA updates break root, and most of the time you wont be able to get it back until there is an exploit for the new firmware

4.3 OTA update will take away root and you will be unable to root under 4.3 directly.

You have to use the root methods shown as below(root under 4.2-flash another recovery-flash pre-root 4.3).

OTA left my root as it is. Check my post, how I did it:

This was the first OTA that broke my root, even with supersu in survival mode.
