I just happened to do a software check, and it is downloading a new version. Any ideas? I was already on Lollipop.

More than likely security update for stagefright vulnerability. S5 got theirs a week or so ago.

400 megs for Stagefright? That seems pretty big.

I'm on Lollipop, but Rooted. Will this update take away root by any chance?

Typically these updates do remove root. Best to wait until someone has a root method figured out for the new update.

I just updated via the OTA method on AT&T. Rebooted twice. I still have root (verified by Root Checker). Here's my About page:



Here's the root checker pic:



I now have OC2. Update OTA with confidence!

I originally rooted OC1 (Lollipop) by following the Root/OC1 method.

EDIT: I just checked for stagefright vulnerability (via Stagefright detector). It reports that my device is NOT VULNERABLE. Nice.



I took the chance because this site has helped me in sooo many ways. It's the least I could do. Thanks everyone.
