Ahh OK.. Yeah, I did the full conversion (my thread is in dev) I have a fully converted gpe (radio, bootloader, recovery etc..) So when the ota drops I'll post a link for ya if someone doesn't beat me to it.

hey guys. So I have a "real" GPE from google. I've been reading a lot around here as my only past experience is with samsung and nexus devices so this is a bit different.
It's also hard cause there is much more info on the carrier devices and hard to sift through and see what applies to the GPE variant.
So I've learned my system partition is different. I can look into that further I'm pretty good on samsung on messing with stock images and adjusting them.

Bootloader unlock is trivial on GPE, fastboot oem unlock.
I flashed twrp and rooted.

Last thing is s-off. Is s-off easier on GPE like bootloader unlock or would I still need firewater for it?

To the point of this thread, when an OTA comes out will that effect s-off? I imagine it'd remove root but I believe I can edit the image to retain root and flash with TWRP easy enough, I've done it on samsung and nexus devices enough.

It definitely shouldn't affect S-OFF, but as with any OTA with any device known to man, it will kill root. But since you have an unlocked bootloader, you can just reroot after the OTA flashes.

and for s-off I still need firewater then... gpe doesn't make that any easier correct?
I really dont mind s-on currently, I have xposed, and modules running just fine. I just feel like I should do it, just in case.... I'll have more options in the future.

Correct. The GPE only allows unlocking the bootloader. S-OFF is not available through officially sanctioned channels.
