hey guys, nice tool matt! (bet you get that a lot!)....quick question. I rooted my brothers phone and dumped all his razr bloatware, got him on setCPU, bootstrapped him, and then backed him up. He is not adept at this stuff at all...in fact all he wanted was all the bloatware gone...
So my question for yall...he recently just got a request for the OTA update that I guess just went out...of course his dumbass hit update without consulting me, but thank goodness it didnt allow the update....
So to make a long story longer....can I use this tool to add voodoo rootkeeper to his phone...and then when I do that will he be able to update to the latest update? He is on stock firmware, rooted, but debloated...I heard that because he is debloated it might never take the OTA...what do you guys think? Can I use this tool to get around that? Any suggestions? I dont want to throw the thread on too much of a tangent so if I am off topic can someone please PM me instead? Thanks Razr owners!
- Pre-loaded Bloat in the /preinstall/ folder
- Default .apk and .odex files are intact
If you have those things you can take the OTA. OTA rootkeeper will let you keep root if you temp. unroot before any OTA update and restore it after, but it won't help you if you cannot update first.
My suggestion: Use my utility to go down to 6.11.748 stock unrooted. Update to 6.12.173 normally. Root with my utility and install bootstrap. Make a backup. When times comes for the next OTA use boostrap to restore any bloat you may have removed. OTA rootkeeper will also be useful.
Have a nice day!
