dear XDA members ,,, as i got a lot of solutions in this form and i see the OTA updates are making problems for many users ,,, here is the solution for people who unlocked the bootloader and installed CWM recovery ......

ON STOCK ROM ...

1- you dont need to relock the bootloader ..

2- download voodoo rootkeeper .. (from market) and run the program and click protect root.

3- you will need your original recovery that you changed to CWM ..

example: if you had 1.28.415.9 and you installed CWM then you need recovery.img for 1.28.415.9 .

install the stock recovery from http://forum.xda-developers.com/show...5#post24738635

4-install recovery.img from fastboot ..

5-boot into phone and OTA update the one x to 1.29.xxx .

6-after update is done just open rootkeeper and click restore root ,,

7-DONE

a big thanks for xda members and im happy to help ...

Actually I never really had to relock the bootloader to apply an OTA... just flashing the stock recovery and keeping the unlocked bootloader + rooted custom ROM did the trick for me... Tho its not a really good idea to install an OTA patch on top of a custom ROM.

i added ( FOR STOCK ) what i know if you have custom rom you wont receive OTA ... will you ???!!!! ... my solution is about if you are still on Stock ...

if you search google youll see people talking about locking the bootloader and removing root and all kind of crap ...

...since the radio is part of the rom now and the only "advantage" of flashing a RUU is an hboot update.

So what is the "advantage" of an newer hboot? If someone finds an exploit on the 0.43 hboot which is fixed on newer hboots you gonna cry (-:

So my advice..stay on lowest hboot until we get S-OFF.

I also didn't have to relock my bootloader.

Just restored my default back up with cwm before root. Fastboot restore to original recovery (stock), update and done. Went back to fastboot and restored cwm, rooted the phone and done.

Has this been confirmed, that the radio is flashed when flashing a rom?
