Details on the changes are limited at this point, but it has been reported that it patches the vulnerability that allows Universal Androot to work. Several users with alternative keyboards have reported some issues, but a simple reinstall of the keyboard app appears to resolve all problems
Anyone else seeing this? I rooted using Androot and want to be sure this won't 'break' it....

I'm rooted mine with android universal root, and flashed recovery using clockworkmod but I have the stock rom. Can I update my phone using this zip file?

be careful, the new update kills 3rd party keyboards and also disables pattern and no screen lock options in security.

this update seems to take away more than it adds

None of what you said is true, nice scaremongering.

I have 2 third party keyboards installed and use pattern unlock on FRG83.

It does however break the one click root, you need to get a pre-rooted update.zip and install that really.

I'm on CM6S with my Nexus, I'm not sure if this update is even worth it now that I've replaced the stock OS.

If it's true that it kills the 1-click-root app then it's not worth updating at all.

how can I update from FRG33 ?
You need to have an unlocked bootloader, or root access.
If it's true that it kills the 1-click-root app then it's not worth updating at all.
100% true, but as you're on CM6, it's not really relevant.
then how to root FRG83? can we use FRF91 superboot?
If bootloader unlocked, then easy, grab this and flash via custom recovery.

If not, then you need to look up the rageagainstthecage exploit.

My Microsoft Exchange account now allows the administrator to make changes to my device. I.e. I can no longer unlock with a pattern, have to use a PIN or password.
Correct yourself; this is what you're referring to, and it's not what you're claiming.

I just posted in a thread about 2 min ago on how to do this and for the ones that lost root androot don't work but you can use frf91 superboot from madoco and it works fine.
