Hi,

I see the Stagefright patch came out today. I'm on Stock Rooted Lollipop with S-off and unlocked. My phone was able to download the patch but then went to TWRP recovery so no dice.

I'm aware of the process needed to get the OTA to work. Just wondering if any side-loadable forms of the Stagefright patch may be forthcoming from some of the genius developers around here. Obviously want the fix but not so sure about having to undue everything on my phone.

Otherwise, is the best suggestion to reflash stock recovery and then take the OTA? IS it true this won't re-lock my phone or S-On it again? Seems if these remain unchanged from current state I would have easier time.

Thanks for ANY advice. Always appreciate it.

My phone downloaded, went into recovery. Saw that it was TWRP and didn't do anything. So technically, the download didn't take. I will wait as the next comment suggests....flashable zip is surely inbound.

Thanks!

I would just sit tight. Someone is bound to extract the contents and post a flashable zip with confidence that it won't cause any problems. Give it a day or 3.
