You either want to use the service or you don't, its that simple.yeah, and people like you are just out to make some money......
HK devices are ok you can update to any firmware, we were talking about US devices.I have a HK device with a "G980ZHU1****" build number and before attempting to root, I noticed that it wants to do an OTA update to a "g9980ZHU2****" -- does this mean that if I let this OTA happen, I won't be able to unlock and root?
I was thinking of first installing this OTA, and then rooting afterwards, so I have the latest version after the root. But is it a bad idea then? Or is the HK version 2 also rootable?
PS: How and when can I do the update then? Never? As far as I understand it, if you update you loose root, but if updating to a version 2 will lock the bootloader, then am I stuck with my current version of the OS?
