View Full Version : Question about my update..want to make sure everything is ok..

I Rooted and Flashed Rubix 1.8.6 a few days before thanksgiving. I made a nandroid backup and all that good stuff before I flashed the rom.

Today I wanted to get the new update, so I flashed back to the pre rom nandroid, unfroze the various APK's I did not want and then I downloaded and installed the update.

Once the update was downloaded, etc..I thought I would lose root. I did not, or I dont think I did. I have since used TIBU to load all my stuff back up from when I was running rubix. I just want to make sure that I did not mess something up and that I do indeed have the most current updates.

When I go into settings: About PHone, this is what I see:


Am I updated correctly? Why didnt I lose root like I was told I would?

That's the correct system number and android os number so it seems like it worked. Did you have the Madden bloatware on it?

Yeah the madden is there...thinking about getting the full version..

Dude, that's sweet. You didn't have to mess with rerooting. Seems like you're one of the lucky ones.

Most definitely, plus the way some folks are having trouble rooting lately call it real lucky.

I just hope everything was done correctly..the fact that I have not seen many people maintain root throughout the OTA has me a little worried.

There has been a couple other people that didn't lose it either, consider yourself lucky.

I know many of you are excited about this Madden bloatware thing.......I am not .....has anyone figured out a way to junk this?? One reason I have not updated yet is because of this ......I do not want it on my X.
Thanks in advance!

freeze it with titanium backup, or don't take the update. Madden is actually a small file, it's an installer, if you don't want the actual game you don't have to dl it
