    So now that I'm rooted... whats the situation with OTAs

    Im still new to the Android game and I just finished rooting my X

    One thing I'm really wondering about is what to do when an OTA is released? Will I automatically lose root, will it hurt my phone in anyway etc?

    What is everyone's normal approaches to OTAs after rooting their phones, should I stay away from them?

    Well, it is going to be a little different situation with the DX and the fact that Froyo is going to be released "very" soon. If the DX did "not" have a locked bootloader, I would say to just skip the OTA updates. However, I think that Froyo is going to definitely be worth losing root over. The bad thing is that Motorola will most definitely patch up with the 2.2 OTA update the loophole which allowed root with the DX. Then, it will be another waiting game until someone finds root on that.

    That is my take on it. I definitely will skip the OTA updates before Froyo comes out, but I will install the Froyo update. At which point, I will lose root and will most likely have to wait awhile until someone roots the DX 2.2 Froyo.

    If I'm incorrect, someone please point it out.
