    Exclamation [.621 Update] Will Break ability to SBF older firmwares

    This just in from Droid Life, apparently the new .621 breaks the ability to use older firmware files in RSD Lite, meaning, you will NOT be able to return to .605/.602 or .340, at all.

    If it breaks this, I would assume the bootloader has been updated (unlocked? Doubtful...) and I would also assume it breaks root as well!

    If you make an attempt at an SBF to an older android version, you will have a very nice PAPER WEIGHT! AKA BRICK!

    Please take caution when taking the update, if you do take the update, don't dinc with it!

    You have been warned!

    By looking at the bootloader, it's still the same but something has changed. Stay away!!!!

    Anyone know of a quick way to get a hold of the guy that used rootkeeper and took the ota? If we could get a nand of 621, it might help out a ton.

    Are you on the new update? If so, what is the bootloader info?

    Shatter, who posted on the soak test thread the last couple of days, said he checked it and it was still 3 0 0 4.

    Actually was his wife's X, that was not rooted and got the update that he checked the bootloader on. He has an X as well that was rooted and had taken the update without issue using the rootkeeper method.
