Hello

 

My Orange San Diego has some hardware problem with charging. Orange has asked me to update to the latest version before they are prepared to investigate this issue, I assume they mean the 37MB OTA update to 4.0.5. 

 

Question 1: my ROM is 4.0.4 and rooted - so how I can unroot it? I assume the AIO tool will do that. 

 

Question 2: if I apply the OTA update, can I still root it later? Do I have to downgrade - can I downgrade? 

 

I have tried to find this out, but the documentation for the OTA is rather hard to follow. Any help is very much appreciated.

PS: It seems that my USB connector is broken - I cannot get an adbd connection to the phone, nor access the MTP device. Any other options for OTA?

Hm, strange. I managed to get it to work for a while, reinstalled the Orange ROM, and now it is working fine.

If you've reinstalled the Orange rom then you'll be un-rooted (if that's a word) anyway. Once you've put the latest patch on you're snookered as far as root is concerned.
