Default Broken root

I broke my root i took the update that rolled out today mainly because I wanted my Google wallet back. But now root no longer works does anyone have any idea on how to fix this. Yes I know you shouldn't take otas while rooted but I'm just rooted my bootloader is still locked so i had no way to get the update. Any thoughts would be helpful.

I just read about the update and i plan to wait. No need yet for wallet for me and haven't had any of the other issues referenced. Also going to try and hold out for 4.1 JB update. Read the Nexus for ATT and TMo are starting to get it today also. Curious what security update is included in this one though.

I just read an article over on www.goodandevo.net (or pocketables.com) regarding the OTA update. There are some fixes it brings but it definitely blocks out the root/S-OFF method that Lazy Panda made for the LTE.

If you have already taken the OTA update, then you will most likely now have to wait until somebody finds another way to S-OFF the LTE.

I have a newb question. I haven't played around with rooting or anything since I had my OG Evo and thus feel a bit rusty.

I keep reading articles that mention that the LTE is now rootable and can gain S-OFF and then other articles that let you unlock the bootloader.

Can somebody clarify for me the main difference? I believe the S-OFF allows you to flash roms and kernels while the bootloader merely allows you the ability (if desired) to customize the main boot screen. Right??

Unlocking the bootloader allows you to flash roms, kernels, and recovery through fastboot commands but prevents you from flashing zips from the bootloader unless they're signed by HTC.

S off allows you to flash zips from bootloader that can modify anything including radios, pri, and (from og evo experience) wimax by flashing unsigned PC36IMG (again, I'm going off og evo experience) zips.


Also if you unlock the bootloader you have to go to htcdev.com and basically tell HTC you're doing it, putting your meid in their database so bye bye warranty.

S off allows you to avoid that problem, so you can (if needed) go full stock and s on for the warranty

Could someone else let me know if I am missing something?

I need the ruu files to fix my phone. Does anyone know how long it generally takes for them to release them after an update?

Your best bet is to keep an eye on XDA.
