Root Question.

    LewisThomas , Apr 4, 2015 :
    I want to root my OPO and I know how but if I root it I'm scared that eventually when the OTA comes out for Lollipop it will mess everything up (this happened on my previous phone)

    Can anyone confirm this will not happen?

    Thanks.

    If you root, simply flash the OTA whenever it comes out (guaranteed someone will have made a flashable zip out of it within a day)

    well if you flash say cm12, you wont even get the option for cm12s ota. you would have to manually flash it then you will start gettng cm12s ota after your already on it .

    But if I flash how will I ever get back to the CM12s OTA from OPO?

    Why do you have to get the OTA? Why can't you just flash the ROM when it comes out?

    You won't. You have to manually flash back to cm12s once its released. I will probably do the same thing. I'm on cm 12 now

    Same way you will flash to cm12 . download it from OnePlus or wherever , go to twrp and do a clean wipe and all of that stuff and then flash cm12s
