Just a quick question. I have a Nexus 7 (2013 edition) that I keep with root access so that I can play videos from an external SD card. Do rooted Android devices usually get updates automatically?
My tablet seemed to ignore the latest OTA update, which is 4.4.3, so I went through the process of downloading the update manually into my computer, then disabled root in the tablet and installed the update.
I then regained root access in the tablet again. Luckily, it is fairly straightforward and I didn’t lose any data in the process while using WUG’s Nexus Root Toolkit. But even with this program holding my hand and leading me step by step through the process, it is still annoying. I can see it being fairly hair-raising and tense for anyone not technically minded.
Anyway, was the problem simply impatience on my part, or do rooted devices have issues in updates?
