    Rooted-- what if I install CWM?

    Hi to all, I am a bit of a noob in this field and I am just trying to understand how all this stuff works..
    So i have just recently rooted with vipermod 4.5 and all is fine, I did not unlock the boot loader however; I am interested in installing clockwork mod to make a full backup of my stock rom in case I get the urge to flash to a custom rom; if I install the clockwork mod and remain on the stock rom for a while will I receive the official OTA updates from Asus or no?

    If there are other mods I can use instead of clockwork mod, can anyone maybe post the links or useful steps I need to install such mods...

    Thanks for the help, really appreciate it..

    If you install a custom recovery like CWM, you will receive notifications for OTA updates BUT they will fail every time.

    You can just download the updates to a microSD card and flash them via CWM and it will revert back to stock unrooted. You can then use the VooDoo OTA Rootkeeper before you update. Then restore afterwards.

    If you are interested in custom ROMs then you will need CWM installed.

    Another option (which works from ROM to ROM) is to use Titanium backup. This way you can restore just one or two apps at a time, or more. There is an ASUS provided App Backup, but this is only available in some custom ROM's. Revolver has it included, but Android Revolution HD does not have it included. Titanium requires root to work, but that is the only requirement. I am running an AOSP ROM that has Cornerstone built in for multi-tasking. It does not support App Backup but Titanium works perfectly since it is rooted.

    With a nandroid backup you cannot restore apps and such from one ROM to the next. Also, one thing I noticed when using nandroid is that it does not back up the kernel. Using an AOSP build and then flashing back to an ASUS based ROM it will not boot. I had to re-flash the custom ROM .zip file to restore the kernel. Best method is to flash the ROM, then do the nandroid.

    Hope this is clear enough. I have not yet had my morning coffee!
