thanks for the helps so far and it went well on my xplay,
then it came up my mind this way,
if my play's rooted, can i get an update from pc companion later??
considering there's an upcoming Ice Cream update

i rooted my play using the app this thread provided, so my bootloader unlocked??
i don't know, lack of experience
and i also have this issue. ever since i rooted my play, each time i reboot the phone, some settings is kinda back to manual setting, like i use this Go Keyboard, and it'll turn to manual international keyboard everytime the phone reboot.
do you know how to fix it?

if you used the app, you didn't unlocked your bootloader.
are you using any other launcher, which android version and build number do you have
go to settings -> about phone
if you have android 2.3.2 or 2.3.3 that could be the issue, it was solved with the latest updates, but if you have the verizon version (r800x) then there's nothing to do

i'm using the original xplay launcher, i have GO launcher though.
i'm pretty sure i'm at the latest one, 2.3.4 and 4.0.2.A.0.42
is the problem coming from the apps i downloaded since i root my play??

I'd like to root my "live with walkman" so i can install firewall app to block apps using internet. Easy rooting toolkit looks like the best script. There is also the Easy rooting toolkit (v1.0) UNROOTING SCRIPT.
Being new to smartphones i have a few questions i hope can be answered.
1) Can you install system updates after root?
2) Can you unroot after system updates?
3) If i do a backup then root the device. Do i have to unroot the device before restoring original backup?
4) With a backup done after root, can that backup be restored if the device has since been unrooted?
fyi: My phone hasn't had any updates installed. Current build is 4.0.1.A.0.283
