Was the last update pushed to your rooted nook?

More detail below, but straight to the question - who here was rooted when 1.1.0 came out, did not apply the tweak to stop the update, and actually had 1.1.0 OTA pushed out on top of rooted 1.0.1? 

 

================

Background

-------------------------

 

I rooted at 1.0.0. after seeing a YouTube video of a rooted device.  Unfortunately I just got everything the way I liked it rooted and 1.0.1 was pushed out two days later and cratered my nook.    Not to worry though, just did the two-step factory reset documented online and everything worked perfect again, all my books were available again. 

 

After installing 1.0.1 I rooted again, then after signing into market, I could see all the apps I had purchased (both on phone and on NC) and downloaded those.  So all I really lost was content I have copied over (files and presentations - which I had a copy of on PC), and free apps that I loaded, I just had to reload those.  

 

I DID NOT apply the tweak to stop 1.1.0 from applying.   Figured I'd ride the update wave, see what happened.  It was never pushed to my system, and I was on wireless every day.   I wondered if maybe BN did some check to see if you were rooted and didn't push the update?  

 

I have high-speed FIOS and a good wireless N router, even like to sit up at BN with my nook and coffee, so I'm sure the issue wasn't my connection.
