Just verifying that at least at this time, it seems that the regular Cupcake 
update being pushed down by T-Mobile removes all access to root?

If so, I assume that gain access to root would require either reflashing to an 
earlier "non-cupcake" version or one of the modified images floating around.

 Yes that's correct, if you have rooted your phone and install the
official T-Mobile update, you'll lose root.

I installed the T-Mobile cupcake update without root to begin with.
Just put it on the SD card, name it '' and reboot, holding
down the home button.  Super easy.

The update is available here, among other places:

2. Share worldlists across different IMEs

Afaik, each IMEs must provide its own worldlist for word completion.
This is a waste of time for developers and of disk space.

Is it possible to use a wordlist that is shared across the IMEs?
Does this exist already?

Thank you.
