@guru Agreed. I did save the original hosts file so it would be easy to restore the file and set the filesystem to read-only before doing an OTA. But that too isn't a guarantee, I realise it's a bit of a gamble.

RE: mounting the root fs writable
I have the same question and concern. I want to remount writeable so I can properly edit stuff in /etc (especially the hosts file to do blocking). On the other hand, I do not want to loose the ability to do future OTA updates...
This is on the webs http://www.mibqyyo.com/en-articles/2015/11/13/ubuntu-touch-system-rw-bq-canonical-smartphones/ and it's quite detailed, but old. Has anyone here gone though this process, including remounting read-only and do an OTA update?
Any info / experience is welcome, TIA!
