If I root my Motorola Droid Razr M, can I still get O/S upgrades? If so, will they just happen automatically? Or do I need to install them (and if so where might I find instructions for that) ?

Whether you still can update to "official versions" via or otherwise, depends on multiple things. Basically, the manufacturer might include a check whether the currently installed ROM is valid -- in this case, an update will fail as you changed the /system partition during . If no such check takes place, an update might succeed -- but you may have lost access (if the update replaced the /system partition; tools like OTA RootKeeper might prove helpful in those cases).
