OK, question. I had rooted my S5 with Towelroot following these instructions.

Today AT&T has released 4.4.4 and I can't stop it. I unrooted and am going to have to take the update. Can I use this same method to root again after it updates or do I have to wait for another kernel to be posted and flash that first?

If you haven't taken update yet don't you won't be able to root again

Well let me tell you what happened. I never could stop the download by doing anything. All I did was unroot with Superuser, but did not update the kernel. So it downloaded and I just told it to install because it said it would remind me in 48 hours to install.

It went through the steps and the install failed.

Went back and rooted again with Towelroot. Since it downloaded and tried to install, will it leave me alone about the update?

No it'll keep asking you to update @ted77usa knows which file to freeze using Titanium Backup and I've just tagged him so he'll be along shortly to help you. It's really easy to do
