I'm rooted and the update failed for me. I don't know if it was root that caused it to fail or the fact that I changed my build.prop to reflect SM-G900A. Either way, doesn't seem a big enough deal to me to "fix" it for the update.
Sent from my Samsung Galaxy SIII on AT&T having lost my IMEI only once....so far...

I'm using the KoolKit Active variant as my rom (http://forum.xda-developers.com/att-...01-07-t2809957)

I take it trying to perform this update would be a bad idea.

Just updated. New Baseband Version G870AUCU1ANG. Kernel is 3.4.0-2304514. Build Number: KOT49H.G870AUCU1ANG3. Android Version 4.4.2.

I thought this might be 4.4.4. By the way, I lost ROOT when I did this. Will have to see what is needed to restore it.

the exploit that geohot used for towelroot has now been patched, so if you apply this update you will no longer be able to root your device. unfortunately this was bound to happen, there are a couple of apks to look for the main one to freeze or delete is the localFota.apk (i think thats the correct name) this should prevent the ota from being recieved by your device. if you are running a a custom rom (either mine or nickoftyme's) the OTA should not apply. Technically it shouldnt apply at all if you are rooted in any fashion but apparently AT&T in their infinite wisdom found away to screw with us once again.

Devices:
HTC One X+ Retired
Samsung Galaxy S5 SM-G900A Root KoolKit ROM
Samsung Galaxy Tab3 7" JB4.2.2 SM-T217A Rooted S5 Tweaked

The update installed on mine, I lost root as well even though OTA Survival Mode was turned on.

On the brightside Visual Voicemail is fixed but I want my root back.
