It all depends on when Google will release it. But don't expect it any earlier than January. If I had to guess, I would say sometime in February

I am excited about Android L as well and cant wait for it lol.

As to the Op's question, I am a bit more cautious about taking ota updates some. If I choose to update I usually unroot, and undo any changes I've made to the system such as xposed modules and xposed framework, and revert any build prop changes, then take the OTA.

[QUOTE=Skizzy034;54634038]To take an OTA after rooting all you need to do is unroot through SuperSU and take the update. If you don't see the update after unrooting, do a factory restore. Its simple. You don't have to flash a stock firmware to update.[COLOR="Silver"]

So if i have a modified stock rom right now i should be able to simply unroot and then take the update even though i am missing files from the original factory rom? I don't think i've ever taken an OTA in my life since i always flash through recovery.
