I've got a Droid RAZR M running rooted 4.1.2 Jellybean.
Since the system partition has been modified, the phone can't install the KitKat update.
My questions are:
If I update to KitKat, can I still root?
If so, how can I flash this back to the stock image? (And can that be done without losing my application data?)

1. Yes, if you update to KitKat you can root and, if you haven't, unlock your bootloader as well.
2. Flash the KitKat factory firmware with RSD Lite.
3. I dont believe the official sbf erases data, at least it doesn't show in the xml.
