Default If KNOX tripped = no more updates?

I tried to searched for this but couldn't find the answer, so here we go...

If I root my tablet (WiFi only), KNOX will be tripped. But say I want to unroot, so I restore the original ROM via Odin.

At this point, KNOX is still tripped, BUT, the tablet is no longer rooted and back to the original ROM. Can I still get software updates in this case? 4.4.3, 4.4.4, etc...etc..

KNOX have nothing to do with OTA updates. Simple yes.

Thanks for the clarification!

Since rooting prevent OTA, I want to make sure KNOX won't do the same.

I wish Samsung have a non-KNOX version for their devices aimed at the consumer.

Besides, you can always update via Odin.
