Hi , I run custom roms on my tablets at home , but ideally I would like to leave my Note 3 able to have official updates with no need to install myself via SD card etc , but will rooting it , but no new custom rom , still allow me to have latest releases direct from Samsung .

If the answer is yes , I assume , when a new update comes out , any bloatware I have disable will be re-enabled and I might have to go and uninstall all the rubbish I did not want again....

But if the answer is NO , would I need to install CWM to update to the latest version of Samsung releases ?

My phone is still under warranty and I kinda don't want to mess with it too much , my tablets are old and 2nd user , so no worries with those

Advice please.

You can still get the update notification, but you can not update.

However you can flash the latest firmware using Kies or Odin.

it depnds on how you root... towel root and de la vega expolit system whitout changing kernels recovery or whatever so you should be able to receive OTA update , but you will problably loose root once you update.

You must do the process every time a new ota arrives to your phone
