I was wondering how to install push (OTA) software updates from Samsung on rooted device, should i install them right away or i have to do something else before installing the update?

Your Help Will Be Appreciated

Thankyou mlhdk for helping


I already figured it out what todo as following:

I rooted my device again with newer version of CF-Root v6.3 as it supports Stock Firmware Updating (OTA) and rooted once more after successfully updating my device stock firmware.

Quick question, do you need to reinstall all the apps (root only apps) again after updating & reroot?

Question
Maybe you cam help with this issue:

Phone was rooted and I downloaded the firmware via OTA (I didn't know!). I re-rooted it with CF-Root 6.3, which went fine.

Now If I check for software update it says "no update available." The build though is still the old I9300XXALE8 instead of ALF6.

Is the updated firmware file saved somewhere, and if yes can I install it via CWM?

What else can I do?

Thanks
Jay
