Default [Q] Cant get OTA update in my rooted Samsung galaxy s3

I cant get official OTA update for my Samsung galaxy s3 from Android 4.1.2 to 4.3. Whenever i click system update it shows " Your system is up to date" . I know the reason for getting this problem. Because i have rooted my phone. Now can anyone help me getting ota update without losing any data and root access.

Details:
Samsung galaxy s3 GT-19300 international version
Android 4.1.2
Stock rom
Cwm recovery
Baseband version :19300xxema5
Flash counter displays '1'.
This is because of flashing chainfire root to acquire root access
Triangle away not used.

Its cause your system is modified (facepalm) ie rooted.
Just flash the latest firmware whichever you want via odin or unroot fully if you want to get ota updates

Try to use kies, sometimes it doesn't mind heaving rooted stock rom...

Otherwise, you should use Odin as suggested

Unroot the phone im not sure if it works i haven't tried it but fully unrooting it from the supersu app then do the ota update and then root it back that's the only way if you don't want to go through the whole backup processes.
Its risky though just backup your apps with tib and move your important files off the sdcard and flash via odin it shouldn't take too long
