Default I Rooted my S4 - how do I make sure OTA doesn't unroot it?

Hi,

I just rooted my AT&T Galaxy S4. I used the method with TowelRoot. Everything seems to be good and as far as I can tell I am rooted. My concern is that if AT&T sends an update it will unroot my phone. Is that true? How can I prevent it?

Also, what are some things that I can now do with my rooted phone? I am using Tasker and have a little more power there. I might put on CyanogenMod, but not just yet.

Thank you for the suggestions.

no time to research that atm

but, use Titanium BackUp and delete apps that have fota and fwupdate or fw upgrade. that should do it.

there's a specific list somewhere
ATT Samsung Galaxy S4/Rooted/TWRP 2.5.0.2/Wanam Xposed, or Gravity Box/Long Time MultiRom Flasher/Waiting For The Note 4--The Game Changer
