I guess you are rooted and you mean updating a stock rom? By OTA or flashing with Odin?

1. OTA: enable root survival in the superSU Pro app and you should keep root after the update.
2. Odin firmware flash: Flash the updated rom with Mobile Odin Pro, enable everroot and the other 2 options and you also should keep root.

I'm running rooted, stock. 4.4.2

As I understand it, .3 is the current version.

I'd like to update to .3 without losing all my guff.

Make sense?
