Question [Q] Will latest Verizon security update unroot S5?

I rooted last week using towel root, yesterday I noticed an available security update from Samsung/Verizon. If I install it will this unroot my phone?

Updates usualy remove root, you could try enabling the survival mode in the superSU app if you have the paid superSU Pro. This should keep your phone rooted after an update.
USE Search: /this thread /all threads/Google before posting your question, you`re most likely not the first one having this issue

I might give it a shot, anyway to disable the update alerts?

Yup, look in system/apps and rename ‘wssyncmldm.apk’ to ‘wssyncmldm.apk.bak
