No.

It uses a toolkit. Have you used a toolkit before?

Do that then. Don't expect any more help from us though. If you refuse to do it properly, you're on your own.

System, boot and radio are all that's needed. Don't even really need to do radio.

Multiple people in this thread already pointed you in the right direction. The problem with toolkits is that you don't actually learn the process and if something goes wrong you will come directly back here like many other people freaking out. Believe me, I have used toolkits before on my S3 and it was much more rewarding learning to do it manual. This way you might be able to fix whatever is wrong with your phone in case you mess up.

Edit: Also, I'm assuming you used a toolkit to root your device/install custom recovery in the first place. Otherwise you would have found the process in the links provided to be very simple. All you do is uninstall xposed framework within the app which reverts all your previous settings, then flash the OTA. Afterwards if you lost your custom recovery (which I didn't for some reason) you flash that followed by the superSU.zip.

Exactly! Fastboot is a basic MUST know for all root users. Using Toolkits leads to not knowing these basic principles. This in turn leads to spoonfeed threads like this which isn't fair on us.

Added now that we even tried to correct the OP's "error" by teaching fastboot yet he still refuses to learn. Meaning any further help required will be a drain on this forum. Many of us won't spoon feed someone who is unwilling to learn. This unwillingness is against the spirit of xda, which is a development forum, not a "cool my phone" forum.

Well, I'm out of this and all future threads. Won't help people who refuse to follow advice, refuse to learn and constantly after the quickest fix.
