just an fyi this would be better asked in q&a section as this is a dev section. if you are rooted it will most likely not update and if it does you will lose root

Always read the OP's of a thread and the last 2 pages before asking questions, unless there has been an update - in which case, read the last 5 pages!

Dude don't give out false info please...rooting does not, in itself, affect any otas. And its a nexus, simply reroot once the ota has installed. OP, go to the thread RootSU mentioned. Its all in there.

Insert witty, pithy, androidy statement here

not false info but sorry if i did not articulate it well enough, i did not say it wont receive the ota, but meant it may not install, i have had a nexus device that was rooted with recovery NOT install the ota. anyways if you are rooted you can just wait for a stock rom to be released in the threads and flash it, our devs here are usually pretty quick at getting stock rooted ota's out.

Root is one thing. Recovery is another. Anyway all covered in sticky thread. No need to repeat
