Is there any way to possibly make a rooted Nexus 5 continue to receive OTA updates from Google?
If so, please advise the best way

Thanks

If you're only rooted and haven't changed any system files you will get and be able to install ota's

So in this case I can still receive OTA updates from Google even with the bootloader unlocked and custom recovery by just leaving the stock firmware/ROM on the phone?
