Ok here is the thing i have few questions about rooting my device and flashing custom kernel.

1) I want to root my nexus 5 and yes i saw the tutorials its not my first time to root a device but its first time on n5 so if i root it and install custom recovery and keep stock rom and kernel will i be able to recive ota updates without any problems? Or if i just root it and keep the stock recovery will i be able to update?

2) And my second question will franco kernel work fine on stock rom? Because if my first question is not possible then i would flash franco kernel on my device too and later when an update for stock rom comes i would flas it manually of course if that is possible too?

Thanks for help.

No because you're rooted it won't accept the ota update due to modified software.
