Question [Q] a stupid question about rooting

As i know that 4.4.3 is releasing soon

My N5 is root, and my question is:

Do i need to unroot (or lock the bootloader) before upgradr to 4.4.3?

Thanks

Better off unrooting bud. Easier in the long run.

Nothing is simpler than just flashing the files when available with fast boot. Its usually only a couple days til files are out...or even a flashable stock version.

Need help with poor battery life on the N5...or any device really? Lots of info in first 4 posts! >>>>
