Default Updated to 4.4.4 while rooted

Hi I recently rooted my phone, and flashed the Franco kernel (still stock ROM). I received the 4.4.4 system update OTA notification and I downloaded/installed it. Later I realized my phone was rooted..but I checked - I still had Franco kernel, superuser, and boot loader I guess I didn't lose my root? Have I maybe messed up something else by doing this?

The .4 one seems to break the rules and apply whatever the situation.

That said, OTA isn't the best way to go under normal circumstances. You would be best flashing a stock rooted ROM
