If I go back to the stock recovery from TWRP will I still be rooted? I'd like to go back to stock recovery for the remote-wipe capabilities of android device manager.

Thanks

I don't personally know the method, but yes you can restore the stock recovery and still be rooted. Its on the forum here somewhere.

Just know that feature will put a drain on your battery life. Just a heads up.

Sent from my N5, N7, Moto X, G Tab 3 or S2.....

take the recovery image from the fxz plug your phone into your pc with usb cable. Put the phone into fast boot open a command prompt to where you have the recovery.img and type into the command prompt.... fastboot flash recovery recovery.img and you have the stock recovery back.

I know how to restore the stock recovery. Just curious if I will still be rooted after doing so.

Yes you will remain rooted. I'm running mine that way.
