Default [Q] [SOLVED] updating default apps

hey all, i have a query, last week i ran an RUU 1.29.707.4 on my phone and it installed some default apps on my phone like 7Digital , now i understand that these default apps are necessary for applying OTA updates as OTA checks md5 sum of these default apps. but today, i checked PlayStore and there was an update available for the 7Digital app so i went ahead and updated it. My question is this : can this updated 7Digital app affect OTAs by failing the md5 checksum or does the md5 remain the same even after updating the app? i just updated the app via playstore, didnt rename, remove or move it. Thanks in advance

updating apps won't stop OTA. you can even add some apps if you like too.

and please next time, make up your mind if you want to PM who knows how many people OR open a thread at the same time, double posting is really not recommended
