Default [Q] OTA update with a rooted NON custom rom?

Hi everyone,

I rooted my Sprint Samsung Galaxy Note 2 a few months back with ODIN I believe. I have had superuser access and can wirelessly tether, increase volume, remove camera click etc.... Love it, all this on Android 4.1. I never flashed any custom rom, just rooted.

Now 4.3 is being pushed to my phone, is it safe to install it? what happen if I do, do I lose root, brick the phone etc? Or, does everything stay the same but now I have 4.3 and not 4.1

As a backup I have a Sprint Note 3 not even opened just in case things go wrong. I know volume is low on Note 3 so in advance any hacks for note 3?

But for now, focus s on the OTA for Sprint Galaxy note 2 and any adverse side effects of accepting the OTA

Thanks,

Jeff

Hi Jeff,
1. It is not safe to install official OTA to your rooted 4.1(only by Kies).
2. You will lose root or you will stay in bootloop.
3. Usually we flash custom rom using twrp(cwm) or ODIN.
