Default S-OFF & OTA

If I flash the stock recovery, and re-lock the bootloader while having S-OFF could I take any OTA update, and still be able to unlock the bootloader and root? Would it keep S-OFF?

There is no need to take the OTA if you are S-OFF.
Then again there is NEVER a need to take an OTA.

Alrighty, so your a developer, how long do you think it would take to make the firmware available for us non-ota takers? I am just having troubles out of the 4.3 update. Thanks

Usually, after an update rolls out, someone puts out a flashable for s-off users the same day, maybe the next day, as soon as they have the download zip.
