Default [Q] Rooted MJ7 to take OTA?

I have root access on on MJ7.

Is there anything I need to do to keep root while taking the OTA? Or should i just ignore the OTA?

You should be able to take the ota while rooted (assuming you haven't changed anything major. I believe you may need to unfreeze any frozen stock apps). Then just re-root mk2 via the safe root method posted in the development forum.

A lot of people (myself included) have taken the OTA and not lost root. It seems like the results are all over the map. I did have Survival Mode turned on in Super SU for what that is worth.

That's what makes the difference. You won't keep root if you don't have Survival Mode turned on.
My Android devices:
vzw Samsung Galaxy S4 stock MJ7, now rooted!
Samsung Galaxy Tab 2 10.1, also stock but rooted.

VZ Droid Incredible 2 rooted but otherwise stock.
Samsung Galaxy Tab 10.1
