Default Updating a rooted phone 4.2.2

Hello guys,
Just have a quick question I am on stock sony android 4.2.2 rooted with a locked bootloader,
I was wondering now that 4.3 is out and I use flash tool to flash the new 4.3 would that cause any issues? I know I would lose my root (is there any way to save it) or can i just flash the new update with no issues.

If you flash the FTF using flashtool it will wipe the phone completely and obviously root will be gone. AFAIK the only way to root 4.3 right now is with an unlocked bootloader. You may want to try to update without wiping, it might preserve root. The update still hasn't rolled for the C6506 so I'm unable to try anything.
