Default Should I block OTA update? How?

Got the wife a Tab 3 (10.1) for Christmas. On boot up it wanted to perform an OTA updated. I set to ignore then proceeded to root/adblock/etc..

Should I take the OTA update or disable it altogether? If so, how? I use OTA blocker on my S3, but it looks like it is just for the S3.

I probably will never replace the ROM since it is the wife's, but definitely want to maintain root access and make sure any root/ROM exploits do not get patched.

It is OK to update. You can still flash a custom recovery and root. One warning is to avoid the decrap script. Read all the comments on that thread in the 10.1 dev threads. -- Bud
