Default Safe to OTA update my rooted G2?

Hello all,

I have a G2 running that I haven't touched, except for rooting. It's running Android 4.2.2, kernel 3.4.0-perf-g7c2d0a2, build JDQ39B, software version VS98011A. I'm running stock (just as it came), no ROMs, nothing else, TWRP not installed.

If I do the OTA update that started popping up a couple of days ago (I would like to update), will I screw my phone up? Will I screw up my root? I am most worried about losing my tethering....

Thank you for any help

Most often..No. Some people get lucky, but it isn't recommended.
