Default OTA update / Rooted


I have a question about my Nexus 7. I would like to root it but I would like to know if I will still receive OTA update from Google? Of what I understood, if your device is rooted you won't receive OTA update? If you don't receive OTA update, would it be possible to update it manually? I want to continue to use the stock OS but I want to enjoy the “root” features…

You will continue to receive OTA updates if you stay on the stock ROM.
I would highly recommend that you get yourself acquainted with Linux so that you can better understand root access and android in general!
Xda guides and forums are great places to learn and it would be a shame not to read them to exploit them to the fullest before posting!
Hope that helped!
