I rooted old firmware by DooMLorD easy tool kit, then received OTA update to the newest version (.254), updated it and root access was still there, so you doesn't lose root when updating via OTA (in most cases). As for 4.3 I don't know, we will see.

According to budyz on the first posts of this thread, the only way to keep root will be to flash the official 4.3 rom. Because DoomLord found an exploit on the old jb 4.1 firmware. It will be perfect but really surprising if he find a new exploit in the 4.3, plus it will take more time.
