Default [Q] TWRP for N7 2013 question - does it prevent OTA update?

I rootd my N7 2013 LTE but did not install TWRP. If I install TWRP, will this prevent future OTA pushed by Google?

If yes, how do I UNINSTALL TWRP? Will I have to wipe my device in order to do so?

I am not planning to install custom ROM, just trying to access TWRP to do tablet and dalvick cache wipe, since I have issues with thousands of deleted_wakelock and suspend_backoff. Per this guide on wakelocks, I have to do the wipe.

Crap, I don't want to wipe my device just to uninstall TWRP, given I have stock ROM.

Any other way to wipe cache without TWRP?

No it will not prevent an OTA update, however you will have to flash it yourself, just let the update download, reboot into TWRP, navigate to the OTA zip which will be in /cache directory on your device, and flash as normal, clear dalvik and caches, and reboot.
Kenneth, what is the frequency? Teach a man to set a fire, and he will stay warm for a night. Set a man on fire, and he will stay warm for the rest of his life.
