Default [Q] Impact of Root/ROM on Sasmung OS Updates & App Purchases

Will rooting stop the ability to do Samsung OS updates or Samsung purchases from their app store?

From what I've found; Yes, rooting disables the OS update. You can use the Wanam Xposed module to re-enable them, but I'm not entirely sure it will flash properly.
I can't speak for the Samsung app store as I don't use it.

I will stop updates from Samsung but when updates come out you'll just have to flash update with Odin. If you search around forum you can find out how. It's very easy to do. I don't think it will mess up nothing with Samsung store. I don't use it and got rid of it but I did have it on after rooting and everything was fine.

Pretty sure you won't be able to use Samsung video Hub because of Copy Protection after root

Rooted and I downloaded a few movies from Samsung store, they have a weird format (non standard format)... Works fine. Samsung store no problem.
Also downloaded movies from the hub, again no problem...
You can't get OTA updates but you can download the roms and flash via ODIN (if you have Knox warranty void 0x0 there's no problem). This won't trip Knox warranty void...
