Hello ...
About the new official update for S4 I9500XXUFNB3 I have 2 questions
1-If I have a rooted device with JB 4.3 and I flashed it , what happens ? the root access will be denied ? I think yes
and is there any root way ?
2- and this is the most important , I read that ART is not supported yet in this version , so should I wait it to be supported or it will not be available ?

Thanks

If you have a rooted device then you are not able to receive OTA updates and if you received and updated you will stuck in a bootloop so unroot then update and the reroot(not in same method)
And Yes if you update the firmware you will lose root.

if u flash a rom via Odin,and the rom is not pre rooted,then u always will loose root..
There's no need to unroot ur phone,as it automatically will loose root..
As for.rooting 4.4.2, once the rom gets out,so will its rooting methods...

if u want stable recovery,go for cwm
if u want recovery with more features,go for twrp..
What do I prefer?I prefer flashing rom via recovery,since chances of failure from that is slim..
