Tutorial [Q] Advice on installing an update on a rooted Nexus 10

I have a recently rooted N10 on Android 4.4 build KRT16S. I have had the system update to 4.4.2 in my notifications for weeks now. What I wanted to know has anyone installed this update without any problems? and am I likely to lose root? Bit clueless as to how these updates work but saying that I did manage unlock the boot loader and flash my tablet without any issues. Also if I shouldn't install the update how do remove this update. Thanks in advance folks, Phil.

The update may or may not work, it depends on how much you've touched the system files. If you've just rooted it, the update should work. If not, you can flash the factory image (except for the data partition).

You'll probably lose root, but on a unlocked bootloader, that's nothing to worry about, as you can trivially re-root it.
