Default Root will brick my phone after OTA?

Hi guys, im from latin america and i own a d805 LG G2, i have rooted my phone but i havent installed a custom recovery or a custom rom or anything, just rooted and uninstalled a few apps that came with the carrier. My question is, when the update shows up, it will brick my device because it is rooted? Or do i only lose root acces? I am a little confused at that, sorry for my english, thanks.

You can't get ota updates if your rooted. It'll say device has been modified. If you really want the update you can try this http://forum.xda-developers.com/show....php?t=2432476 and after you'll have to re-root again

Thats for LG G2? And all these is necessary? Or can i just factory reset in the stock recovery to erase the root and get the apos again? Or it wont change anything? Thanks

you need to go back to stock rom in order for OTA to work properly

Evolution of my Android:-
Sammy SII < Note N7K < Note II < SIV < Note N9K5 < LG D802

Current ROM:-
Cloudy Stock 1.3 with twrp 2.7 enhanced with SimpleKernel v4

A factory reset won't erase root. A better way of restoring would probably be this http://forum.xda-developers.com/show....php?t=2432476 Its still pretty detailed but those are your only options. Its like removing a tattoo

Is his device different from ATT Version? I've got ATT D800. Was on D80010o. Rooted. Updated to KitKat D80020c and Root remained. Maybe non-ATT devices are different though.
