Default Root Keeper for Kit Kat Update?

I just got an update notification on my rooted note 3. Last time this happened it eventually just decided to update all by itself without my intervention. Will root keeper or the superuser ota saver save my root?

Will the update even go through this time around with a rooted phone?

Thanks.

That's actually not true. I got the update even though I was rooted, and so did half the people on this forum. No disrespect.

I guess i should have said im kingo rooted stock with some uninstalled/modified system apps and the update fails at 25% on my device.. Some people have not done as much with their devices as i have..

Follow the instruction and rename those files.

Then use Titanium Backup to freeze AT&T Software update. I've done those two things and so far I have not received any update notifications.
