Default Hypothetical Question

If one was to have SuperSu Pro with OTA survival mode, and update to KK would it work? Has anyone tried this?

Just a thought.

Don't quote me on this, but I'm pretty sure the update will still fail around 27%. There was something floating around here that said rooting the phone removes a file or something that the update looks for before allowing it to completely install. Obviously you have to be rooted to use SuperSU, so it most likely won't work.

We have people who managed to get it to update while rooted in survival mode it took root but left supersu in the system now unable to delete or use

yep, i did this and now have supersu in /system/app and su in /system/xbin, but root doesn't work and i can't get rid of them. the only real downside i've found so far is Isis Mobile wallet thinks the phone is rooted and doesn't work.. but i don't use Isis anyway.
