But you still have S-Off so after you do this you can then flash fastboot twrp recovery correct? Then from there you can install any custom rom and flash again root and be back to where you were but with all updated firmwares and what not?

Just want to make sure all my bases are covered and do this correctly? Thanks!

Can i do this? Do a TWRP nandroid backup of where i'm at right now (viper rom 1.3.1, tweaks, etc), then flash this stock backup, get the Verizon OTA update to so i'm all updated. Then I just need to flash TWRP again, then i can restore my backup i did before the update? This sound right? I'm S-Off.

Yes that is correct. I'm still S-off and was able to flash TWRP which allowed me to flash root.zip. I'm still on stock though because I haven't decided what to flash next. These updates are coming too fast and I don't feel like fresh installing and setting up every time an update comes out. Hope this helps.

Downloaded file...thx for the help. Placed in internal storage using ES File Explorer. Unzipped file. Rebooted into TWRP recovery, did a factory reset, hit restore and it's blank. Is there a certain file within the internal storage that the backup needs to be placed?

If it's a constant throughout the TWRP Recoveries I'd try:

/TWRP/Backups/*Possibly_Phone_Serial.Number*/Date_or_Name_of_Bakup/ then your backup files in here.

Thanks for the quick reply. It's still blank. I'm going to try to change the folder name with the serial number to my serial number. Maybe that's the issue.

Edit:Editing the folder with the serial number to the serial number of my phone did the trick. Thanks for the back up and the help!
