My E975 is rooted (not boot unlocked), I can download this update and the device restarts, then after a short time an error message comes up, the device restarts and loads as normal, then a message pops up that states root suspected, so cannot update

This appears to be a protective mechanism against rooting, so updates are only available for unrooted devices

Now, the solution seems simple, I unroot, update and then root again, however, I suspect it's not this simple

Can someone please advise if there is a workaround or would the simple option work?

As I don't want to lose root

Thank you

This solution has been suggested - http://forum.xda-developers.com/show....php?t=2625044

Which seems like much work for a small update

Is there any other method?

Current Software Version: Stock JB 4.1.2 (E97510h-EUR-XX)
I've unrooted and made sure there is no trace left, have restarted the device, then downloaded the V10J update via OTA, ran the update process, got to the update screen and at 3% progress get error 0x13E, device restarts and there is another error message that states:

- Software update, problem with installation


Have tried to update OTA 3 times and the issue is the same each time, I wonder if this is the same issue as last year on the AT&T version:

- http://forum.xda-developers.com/show....php?t=2223994
- http://forum.xda-developers.com/show...2084211&page=2

Also on other versions too:

- http://forum.xda-developers.com/show....php?t=2051819
- http://forum.xda-developers.com/show....php?t=2289930


If anyone can help or hopefully explain what the error 0x13E is cause by/relates to?

Please reply here and it will be much appreciated

Current Software Version: Stock JB 4.1.2 (E97510j-EUR-XX)
Gave up on OTA, soft bricked my device shortly after and used the KDZ Updater method from the FAQ (http://forum.xda-developers.com/show....php?t=2434917), which updated my device, so I'm going to leave it there for now

Also, if anyone is wondering (like I was), yes, stock JB 4.1.2 (E97510j-EUR-XX) can be rooted via Framaroot, using the gandalf exploit and I had no related issues

Thank you
