I am currently running 4.3 root SPH-L720, when I try to install the OTA update it says it fails but can work and lose root.

I want to know if go with the update it will unroot, and/or wipe phone or brick.

You have to be on a stock recovery even then it might fail if you have custom apps or mods. Best thing is to Odin NAE tar and re root.
