the only way to update is to have an unmodified phone: no custom recovery(or else your phone will bootloop), no mods, no modded system apps, no xposed/modules but if you get the suspected of rooting the only way to ota is to go back to stock with the guide in the general section hoping the ota appears again

yes that is true so you can backup your apps with titanium and then after you get the update and root restore the apps/data

well that may/may not work, the moment you root it triggers a flag in the persist folder and I am not sure if just unrooting removes this flag

What does this update do? If its knock code, i am not interested in. For immersive mode, i have alreday "App settings" Its not worth all the hassle.

Well I don't know what it brings and if says app enhancements then it probably just updates some apps
