Question [Q] AT&T OTA update location

So I rooted my phone and am getting alerts about an OTA update. When it rebooted into recovery, I wasn't sure where the OTA update file was located, so couldn't install it. So my questions are:

1) Where is that location?
2) Would installing it via recovery wipe my phone given the non-standard method of installation?
3) Is it likely I will have to re-root when done?
4) I already have Titanium Backup to restore stuff. Am I better off just grabbing a custom ROM ?

Sorry for the n00bish questions.

1. /sdcard/downloads
2. No
3. No
4. Only if you want more features than stock offers. Personal preference.

That download location isn't right. Where else could it get put?

You said that the first time, but it doesn't show up there. I guess I will just find a ROM.
