Angry [Q] Update after rooting

Dear gurus,

I'm new to Galaxy family, I have a small question. Provided that I have root access for S5 and using Stock ROM. Am I still able to OTA/Kies update?

The reason I want to root is to get rid of SamSung bloatwares and use custom kernel.

Thanks

No. You have to download firmware/rom updates then flash them to your phone now.

Using the phone for updates after rooting will cause you to lose all root access and then would just cause more problems. As stated before, you'll have to manually apply them once rooted.
