Default [Q] Use odin to upgrade stock 4.3 to 4.4?

I got a rooted SM-P605 runing stock 4.3 and i was wondering if i could use Odin to install the 4.4 update and not have to whipe the tablet so i dont need to spend hours reconfigure/reinstall and try to restore backups.

And would root be saved after an update by Ofin?

Yes upgrading via odin will not wipe your data.

No, root will be gone, you will have to re-root
