Default [Q] Upgrade 4.3 with root

My bank has released a new app which is only available on DVU1ANE1.

What's the best way to get this update with a rooted device? Do I simply download the firmware, remove recovery and flash SuperSU?

Or is there a better way to do this?

Surely there is someone who knows the answer to this seemingly simple request?

Doesn't seem very simple at all. I don't understand the question...
Remember to 'Thank Me' if I was able to help.

I have a rooted 4.4 S5. I want to update to the latest firmware available, but need root.

Flash a Rom based on that firmware?

I like stock, so it wasn't an option. Needless to say, the ROM selection for the S5 is rather low when it comes to quality. I prefer to stick with a stock ROM.

Anyway, I flashed the official ROM, los root and used Geohots Towel Root. Worked a charm on my G900i.
