Hi all.

Considering to root with the almighty great Towelroot method and I have 2 rather quick questions..
1. Will rooting prevent any further OTA updates from Samsung.
2. Will flashing the stock AP firmware again via Odin restore the device in its original state (without root access)?

Thanks in advance!

Rooting will prevent OTA unless you either do a full unroot or Odin
flash the official stock firmware for your phones version and model.

Odin flashing original stock firmware will restore the phone to stock
without root. Just be sure that you do a full wipe including factory
reset in recovery before odin flashing.

After doing the above you will be able to get the OTA uprades.

Good luck!
