Default update to .402 without losing root?

Hello, Ive just rooted my z2 with towelroot on .55 and installed the xposed framework. I received the ota update from .402, is it possible to update without losing root? Like with superSU's survival mode?
Already thank you

With OTA survival it should Survive the OTA update

Try it, if you lose root you can simply reroot easily enough

Thanks, but should I delete the xposed framework? They say that xposed framework screws the update up.

Unlock bootloader -> Flash .402 FTF with flashtool -> Flash insecure kernel via fastboot

Even if you lose the root... I think root for .402 is out already.

Is that with a locked or unlocked bootloader?
>Phones: Xperia Arc S(unrooted) > Xperia Z2 (rooted, locked bootloader)
>Tablets: Nexus 7 2012 (flashed to death) > Nexus 7 2013@franco kernel, 4.4.3(rooted, unlocked) Galaxy tab 2 7.0@ paranoid android, 4.4.2(rooted, unlocked)
>Gadgets: Chromecast > lots of kickstarter tech

should work regardless of the bootloader status. ie. you don't need to unlock bootloader.
