The question is (Since it seems to be breaking roots here and there) were you able to do the update without any problems and how did you install it?
I purposely allowed the NE9 OTA update to install knowing I would loose root access. To regain root access I did the following.
1. Allow KOT49H.G900VVRU1ANE9 update to install.
2. Enable Settings
> Developer options
> USB debugging
3. Enable Settings
> Unknown sources
4. Power off GS5 (Galaxy S 5).
5. Power on GS5 into Odin Mode
(press and hold Home
key, Volume Down
key, and Power
key until GS5 powers on and displays warning screen, then press Volume Up
6. Use Odin3
(installed on PC) to install old rootable NCG kernel.
7. Download, install, and run TowelRoot
app to gain root access.
8. Download, install, and run SuperSU Pro
9. Power off GS5.
10. Power on GS5 into Odin Mode
11. Use Odin3
again to install new NE9 kernel.
You will now have root access even though you are running the new unrootable NE9 kernel.
(recommend; you can use SuperSU or SuperUser instead)
