It is possible to "keep" root over the OTA as well but requires restoring system to stock (and rerooting), using some root keeper app in recoveryboot mode to backup and hide su, restoring recovery, taking OTA, executing hidden su, overwrite new recovery with new boot, booting into recovery bootmode, deleting /system/etc/install-recovery.sh, copy boot over recovery again, and unhiding/restoring root properly.
I just got a new phone which has build 51. I am thinking following the scheme here.
1. Root with PwnMyMoto
2. Install SuperSU Pro and turn on survival mode. Or install a Root Keeper which copy su somewhere with setuid bit on
3. Run MotoWpNoMo to get rid of WP
4. Root Keeper to temp de-root
5. OTA Update
6. Run Root Keeper to restore root.
Will these steps work? Any major risk doing it?
