I only have stock right now, unrooted 4.1.1. So, I would update using the OTA update 4.1.2 and then root, correct?
This method works cause our bootloader isn't locked. It flashes a modified recovery them flashes supersu zip and then re flashes stock recovery. This should work on all future ota updates unless something drastically changes.

I thought it was implied by the way things were said in the OP & have installed several OTA updates then used this to get root back. And here again with MA7 it works again. Great job.

Default Systems folder?

How can I access the systems folder? What do I need to do?

You need to be rooted. Then, install a file explorer app (ES is is my favorite and it's free) and give it su permission and navigate down to "/" and you'll see the system folder...

I used this root method, and it worked beautifully. I was wondering how I would go about adding a custom recovery to this now? Any help would be great.

I can't seem to find a kernal with it packed in, I have mobile odin and am familiar with odin (coming from E4GT).

Or, just download the GooManager app (free from the Play Store), open it, click the menu button on your phone and select "Install OpenRecoveryScript", tap "Yes" on the Confirm screen and the latest TWRP recovery will be automatically installed on your phone. By the way, on this phone, kernels and recoveries are not tied together...

Default Update supersu?

Just rooted MA7, worked perfectly!! Once it rebooted, it is already saying that there is an update to supersu, is it safe to update that?
