I can confirm that ota rootkeeper was able to retain root with this latest ucama4 update. stock rom, stock recovery, rooted.

I did have to uninstall/reinstall supersu though...since after the update (and rootkeeper root restore) it spit out an error message every time I tried to temp hide root with supersu. After a reinstall everything is back to normal.

Same here. Ran Odin and re-rooted without issue.

Just checked, the unlock still works if you did the unlock before the latest update. I am on AT&T and my T-Moobil sim still worked after the update.

S your saying that we should use Voodoo OTA RootKeeper to avoid unrooting through the OTA process? I would hate using the long method (Odin) to root if i lost it because this update would get rid of exynos abuse

I have deleted the ATT software update app to avoid dealing with this.
The security patch has been already rolled into the OC kernels used in many of current ROMs and is not needed.
For those of us who use custom ROMs, why bother with ATT update anyway?
