Default Unroot, OTA then reroot?

Beans said in build 5 you will need to take the OTA before flashing as there is kernel changes.


Does anyone have confirmation of keeping the data in the rom slots?


I used kingo

So I'm asking if I unroot with kingo.
Take the update
Reroot with kingo

Re - install safestrap. Will I be able to activate and run the rom slots that i have right now with my current data on them.

Since they will be on the old kernel
Can they boot up?


Or is it just going to be all lost?

I have confirmation that kingo works.

And safestrap works.

But had anyone ran the old backups or reflashed a rom with the old kernels??
