Default [Stock Recovery] Use 4 OTA

Here is the stock recovery that was pulled from the newest ota.

This can be flashed with fastboot and the latest ota can be installed as normal. You can then flash TWRP or CLOCKWORKMOD recovery back when finished.

DONATE TO ME
I THINK THIS IS WHAT I NEED!

Someone help please! Lol.

I'm currently S-OFF and rooted on stock rom. I want to remove S-OFF and root if possible and update to the latest OTA. I am also using TWRP as custom recovery. Can I flash this and then update via the OTA and accomplish what I want?!

Leave S-Off, the OTA neither affects or is affected by the S-Off.

You just need the stock recovery to flash.

Yes.. u don't need to take it back to s-on.

Get back to stock Rom (may be on it now if you haven't flashed any roms)
adb reboot bootloader
fastboot flash recovery "name of file".img
reboot and flash the ota from settings menu

Does this affect root? Or if I flash the stock recovery will I be able to get the OTA update with root?

If you read this thread, or any of the other threads here regarding this, you'd have your answer. I'm not doing your reading for you.
