Default [Q] Updating

Once rooted should I disable updates or should I continue to accept Amazon updates?

I'd like to believe the updates will improve the OS but I'm not sure at all if that's actually the case.

There is a nifty trick, the app "Android Firewall" can be used, you can use the android cowboy website to find out how it works.

I concur. Firewall does nothing to block updates.

Nope. BUT if you have SS instaled from both stock & working rom slot, it cannot complete the update. That means you reboot into SS & just reflach older bin (complete bin, not the stripped version from Hash) & then flash supersu & update your build.prop to reflect the new version.

So basically you're saying, if I'm on stock rom and have SS installed and my device gets updated automatically. I can still go back to SS and restore it to older version and get my root access?
