Will the update switch us back to s-on or will it stay s-off?

It will stay S-Off after 4.4 update if your phone is S-Off at the moment

Yea from what I understand no update will turn s-on however you will be unrooted. Simply reroot through twrp and you'll be fine.

Just a word of caution, I know from experience on several other devices that Verizon usually uses OTA's to lock bootloaders and obviously unroot. Grant it, these phones have been mostly Samsung devices, but I'm just saying be careful. You don't want to update and find out your stuck for some reason.. Had it happen... Not fun... Not saying it will happen this way with our Max though either.

If somehow they relocked your boot loader you can use the ruu mode flashable twrp in my ruu thread to flash a custom recovery and reroot so you can unlock again.

I'm sure you're right, I guess I'm just nervous about updates from Verizon after seeing what they did to Samsung owners.... Hopefully that never happens here though. . Thanks again for your effort and work with our device.
