So I'm planning on rooting my LG G3 soon, (using PurpleDrake I suppose because TowelRoot doesn't work), and I will be installing Xposed after that. I will be keeping my stock recovery as well.

I want to keep my ability to update OTA however, and I know that there are issues with updating while rooted.

As such, will I be able to a) uninstall Xposed and then b) use SuperUser to hide root / or unroot somehow, and then c) accept the OTA

To make sure that no system files are touched, I plan on freezing any unwanted apps through TB (and unfreezing them before the OTA)

Will this work? Is it possible to unroot without having to wipe data?

I don't have a G3 yet to verify..but we use 'boot unlocker' app to toggle root and tamper flag on N5.

Thanks for the responses guys! I wish that there was at least a small OTA update so that the people that are already rooted could actually test this.
