Default [Q] VZW HTC One m7 android 4.4.2 sense 5.5 s-off'd & rooted. How to update?

OK So, I have a Verizon HTC One m7 running Android 4.4.2 and HTC Sense v 5.5. The phone is unlocked, S-Off'd, and rooted. Is it possible to update to 4.4.3 or 4.4.4 and Sense 6 without losing s-off and root? If so, what is the best way to do so? I've read that weaksauce, firewater, and other rooting programs do not work on the Verizon version of the m7 with the sense 6 update. I will not upgrade if it means losing control of my phone.

I know there are variations of this question on this forum. But I did not find one that answered the question explicitly for a Verizon m7 android 4.4.2 sense 5.5 s-off'd & rooted.

Thanks!

Taking the ota or using the decrypted ruu will not make you lose s-off and it will not lock the bootloader. Upgrade away and then reroot.

Thank you, Uzephi! What program should I use to re-root the phone. From what I understand the programs that worked for the previous version do not work here. I may be wrong. What do you know?
