Default [Q] Regarding xposed framework and Ota update

So I have a z ultra Google play edition
I would like to disable immersive mode in mx player
For that I need xposed framework installed
But I hear that installing it would stop Ota updates
Is it true?
If so then how do I update to Android L when it's available despite being rooted and having xposed installed

xposed <might> stop OTAs installing, just depends on what they update, and how they do it. The last two GPe OTAs have been patched based and they tend to be harder to avoid conflicts with changed system files.

I doubt that the release of L will be as a patch, TOO much will have changed I think. So I think the next GPe update will probably be a full OTA like the one from release firmware to 4.4.2.

A full OTA will tend to just look at the model number to make sure it's correct and carry on, maybe the bootloader as well?

If there is a problem with the L releas you could flash the full 4.4.2 OTA and then go from there

Might.

Remember that xposed can be removed, stock kernel flashed, BL locked to get any OTA to work as well. There is a price to pay to moding your phone - if that price is too high then don't do it.

Will simply Uninstalling Xposed Framework REVERSE the changes made when Xposed was installed ?

Yes it will. Without the modded framework all the modules can't change a thing, so basically you are stock.
Likewise, if you don't uninstall the modules and proceed to reinstall the framework, all settings will be saved...
