Downgrade to 4.2.2 root it and try to update ota to 4.3. This way you should keep root.
If ota doesn't work and your bootloader is locked, you'll have to stay at 4.2.2, as long as you need root

Root 4.2.2 then install a recovery then flash a 4.3 rom, that way u will have root on 4.3.

There are at least 3 prerooted stock 10.4.1.B.0.101 roms in the development section.
Either unlock your bootloader like I told you before, or flash a prerooted rom. Those are your choices.
