Default [Q] Updating Rooted & Deodexed z1

Hello,

I own an Xperia Z1.

I recently Rooted my phone, deodexed it and installed a second recovery for the sole purpose of installing features such as the 120fps slow-mo and 4K camera apps. I did not unlock the bootloader, however.

My question is how am I going to install future stock updates/software versions on the phone? Will I be able to simply flash them with flash tool (with "DATA" unchecked) or do I have to do it another way?

Thank you in advance for your answers.

Yes, flash a FTF using flashtool. You answered your own question

Ok, I just did these modifications and did not know, so I wanted to make sure. So basically after I flash a new stock firmware using flashtool, all the modifications (the rooting, the dedexing, the recovery, and any new apps I have installed such as the Z2 camera suite) will remain intact?

No, because you just flashed a new system
You will have to do it again
