I keep getting the "update to the new software message." how do I get this to stop showing up? Obviously, I don't want to install if I'm going to lose root but that message is Obnoxious.

If you worried about the warranty then you shouldn't root the non dev edition.

What was your process when upgrading? Disable xposed, accept ota, then re-enable xposed? Assuming that you did not remove any apps?

Yes, that's exactly what I did. I uninstalled xposed, unfroze the bloat, root survival checked and took the ota.

Keep in mind, that since you can't downgrade your ROM version once on 4.4.2, your best chance for root on 4.4.2 with locked bootloader is to stay on 4.4 and wait to see what happens.

OTA app frozen on my devices now. Thank you for spelling out this obvious step.

I wonder if a device that is rolled back (RSD) will ota to 4.4 or 4.4.2... I would think this may provide a path back to 4.4 for someone that takes the 4.4.2 OTA and decides the prefer 4.4.

I'm also wondering if OTG is fixed on 4.4.2 (works on GS4 4.4.2 TW).

YOU CAN NOT DOWNGRADE From 4.4.2 to 4.4 or below. It will brick the device. There is a big thread about it.

OTA root survived
Good morning all. Mistakingly I accepted OTA for 4.4.2. I was sidetracked by my little one. Motox VZ, stock rooted. Somehow root survived. First boot appeared all was lost however upon second boot it was back. WiFi tether testested, root checker and tibu all work. Whew, got lucky. I don't think most have been so lucky.

Everyone has been "so lucky." It's not like the software update has some subjective process to it.

Everyone retains root with this upgrade, they just lose R/W to /system, which substantially impacts the usefulness of root.
