I've got a new I9506 with 4.2.2 pre installed.
Prior to rooting it with this How-To (thanks for that) I downloaded the presented 4.3 OTA update.

Now my device is rooted and has the update ready.
It is bugging me all the time if i'd like to do the update.
Before I'd do that I would have four questions about what would happen:

1.) Will it even work?
2.) Will the device still be rooted?
3.) Will the KNOX bit stay untriggered?
4.) How do I get rid of the notification for the update, if I don't want to update?

Thanks in advance for any information.

1) You downloaded the update but unique way for install it is via STOCK RECOVERY coz u are rooted.
2) No. Your phone make factory reset when u install a update.
3) In theory yes. Its better unroot ur phone before apply the update avoid problems.
4) Deleting some apps of system/app with root explorer:

Thanks mate,

bottomline I could unroot and update with stock recovery or flash the stock 4.3 directly.
But if I want to root 4.3 afterwards i would trigger the KNOX bit anyway, right?

Regarding the files: Will try to find them, thanks!
