If you want to keep root, don't update to today's MF3 OTA as it break motochopper exploit and prevents Rootkeeper from working

Some members have sacrificed themselves:

Anybody knows if it break Loki too?

It has been well documented that trying to ODIN back to MDL does not work and causes an immediate fail

If you wish to have the new features then run GoldenEye ROM, a fantastic i9505 MF8 based ROM that runs smooth as melted butter. It also has all latest MF3 additions such as App2SD, audio flickering and sms fix

If you can't root, you can't install custom recovery. Can't install custom recovery, can't loki...

If using customer recovery, I don't think the update will apply.

The question should be answered once root is achieved.

It might break motochopper, but what tells you that once another root method is found, loki will still work? that was my question

It's not going to break loki I don't think, it has KNOX but thats a seperate bootloader that allows apps to run with full security, our phone doesnt boot into Knox mode.

It was made specifically for the active. It will not run on other devices. You would have to modify the apk or make a root method off of it
