Hi all,
I am using XT1643 indian version. I have successfully rooted it using TWRP recovery. However, I haven't changed the rom. Today, it is showing OTA update of security fixes. Should I update it or is there any particular method for updating or should I ignore the update.

Thanks.

If FlashFire doesn't work, you should first unroot your device, uninstall xposed if you already installed it, also remember to use stock kernal after that.. flash stock recovery than update via ota. Let us update what happen :)

Edit :- I tried my self
1. unistalled xposed
2. un rooted
3. wiped all data, dalvik cache, and other stuf..exclude system
4. rebooted
5. flashed stock recovery
6. reboot again
7. download ota
8. device reboot again in stock recovery
9. And failed to update :(
10. So we cant update our phone unless new updated stock images available...
