    Default Verizon Galaxy S4 received "Samsung Account Update" - Safe for rooted phone?

    I just got an update from Samsung saying I need a "Samsung Account Update". My phone is rooted, does anyone know what this update does and if it'll break root?

    It's not a carrier-pushed OTA update, but I'm still nervous.

    No, you should be fine. It's just an update for your account, so you can take it and not worry

    Assuming a carrier-pushed OTA if the phone is rooted, it's still safe. The update will run until the root check, then refuse to update the phone. Same thing for a custom ROM.
