Re: Bootloader unlocked...OTA'S???
Interesting....I am also bootloader unlocked, rooted and stock everything except for TWRP. I guess I misinterpreted what I have read on the forums that the OTA would just install under those conditions, and that I would just have to re-root afterwards. It worked going from 4.2 to 4.2.2, but I might have called TWRP from within fastboot at that time, and it was not permanently installed as it is now.
EDIT: I see on the xda forums, that under my scenario, I should do the following (I removed the rooting step because I am waiting until things stabilize). Somewhere I saw the detailed steps on how to do this :
You are stock, with root. Custom Recovery without any modifications or deletions.
1) Download the OTA.zip and copy to your phone.
2) Boot into recovery
3) Flash the OTA
Not sure it is the same method, but came across this, where two people successfully update to 4.3, with stock 4.2.2 and TWRP:
HOW TO : Flash 4.3 on rooted stock 4.2.2 - xda-developers
Personally I am going to wait until all the 4.3 bugs have been squashed and the developers have updated their apps to accommodate it. Android 4.3 has some major changes. Read what Chainfire is going through to upgrade their SuperSU app to allow for rooting; this is still a work in progress:
