    At best the OTA will break root access. There is a possibility of the OTA bricking the device.

    There is a possibility to get OTA updates in some phones after rooting, OTA cannot brick your phone.

    If you try to install it will likely fail anyways and say no changes made, that's what mine did.

    Pull down the notification shade, long press the update notification, click app info that comes up, uncheck show notifications.

    It still keeps coming back. I tried to use titanium backup to freeze it but it says cant gain root access. I ran root check and it says it rooted. Whats up with that?
