Basic rooting questions from a noob
Can I still get over-the-air software updates if I just rooted my phone without installing a custom rom or deleting any stock apps (did install sdfix, xposed mod, and super su)?
Does not being able to get over-the-air software updates leave me more exposed to security risks?
How can I know when a new software update is available for my s4 after I rooted it?
I installed an antivirus app onto my phone. Are there other security apps I should install since I rooted my phone?
Sorry, this is the first time I've ever rooted a phone so am still learning.

Re: Basic rooting questions from a noob
I'm rooted (stock ROM) and I got OTA update; I checked "survival mode" in SuperSU and uninstalled Xposed frameword (not the modules)
I'm in Canada, so my bootloader is unlocked; not sure if that maks a difference or not
