    Rooting normally involves installing a custom recovery. In the process of doing so that alone causes in most cases the OTA update to fail. It will receive it, download it but upon install it fails.

    So if your looking for OTA updates in that case you would look to your developer community because they would update their ROMs to support any new updates or throw out a " stock " rooted version of the latest update for you to flash.

    Some people claim that you can perform updates over the air if you've rooted the ROM that came with the device (4.1.2) and all it will do is remove the root, however others (the majority) claim that you would have to go back fully stock (unrooted) in order to be able to perform updates over the air. From my experience, I wasn't able to do it while rooted and I got an error message after downloading the OTA update saying (Your software has been modified).

    Usually you start to remove apks it kills the OTA because you have modified the original file setup.
