    Gaining root access does not change the fact that you are using a stock ROM. Root access is a superuser level that the phone recognizes and allows you to do things that you could not do without it. If you want to look at the ROM, you can go to Settings>scroll down to About device. You can check root access by downloading an app called root check. And once you have root access you can no longer download OTA updates unless you can fully unroot, or some superuser apps allow a temporary unroot.

    Unless you flashed a custom ROM that you downloaded you are still running the stock ROM.

    In some situations you can still receive OTA update as long as you haven't deleted stock bloatware and system apps. Even with the custom recovery there is some workarounds to get the update.

    Regardless of the above, you will always find someone who puts up the latest OTA update in stock form so you can flash it and stay rooted

    10 years old ?!? Really rooting just admin privileges. Even root you can still get the update just not the over the air ones. As they come out they are frequently made available for a manual update. No big deal.

    You just flashed cwm recovery with Odin. That is not a Rom.

    Sprint doesn't use kies. It will be pushed to your phone.

    I'm on Sprint and my husband's GS2 is eligible for JB 4.I. 2 and it is either by Kies or in-store install, there is no OTA available for this upgrade for the GS2.
