    That depends on what you do with root. If you screw up system files, then the ota will fail. If you leave it as it was flashed it'll take OTA's just fine.

    Nope, not planning on screwing with platform.xml again. I've learnt my lesson. Even though not having the SD card write access sucks! So if I understand it correctly with 4.4 the write permission is managed through the apps instead of locally? Which means the devs need to update their apps? Also, now that I have 4.4 installed with root following your method, can I unroot? Will it cause any issues?
    I'd like you to know that we a handful of gs4gpe users really appreciate your help. You have no idea how much grief I would've been in if it wasn't for your contributions. Just want to say thank you!

    Unrooting is fine. Won't cause any problems. Leaving it there won't cause any problems either.

    My thanks also, SamuriHL!! Having modified platform.xml, I used your Full Rooted Restore to get to 4.4. And then modified platform.xml again

    And you did that and have no issues with your device? When I modified it on 4.4 all hell broke loose and every thing was crashing. I had to reset the device to fix it.

    No issues so far (been 2 days). Just to be clear, I added the one line to the platform.xml file, I didn't try to replace the file with my modified Android 4.3 version of platform.xml

    Please let me know when the full rooted restore is ready!!

    Just kidding, I kept an original platform.xml so I can easily go back and take the OTA. Actually, if memory serves, the minor update following 4.3 worked OTA even with a modified platform.xml (my memory might be fuzzy though)

    It'll be ready 4 hours after I get it installed on my phone, actually.
