    If you are on Verizon with a Galaxy S4 and have root access DO NOT update to the latest OTA Update, it will Kill your root access!

    Honestly I think that goes for any or most rooted phones... You would need to use an app like voodoo root keeper to reclaim your root ..that's a pretty easy app .. .... If you didn't do that...SOL... I don't do all the rooting stuff like I use to....

    Someone correct me if I'm wrong...idk how much has changed in a year since I've last rooted a phone

    What version is the OTA? I just bought mine and it did 4.2.2. Is there a later update?

    Based on what I've read, the update is primarily for Knox stuff (under the hood). It is labeled as "I545VRUDMI1" and is still Android 4.2.2

    There is already a root method post over on XDA: Root De La Vega - I545VRUDMI1 - xda-developers

    Haven't seen a rooted version (ROM) be made available yet, but based what I've read about the update, it doesn't sound like anyone needs to be a real hurry to get it installed anyway. Heck, I'm still on MDK, and will probably stay there until I get rid of my S4.
