    I assume that doing this over the air will break my root access. Is there a kernel available for manual flashing yet? I can't seem to find one, and I don't want to have to keep dismissing the notification from Verizon.

    Just flash the NCG kernel, root with Towelroot (was very difficult because I kept getting "Unfortunately health service stopped" etc many many times, also it was very slow and unresponsive at times), verify root and install SuperSu and update binaries, then flash the NHA kernel and your good to go.

    Follow the directions in the link provided above. You will need to download Odin and all of the necessary files. You may have to run VirtualBox or some other Virtual Machine software so that you can have a Windows VM to run Odin from.

    I have a stock root and when I got the update notice I froze SDM 1.0. Now, I don't get asked to update.
