Hello all,

So, I decided to root my device when I found that after 4.4.4 update, hboot was updated and the command:
fastboot boot some_custom_recovery.img
so I can boot a temp recovery was disabled, I would like to ask, will actually flashing a custom recovery using:
fastboot flash recovery recovery.img
work? If after flashing a custom recovery then flashing SuperSU then flashing stock recovery, will I be able to get OTA updates? And what is the worst scenario here as I have read that people get stuck with boot loops and other problems here and there?

Thanks in advance..

To answer only some of your questions, yes, the command
Code:
fastboot flash recovery recovery.img
will work just fine. Regarding installing SuperSU and then flashing stock recovery again, I do not really know but I'd say that installing SuperSU edits system files somehow and must ruin OTA updates, but I could be wrong.

Then someone needs to update the recovery. Captain keeps ours updated for Sprint and it works just fine, I used it 2 days ago.
