hey, I'm new to the S4, but unless things have changed for the better, I don't think you can get an OTA update unless you unroot the device.

There is a root method for the new update and instead of using the apps 2sd the better one to use is gl 2sd it's way better

Bottom line: If you want root DO NOT update to latest version, either by OTA, Kies, or ODIN.

The longer version is this...
When the new software came out, it broke all known exploits to root the Verizon GS4. There are devs working on it, and while there is now a method to get root access, there is still no way at this time to get a custom recovery installed, so doing things like flashing ROMs or doing nandroids is still not possible...which to many is just an important.

There are some ROMs available based off this update that are safe to flash, however I'm not sure if apps2SD support is included, you'd have to investigate that yourself.
