    Does this root still allow OTAs?

    There really isn't any reason it shouldn't allow an update. You may loose root though if you were to update.

    Rooting does not stop OTA updates.

    However, if you delete any preinstalled software or install a custom recovery, then the update will fail.

    Correct. I wouldn't advise people to delete any files. Rather rename them from .apk to .bak.... Then you can just rename them back. Or you can use titanium backup and freeze the bloatware.

    If by chance someone had already deleted them, don't panick just ask someone for the needed fikes and you can add them back.

    Historically the way root is achieved on Samsung devices your applying a custom recovery via Odin and flashing a modified kernel to allow root access followed up with flashing Superuser. So in most cases as long as you don't change the stock ROM other than what is needed for root access/Superuser it will still receive official OTA updates.

    Two things that could happen if it accepts the update.

    1. It may fail on installation due to the custom recovery. Not a big deal there is always a work around for this.

    2. If it does take, you may loose root and have to redo the process over once updated.

    You can also copy them off to SD(to get some space back) and then delete the original. I'll be doing up a bloat clean up script shortly.

    Don't forget to set permissions after putting files back in place.

    Just wanted to let you guys know this went great for me yesterday afternoon. My phone has been running quite nicely since then, and I did use a few apps with superuser permissions. The only thing that threw was the part where you pull the battery. I had to disconnect the cable, AND pull the battery - both of which seemed a little scary given the process, but it turned out fine.

    Yeah, I think they need to add the step telling people when to disconnect the cable.
