    Unrooting for Samsung OTA upgrades

    Was the OTA upgrade that different that I would need to unroot my phone to do the upgrades?

    @kvnr33d, Due to lack of respones I will assume that you finally got it to work following my directions and therefore I also assume that due to lack of response you are saying thank you. To which my response is, you're welcome

    I tried this but still showing custom device status & it won't update. Would having TWRP recovery installed be a factor here?

    I ended up selling the phone on craigslist, the buyer didn't mind about it being rooted & custom status so I got lucky lol.

    But I'm sure your video will help others as well, Thanks.
