Can a Samsung receive OTA updates normally with a systemless root?
If a systemless root is done, will software updates still appear in settings/show up as a notification that there is a new update available?
In case it does show up, can you download and install the update directly from the settings app even though the phone is rooted?
From what I read, systemless roots are great because they allow you to update a rooted Android without unrooting it. Is this the case or have I misread something?
Another thing I was curious about is if you root your Android via systemless root, would the phone status stay "official" or will it be "modified"/"custom"? And would a factory reset unroot a phone that has been rooted via systemless root?
No, no matter how you root your device, you won't get Android updates unless you flash a newer rom on Android which may cause you to have to wipe your phone. It also depends on what you use, if you use Magisk, KingoRoot or CF-Autoroot, then it may hide the root, but all jailbreaking apps try to hide the root so that you don't get stopped from using apps.
- Edit: Factory resetting removes root, but depending on your oem, they may always be able to tell if you root your phone. Like if you have a Note 3 that is rooted, it starts up and says Void Warranty on the top left. Samsung will always know that you rooted your device, even if you remove the root.
