Hi That's correct. Philz recovery was acting up (could not get it to complete a backup) so perhaps root was affected? I'm not so clued up on this (clearly!).
Anyway, once I updated and realised I screwed up (very long start up time, no wifi) I got the usual message on Kies (your firmware cannot be updated etc etc...).
It's with the network now and fully expecting them to tell me warranty is void. I'm definitely put off rooting the S4 for a while.
