If your looking to stay current with updates, there would be 2 options to take advantage of.
1) once a rom is made available with the newest update, flash that rom via clockworkmod or twrp (custom recovery)
2) flash the stock recovery onto your device to take the official OTA update. However doing this method will cause you to lose root.
What carrier are you with so I can move this to its appropriate root forum?
