The custom recoveries used to root,and install roms are NOT capable of installing HTC's updte packages. Attempting to do so could jam you up terribly. As was said,don't do it! Waiting for a flashable rom is the prefered way to update a rooted phone.

Wouldn't the OTA update actually eventually force itself upon the phone? Or is this phone different than the LG Optimus F3 for OTA updates? I know this thread is nearly a year old but why make another thread when there is already one that pertains to my question? Anyways with the LG Optimus F3 I always got an annoying message that kept wanting me to update and eventually it updated itself it just removed root and that was all. For the HTC one which is my new phone I didn't get any update prompts I had to actually go to see if there was any updates. Then I had updated and then there was another update right after I updated. So I wouldn't know if it forces the updates or not so if someone knows if it forces the updates then I would really like to know thanks.

I'm going to venture and say no. In my experience with my 3 previous HTC devices, none of them would force an OTA update. In fact I'm pretty sure that I always had to manually check for updates on them. Most devices don't automatically force/run OTA's without you actually accepting the update.
Funny that your F3 did an automatic OTA update... I know that when I was using my LG Motion and there were a couple OTA's available for it, (I was running a custom ROM/recovery though) it never forced an OTA, but I constantly received the update notification multiple times a day for like a month and that got annoying, so I just removed the OTA notification from the system. While I know some other members did have issues with the Motion automatically running/forcing the OTA update over night while connected to WiFi.
My LG Optimus L9 never forced the last recent OTA update either, just the constant notification... So that might be something specific with LG devices.
