    I rooted my s3 using the auto root method, and I was wondering if I will get the jellybean update when it comes out, if not how would I unroot?

    Yes you will be able to update unless you flash a custom rom then you wont.

    No...you will not get the update unless you restore your stock rom, you can be rooted and get the update the only thing is that you might loose root access but no biggie....
