    You can still get updates if rooted. It is when you install ROMs that have updates disabled that you won't ever see them.

    That said, any updates will mess with your root, but that will give you a chance to play with stock updates each time, right?

    You can try this

    Before you flash anything can you get back to stock? How to get back to stock using Odin



    Have you backed up your files and pictures? I see too many desperate cries for help recovering deleted priceless pictures with no solution.

    I got a problem, when I reboot into the boot loader (this is after I'm unlocked) adb does not recognized my devices and I tried readding the adb driver back but that didn't do anything and it won't let me flash the new recovery because it cannot find my device.

    After you unlocked the bootloader (which performed a data wipe), did you go back in and re-enable USB Debugging?
