OTA RootKeeper -no 4.3 support

Available in :
Free tool trying to protect root across manufacturer's OTA updates.
Also serves as temporary un-root (see statement)

Distributed as free of charge - no warranty. Open Source license: WTFPL.
Alternative download link:

This application makes a backup or a protected backup of your device's root.
This device must already be rooted: OTA RootKeeper doesn't have the ability to root devices.

If several conditions are matched, OTA RootKeeper will make root survive OTAs and... pretty much well anything :) − except /system partition formatting.

- /system partition as Ext2, Ext3 or Ext4
- Upgrades not formatting or overwriting completely the /system partition.

Typical systems where its perfectly effective:
- Nexus S
- Galaxy Nexus
- Every Honeycomb tablet

Typical system where the protection won't work:
- HTC Desire
- Samsung Galaxy Spica
- Samsung Galaxy S / SII

The application doesn't support original Superuser and not SuperSU for a very simple reason. The same feature OTA protection feature is already present in SuperSU.

In most case, only manufacturer's original recovery is able to install OTAs. It should not interfere with OTA update process itself.

A bonus feature is present, allowing you to un-root your device while keeping a su backup.
This way you can naively hide root until you choose to restore it via without further complications.
This nifty feature work on every rooted device.

** Temporary un-root statement **

This feature is designed for dev purposes in order to test their app with or without root.
The goal here is not to encourage stupid and unacceptable behaviors by movie or content sellers trying to prevent you to purchase or watch digital media you purchased if your device is rooted.
Vote with your dollars: Don't accept being a customer of companies restricting your freedom with defective and and inefficient technical measures.

OTA root keeper is Open Source. Contributions, reviews and comments are welcome!

XDA Developers thread:

- Please help making the app work on devices I don't know/own instead of giving useless bad ratings.
- It seems I have to repeat that. Comments & rating doesn't help fixing bugs. Take responsibility if you want problem solved.

Help Does it work on samsung galaxy tab 3. I haven't updated using kies or odin . It doesn't check root acces

by A Google User the 11/5/2013

Great but...... When will it work for 4.3? It's already been months since the update. Other than that it's perfect and does it's job well. This app should not be free by the way, it's worth .99 cents at the least. Good job Dev but when can we see 4.3 support?

Awesome kept root on MI1 from ME7 4.1.2 SG$ Verizon I just received the MI1 Verizon Galaxy S4 update and had been running ME7 rooted. I installed this prior to installing the update and it kept it. I didn't have to do anything prior other then make sure that the root protection was set. Beautiful program.
