    I am rooted with an unlocked bootloader but everything else is stock (no custom Rom). How do I install ota updates? Do I have to unroot??? Thanks

    Did you freeze any apps by renaming them? If so, try unfreezing them.
    Though admittedly, I didn't unfreeze and had no issues. However, not many of mine are frozen.

    I'm not using Clockwork Recovery, so I can't comment on that front. But yes, just follow the root method again.
