    So I've been reading about rooting and one of the things I have seen is that rooting it will disable over the air updates. Is there any way I can still get recent phone updates if I root it?

    Rooting your phone wont cause u to not be able to get ota's. Who knows if there will ever be an update.

    If you don't flash a recovery you will be able to get OTA updates but they will unroot your phone
