    Any kind of modifications to your phone will make it not recognise the OTA updates. There are some workarounds you can do, mainly in the root side of things but that's pretty much it!

    Installing customs,aftermarket roms and even flashing any kernals on your device will stop you from receiving the latest android version update from your smartphone or tablet manufacture. The carrier you use can also affect you getting the latest update, you can fixed this by visiting the manufacture's support and downloading the update image(if available) and install to your device or you can install a custom rom that based off the latest android version.
