hi abhinav. thanks for the update..
however is it necessary for me root my phone before i update it (i know dumb question) but i have been able to see a root folder when using quick folder apps and would i be able to access or copy files into it??

Nopes.. this is a OTA update which you'll be installing by your own... No need to root! and dont worry it will not root your device, hence you'll be having your warranty :)
