Root [Verizon] How I took OTA JB and Kept Root...

It didn't work for me. I temporary unrooted, then downloaded the OTA and when it rebooted it went into the clockworkmod recovery and gave me the option to "install untrusted file". I chose that but the installation was aborted.

Standard OTA's tend to fail if you don't have stock recovery installed. You'll want to find a flashable zip of the ota with the recovery removed and flash it in cwm.
