    The ONLY way I could update my rooted gs4 was to reload 4.3 with Kies3. Then factory wipe/reset again for a clean install. After that I could download the update...

    I seem to be having a similar issues with my GS4 SCH-I545...I can download but not install the newest KitKat update. My phone I'd not rooted, however. I have tried everything imaginable other than the Kies thing. Safe mode, soft reset, factory reset, full blown memory wipe. Any help would be greatly appreciated....since Samsung has been unable to solve my issue.

    Thanks!

    There is a workaround on the XDA website for MK2. I have MJ7, still waiting.
