    Default S4 not letting me get kitkat OTA

    As many of you, I have received the the 4.4.2 kitkat update. I finally downloaded it and tried to install but kept failing at 26% and the phone would reboot. I am rooted and I have tried many times after removing SU and safestrap. I also tried to flash a stock rom with Odin as well but kept recieving a fail message. Any help to get me out of the jam would be appreciated. I wiped the phone and did a factory reset, still no dice. Atleast I am still able to use my phone normally on 4.3 Mk2, I just dont get KK I guess

    Dear god did you unfreeze and or restore all of the stock apps ? The ota won't go unless you have all of the stock samsung apps and at&t bloatware installed and there is no root method for kit kat you will loose root and possibly never have it rooted at&t has this thing locked up tite

    I have the same issue. My phone is not rooted. I tried rolling back the date, and downloaded the update a few times. I reset my phone. It still fails at 25%.

    Yes. It downloads the update. It fails when installing the downloaded update.

    when at first there was apps frozen but then I did a factory resest and let everything be and still failed. I'm gonna wait on it a little and try again later this week. If what you are saying is true about the apps to SD than maybe KK isn't all so grand after all....
