    I rooted my phone, updated it to 4.4.2, now when I try to install update 4.4.4, it fails. I'm using a Galaxy S5.

    One of the first steps the update does is check to see that it's running in the stock ROM and that the ROM isn't rooted. (Updating a non-stock phone could brick it.) If there are "leftovers" from the rooting, it won't update. The fastest fix is usually to reflash a stock older (in this case 4.4.2) ROM.

    Just to add onto what Rukbat said returning to stock is fairly simple on a pc by using Odin software that's how I got the update on my old s5 when I was rooted.

    It has been rooted any rooted phone is hard to get an update or upgrade, solutions are you have to unroot it, then update and root again. I hope it helps
