i wanted to upgrade my nexus 5 to android 4.4.3 via ota updates, but it always freezes on the error screen, so i tried to update it with the twrp recovery. Well, now it says that dexdump content is unexpected, even if i don'h have that file in /system/xbin
I also have uninstalled xposed, but i don't know what to do next!
anyone can help me?

Just download the full rooted stock ROM in android development and flash it without wipe from recovery.

It's actually fewer steps anyway.

OTA = revert system changes, boot recovery, flash, re-flash recovery, re-root
Rooted stock = boot recovery, flash

No brainer really. Flashing an OTA if rooted is a fool's errand

You will not lose your data in both guides, unless you perform a factory reset in recovery.

Perhaps you need to understand the basics before doing anything. Go to the link in my signature and read through section 1.1
