Question Problem installing OTA 4.4.2 with custom recovery (TWRP) and encrypted phone

Hi everyone,

Las week the OTA update appeared in my phone. I tried to use the google-automatic procedure, but as I have my Nexus 5 rooted, the install was aborted as soon as the device was restarted.

I read the helpdesk thread, trying to update the device manually, but I can't be able to.

I have the 4.4 to 4.4.2 .zip file inside the downloads folder, I restart the device to recovery mode (I've installed TWRP), and after writing the decrypt password and mount the volume, When I try to apply the zip file

"/system/app/EmailGoogle.apk" has unexpected co
E: Error executing update binary in zip '/sdcar
Error flashing zip '/sdcard/Download/b3d1f30762
Updating partition details..

Note that the senteces is cut due to the lenght of the screen.

Before flashing, I go to mount option, and mount all the folder (system, firmware, sdcard)

Any ideas?

Now I'm thinking that when I rooted the device, I used ES File Explorer to delete some apps directly from /sys/apps, maybe is that the error, that some GApps has been removed from the device.

Thank you!

Yes Google has nicely written in app checks. If these apps are not present on check the update is aborted

you modified the system apps.. what did you think was going to happen? everything would update fine?

this has been documented all over the forums. if you want the OTA, stop modifying your system or keep backups of what you modified.
Go back to stock on your nexus 5 using this guide: here

Tired of paying too much money for your phone plan? go prepaid!

Save money on refills for your prepaid plans: Use Callingmart

Flashing gapps is not going to help you. You need to fastboot flash the system and boot image from the factory image

Oh, really? Damn.... Well then I will start from scratch next weekend, or find the way to hide the update.

Flashing the system and boot images isn't starting from scratch... you can keep your userdata as long as you aren't using a custom ROM. Flashing those just gives you back a clean stock OS without any of your mods. No need to start from scratch. Should only take a couple minutes.

Also, your mods are the reason it failed in the first place, not because you were rooted. Rooting itself does not prevent OTA updates.
