Unhappy [Q] Rooted Nexus 5 - 4.4.3 Cannot apply system update

System update cannot be applied:
1) download system update
2) tap reboot and install
3) start installation
4) got error message "Error!" after 5 seconds
/system/bin/app_process has unexpected contents
E:Error in /cache/blablablanumbershere.signed-hummerhead-KTU84M-from-KOT59H.d174d546.zip
Status 7

1) Tried to wipe cache data
2) Then install ADB update - not success after an hour

Did somebody have the same problem?

Hey, hope this help.

Install this from the play store

https://play.google.com/store/apps/d...ar.multirommgr

Use it ONLY to install the recovery at this stage.

After it's done reboot, make sure you're still rooted.

Apply update as per normal, should work with this new recovery .

If you're rooted, do not bother wasting time with OTA updates

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 and/or kernel, reboot into recovery, flash the OTA , boot to bootloader, connect to pc, fastboot flash recovery, reboot into recovery, flash supersu.

Rooted stock = reboot into recovery, flash the ROM.

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