Not enough info. Did you restore stock recovery? Why can't you install OTA (what error messages, etc.)?

Did you turn it back to S-on after doing S-off? If so, you didn't need to, as s-on is not required for OTA.

What is the current state of the phone, is it bootlooping, etc.?

It's a guess but H/K is a mod changing Kernel and will thus prevent OTA from succeeding as far as I know.

Perform a clean install of a TWRP Backup (of course one that fits your CID/MID, which is why @zhiarw asked for it I think) without this mod. After this reinstall stock recovery and try OTA again.

This should do the job.

Ok, then find backup corresponding to your FW for this CID without H/K Mod, install using recovery (e.g. TWRP), go back to stock revocery.

After this you should be abled to perform the OTA.
