Default Currently on 4.2, can't update to 4.3 -- options?

Hey guys. I want to get to 4.4.2 but I'm currently on 4.2. I have root and a custom recovery, and my OTA updates are failing a verification check. The OTA is trying to update to 4.3.

Is there a zip I can flash to go to 4.4.2 without having to wipe my phone? Or do I need to flash in order? Or is my only option wiping everything and flashing stock (how would I do that)? If that's the case I'll probably just stick with 4.2. I want to skip right over 4.3 because that was a buggy mess for me that ultimately resulted in terrible battery life and broken apps. But I've heard good things about 4.4.2

Sounds like you want a flashable stock 4.2.2 build, right? Haven't tried it myself, but it seems this thread is where you want to look.

It's a flashable zip of the 4.4.2 Stock ROM, only zipaligned (doesn't cause problems in OTA). Flash it through TWRP, and you're done. Good luck!

That's not quite what I was looking for but thank you for the answer.

That's what I wanted! Thanks much, seems to be working great. Loving everything but the white phone app and I dislike Hangouts. Thanks much. :]
