I update from rooted phone via mobile support tool. Unroot via supersu and then use mobile support tool and update! Via mobile or pc suite it gonna not work.

I have a rooted set but i cant update through the support tool either, it just get stuck in download mode on the phone and after a while the tool declares that there was an unknown error preventing the update

It depend on which KK version you are using. You should use towelroot (v20A) or adb sideload (v20B), please read more at http://forum.xda-developers.com/opti...at4-4-t2834981

I used Framaroot to unroot after failing with the other root/unroot options. Then I updated via computer using "mobile support tool". OTA update did not work for me!
And have been using 4.4.2 (V20a EUR OPEN) without bugs (that I am aware of ) for about a week now.

I had problem using the mobile support tool, turned out it did not work on usb 3.0 ports, switched to a 2.0 port and then it worked, so if anyone still cant update with the supporttool then try to hardreset your phone and make sure to use a 2.0 usb port,
