Today I was pretty much fed up with the constant amount of messages being stuck in "sending...." and even the ones that after half a second "failed to send", so I decided I'd try and update my phone again.

Stock rom, Fiddy619 rooted.

So I go into magical SuperSU and click the Full Unroot button. Success. Reboot phone. Check for software update, oh poor dead Android guy. 1 minute later, phone reboots, back to square 1 with "partial" root and no SuperSU.

Okay, so I rerun Fiddy619. Success. Go to apps. No SuperSU. So I push it on over from my computer, install. SuperSU boots up. "A new Binary is -" SuperSU has stopped. Open it up, SuperSU has stopped. SuperSU has stopped. SuperSU has stopped. Okay. So I get it open, hurry up and update. Success. No more annoying messages.

Well lets check out Adfree.. Thinking.. SuperSU has stopped. Well that's great. So now SuperSU is broken but I'm still rooted.

All I wanted to do was unroot, update. Nothing more. So where should I go about from here? SuperSU is broken and Freegee doesn't load, just resets my phone after hanging it for a minute.

You don't have to unroot. Just take thre update. There's a guide here if you need it. http://forum.xda-developers.com/show....php?t=2050582

After installing Freegee I never got it to properly load. It would just crash, so I had assumed it wasn't working properly.

As of right now it seems like I'm stuck unrooted, but I still can't take the OTA update. Whenever an app would normally ask for SuperSU permission, it crashes, and the app hangs. Opening Freegee just resets my phone.

The thread doesn't really help because I did follow those directions, but I don't have a custom loader or recovery. It's pure stock+root (now in limbo of rooted).

What recovery do you have? Stock? Or when you installed FreeGee did you load TWRP or CWM?

My recovery is stock. When I installed Freegee it never even loaded for me to be able to install TWRP, it just simply crashed right away..

OK. So have you removed any apps when you were rooted?
Also, theres a link to Framaroot in that guide. Try it if you haven't already. Right now we just have to get root so you can install FreeGee and a recovery so you can just flash a stock Rom.

If your data connection is iffy, use WiFi to install FreeGee. It really does help.

FreeGee has been installed and has booted up properly.
Installed TWRP.
Rebooted.

Checked for Software update, says my system is up to date. Software information still says I'm at ZVB, however.

Save yourself the hassle. Flash this in TWRP. http://forum.xda-developers.com/show....php?t=2536636 Its stock zvc.
You probably don't need the radio zip. But it won't hurt either. Go to the teeny bin thread in Development and get the zvc radio. It seems to be the same as zvb though.
