VirginRom as of now is already on 4.4. Perhaps you downloaded an outdated version of it. The 4.4 kitkat update people are awaiting for is the one with TouchWiz.

So you now have VirginROM 4.4.x? Is it the same one that's been available in the Android Development section since like December? Because if so, it's the official 4.4 update and it IS out and has been for a while now.
Don't be afraid of the "Thanks" button

Pardon the comments which seem like objections, but they are necessary if the content of your post is not exactly accurate. The GPE 4.4.2 has been available for a long time for this device. The official TW 4.4.2 is not available yet. Don't confuse the two. Also, of course the GPE update notification will occur if you're on the older version of Virgin Rom(4.3). But if you have a custom recovery it will fail to install most likely. Also, the title of your post fails to recognize the complexities of going from 4.3 to 4.4 on an older bootloader and having a fully working result.

I think your intentions were nice, but you may end up misleading people.
