Default Update to 4.4 not working.

Hi all,

I have tried to update to 4.4 from 4.3 several times but it keeps failing. My tablet works fine still. I am on jss15r, I am rooted, and running multiRom with his stock kernal. I have gotten notice 2 times that 4.4 was available for download via ota and have tried to install it. It reboots into twrp and then runs for about 30 seconds the takes me to the main menu. I have tried to upgrade manually to 4.4 via some .zip files and twrp. Nothing seems to be working. Anybody had this problem or know how to fix it??

You to at least be on the stock rom. I was able to sideload the update through adb with TWRP.

I am on Stock Rom, I just modified the kernal to run MultiRom. Should i revert back and then try to manually update via ADB sideload?

Everywhere that I look says you need to be on completely stock rom. I'm assuming that means stock kernel too.

bkwright87 is correct. Some people get lucky and can take an OTA through a custom recovery, but it doesn't normally work. You need to return to bone stock then take the OTA or just skip a step and flash the kitkat files manually.
