Unhappy 4.4.1 Verification failing.

I downloaded the OTA update for my flo (nexus 7 wifi 2013). Checked the md5 checksum and it passes. tried to install it via asb sideload. Unlocked bootloader, stock recovery, stock system image and it says "whole-file verification", "signature verification failed", "installation aborted.

Im at at my wits end why? Everything is ****ing stock and I have re-imaged everything to ****ign stock to be sure and haven't been able to solve this for the last hour.

Any help or insight would be appreciated.

Update: Yes, I've searched this forums and others and most people come up with "its probably a corrupt download". And it is not. Also, tried iinstalled it with TWRP 2.6.3.1 , it still aborts, albeit with a different error (cant recall).

You mentioned that it's not corrupt, but have you verified that the file isn't corrupt via something like an MD5 hash? There are numerous programs you can grab from google to do this.

The MD5 for the copy I downloaded from google: ce344ae6d5d2f74f80c9009947c9cbe9

That really should be the only reason you get that error in my experience...if you could find out what the TWRP log says that would help as well.

I mentioned that in my original post. Twice. I appreciate the response, but no that isn't the issue.

I want this stock without root. I guess, it is an option, but then I'd have to unroot it?

I'm an idiot. Not sure how I managed to miss your first sentence, sorry about that.

Does it not say where the verification failed? It checks each system file that needs to be patched one by one and when it gets to one that's been modified it aborts the update, whenever this happens for me it says exactly which file it failed on
