Default Can't update to 4.4

So when I try to install the new 4.4 update it is stuck on the rebooting now screen, It has been there for 20 minutes. I am unlocked and rooted if that makes a difference. Also I tried to flash thunderkat and that also failed in twrp. I have no clue why. Just seeing if anyone might have an answer for my problem.

I had exactly the same, you must exit out of bootloop, factory reset then continue. WUGS NRT for N10 tells you to do it and how and when. I've only had this issue on N10, not my N7 or N4.

Huh? Are you updating? Don't. Do fresh stock install. Then unroot with no custom recovery. Then install custom recovery.

In the mean time, you can return to normal by reflashing the cm nightly/stable ROM you were running when you tried to update to 4.4. I had the same issue, but managed to reflash the stable cm 10.2 zip and my nexus began to function again.

But also I would like to know how to go about reflashing stock and undoing root without permanently losing my game data. From what I understand, a nandroid backup would take care of all of that for me?

Flash the latest Factory image via fastboot. There is a way tot modify the flash-all.bat so it wont wipe any data.

That will erase everything on it though, right?

Yes.

So? I backup myself and restore myself, using LAN file-server for small files and a USB drive for large files.

There is more time wasted in trying to keep data and settings than the time it takes to re-enter.
