You were right, I was looking in the wrong file,
So extracted the real factory image and there was another zip in that which contained the respective files!! Lets see what I can do now!

Default Solved!!

Okay. I am now on 4.4.2!! Cheers!!

But dirty flashing didn't worked for me!
I flashed the system.img and boot.img from 4.4 base, and then tried flashing 4.4.1. It worked. But flashing 4.4.2 zip failed just like before.

So after that I took a backup of my sd card and did a full flash of 4.4 base. (KRTO) and then updated to 4.4.2>flashed twrp>waited for OTA>installed OTA from twrp. Worked like a charm.

Now the challenge lies in restoring the data back completely. I have a nandroid backup and TiBu. Guess I will be usin TiBu!!

This thread will be an excellent guide for people facing me problem update OTA over rooted stock rom!

Thanks everyone for their help and support!! Cheers

@neo1691

happy holidays indeed!

The nice thing about nandroids is that you can jump back and forth between two ROMs if necessary.

For instance, suppose you forgot to do TiBu in the prior ROM - no problem! Just make a nandroid of the current (new) ROM, restore the prior Nandroid, do the TiBu backup, restore the (new) ROM nandroid, and then perform the TiBu restores. Easy-peasy.


Backups are awesome. Make 'em often - you can always toss them after a while if you aren't going to use them.
