Question [q] ota 4.3 update fails at 25%

I have an ATT SAMSUNG GALAXY S4. I have been rooted and have had safestrap installed previously. BOTH ARE UNINSTALLED NOW. Whenever I try to download the new 4.3 OTA update my phone restarts after downloading and gets to 25% then says update failed. I believe this is because my system folder is modified from rooting, de bloating, etc. I'm wondering if anyone has a copy of the completely stock mf3 /system folder so that I can replace mine, or if anyone can tell me how to find out which files I have modified or removed and how to replace them. Any other solution is also welcome. I HAVE tried searching before but nosolution I find works. Thanks.

Reroot, look for the busybox files in system/bin or system/xbox using a root Explorer of your choice. Delete them. Then unroot and try again.

Then you are going to have to Odin back to MF3 stock.
