Hi,
I'm running sense 5.5 android 4.3 version 3.63.707.3, firm, rooted, CWMR, s-on.
I'm able to download the 4.20.707.6 OTA update, but can't install it. Flashing the stock recovery will fix it?
Thx.

yes lol as we said in the other thread you posted in. I posted you the stock recovery for your version there. your recovery here

save it to your adb/fastboot folder
boot your phone in bootloader mode and select fastboot

Code:
fastboot flash recovery <name_of_file>.img
fastboot erase cache
fastboot reboot-bootloader
You will probably loose root ,you will need to root your phone again after ota's

You should use that one I linked above. Easy to flash.

Worked just fine, man. Thx again!
I have another question, though. Which custom recovery do you recommend? I had CWMR, but reading the forum I noticed a lot of people using TWRP.

I recommend latest twrp recovery (either 2.6.6.3 or 2.6.6.4) which is required to flash 4.4 roms
