Post [Q] Trying to update software, keeps going to recover and no update. Please help.

Hello,

My phone is root and S-OFF (thank you firewater) and am now trying to update the phone.

My phone downloads the update (1.54.651.8 (114.76MB), puts it in my \downloads directory, and when I hit"Install now" on my phone it just reboots right to recovery and wont install.

Then I say oh well, I have the file in my download directory so I go to flash the .zip to update the phone, and the TWRPs screen flashes a bunch of times, then just goes right back to the TWRP home screen and I then have to reboot the phone, but it has no update.

I can't even disable the update to stop it from popping up until I figure it out, and my phone is rebooting way more than it needs to because of it.

Please help.

Thank you for your time in this manner.

You can't flash a system update with a custom recovery. If you want the stock rom and continue to be rooted with custom recovery, then I would suggest Bad Seed Customs Stockish rom located HERE or going over to Captain-Throwback's thread and download the updated stock rom located HERE.
