So, if you're rooted, you won't get the update? I got 4.4.2 while rooted.

Huh? First I've heard of it. I got mine with 4.3 and the 4.4.2 update came like a day later and I updated while un-rooted. But I know that it won't work if your rooted.

And what's up with your eye, is it busted or winking?

rooting alone has nothing to do with getting, or not getting updates.

I went from 4.3 to 4.4.2 rooted, and everything.

What matters is things like /system changes, recovery, and sometimes kernel (if it changes).

And even recovery is not really an issue (at least with twrp), you just boot into twrp, find the ota update in /cache, and manually flash it, clear caches, reboot, easy peasy.

As for /system changes, just flash a stock system.img, get the update, and you're golden.

Or you can just wait till someone releases a flashable 4.4.3 and use it.

Exactly what he said!

Info 2
If it's not a build.prop edit, it's very curious and interesting. Maybe can you dump your ROM and upload it for inspection ? :P
It's a DEB device, so it sounds great

Any chance you might flash the 4.4.2 factory image, then grab the 4.4.3 update again and pull the update URL from the logcat so we can all enjoy?
