Default [Q] Android 4.4.2 Update Failed

I tried to update my phone today and ran into an issue. It seems that when the phone reboots into recovery mode, it says that there is an error and forces me to find the download image manually. I looked to see if it was on the SD card and there was no luck there. Is it because the download itself is corrupted in some way, or is this a bigger issue than that? BTW my phone isn't rooted if that helps

Did you get the update OTA? If so you could try a factory reset, then re-download the update OTA, and try again.
Samsung Galaxy S4 (NC5-Stock-Root-Deodex)

Default Rooted S4 won't update to 4.4, error, rooted with CF-Auto-Root-jflte-jfltexx-gti9505

I haven't gotten the OTA notification yet, but if I go to about phone, system updates it will find it and download it.
When it tries to install it will do the normal things, but at the end won't complete and says error.

What error would it be? The S4 was rotted with CF-Auto-Root-jflte-jfltexx-gti9505 and I also read the source code of KitKat was realeased from Samsung. I guess I may have to wait until I get an OTA update or until one of you masters redoes the update.

Please Help.

Thank You

The the supreme court ruled that rooting was legal.

The Supreme Court has no jurisdiction over Verizon.

You are confusing sim card locking with locked bootloader and Verizon can lock the bootloader...
