Question Can't Update OTA, SDM Fails at Start, Trying to Keep Root

Hello.

I'm having trouble updating via OTA. I froze sdm.apk but unfreezing didn't work. I tried installing a back up but that didn't work. Please help!

I'm rooted and trying to get kitkat while using supersu survival mode.

Thanks for the help.

Unroot, maybe factory reset and then update, root again?

or safe yourself the trouble and just flash the rom you want with Odin? In both cases you have to root again.
Current:

Samsung Galaxy S 4 I9505 | WanamLite v3.0

1. Make a backup of ur Internal Memory
2. Make a factory reset (Settings > Accounts > Back Up and Reset > Factory Data Reset > Reset Device > Delete All/Erase Everything.)
3. Conect it to Kies 3
4. Kies 3 will give u the info you need for know ur correct CSC. This will be btw parenthesis close CSC.
5. Knowing ur CSC, take a look for this firmware in Sammobile.com
6. Download and flash it with ODIN (Dont flash a "Black EDITION" if ur phone isnt it).
7. Root it again

Thanks to those that replied.

How about we try this first. Can someone provide a sdm.apk file? Every time I search for it all I get is how to block OTA updates, nothing about getting the original file.
