Default Virgin mobile 4.4 update fails .. Aborted. BUT I WANT 4.4 and unroot :),i need help.

I'm having this problem too, I don't consider myself a noob, but my wife is sick she's pregnant and I have 3 daughters under 6. I have searched the forums until my eyes full with blood. I have a virgin mobile galaxy s3 rooted using clockwork mod custom recovery. Twice now they have offered to 4.4 update, frankly, I want to take it and unroot, I want the new update and I will root it again myself later. But both times it fails. Aborted. I have gathered in the threads its something to do with my custom recovery when I need it spelled out more than that. I've been working 19 hours a day and I'm a bit delirious. What can I do to make the update go through I don't care losing root. And my friends I'm sorry but I have looked everywhere for the answer and I am just exhausted with 2 jobs in a baby on the way. I apologize in advance can someone spell out for me what I should do I do not have a p_c or a computer can I do this from the phone? Is there a custom recovery or method I can do so the update will take? It gets more confusing more I read.. This time in from the little bit of research I have found I do not know if the update is still on my phone or not? I can't find it? They have offered it to me twice and when I check for the update in the update menu it is gone. I hope Samsung and virgin does not stop offering it because as crazy as it sounds I want a 4.4 stock unrooted.rooted I hope the ota is still on here. Can someone help me? You guys are awesome for years I've been looking at these threads and I rarely have to post because it's all spelled out. But this time I need a little help from my friends. Virgin Mobile galaxy s3 4.3 knoxed up clockworkmod custom recovery. I'm sorry if this is redundant but my situation is unique. I want the 4.4 stock and I don't know what I can do to make it happen. Been following these threads for years you have made my life more entertaining and much easier

Don't learn do when he found me yet! I've done a bit more research and I have uncovered that I have to get a different recovery, but I wonder if there's any recovery I could use other than stock? I'm not sure how to go back to stock recovery now

You'll need to find the stock recovery tar file and use Odin. No custom recovery will allow you to install an OTA.
