So... To hell with 4.4.3 this time if it wont work properly.

But there is something in my mind.
Guys, how many of you have stickmount installed?
I remember an error coused by it. Maybe it is the reason the update failed...

Flashing stock recovery.img and stock system.img does not wipe all my data. Everything was still there: all my media, files, apps, and app data.

I think you're right about the Stickmount app. I did have it on my son's tablet, and I had to flash system. Last night I updated my wife's tablet. She did not have Stickmount, so the OTA installed without me having to flash system. Just to be safe I did flash stock recovery first. I put TWRP back on and re-rooted after the OTA.
