You could go to a best buy and request them to reflash it for you.

I've wondered if we undid whatever frozen apps ect then used the kingo unroot if we would get the ability to upgrade.

Kingo renamed some files and installed a few

thats exactly what im currently trying. i went into tibu, did a batch unfreeze, then used kingo to unroot. restarted and am now downloading the update. hopefully it will get me up to kitkat and let me root again with towelroot.

nope didn't work... it would download, then when it tries to install the update, it stops at about 24%, reboots and gives an error saying update interrupted.

I tried manually doing it also by putting the update file on SD card and applying in recovery mode... it starts, errors, and wiped my data....

the only way seems to be the harder way heh

There is a thread that talked about what files to rename and delete but nobody ever got it written down perfectly
