Yeah I have a custom recovery.

How does one change the rom file's updater script?

I was able to open the updater-script but not sure exactly what to change.

It isn't as much as you needing to change it. I guess I should have started with a question... What kind of error are you seeing when you try to flash stock?

I copied the error from a previous post. Not sure about the dates but the error is the same.

"Can't install this package (Tue Dec 10 14:17:53 CET 2013) over newer build (Mon May 12 11:10:10 CEST 2014)"

There is a thread in either Q&A or General that has the steps need to be done to get the Google 4.4.2 zip to flash from a custom recovery

Boils down to having to remove the top line or two that do the checks on the date, and maybe the line that checks the model. Don't extract the zip, use 7zip or the like to edit it, and I think all line endings have to be unix (shouldn't be a problem if you are just deleting lines)
Charles
Alcatel One Touch "easy" -> Nokia 1110i -> Alcatel ame-408 -> Motorola Razr v3 -> Huawei u8100 -> Sony Xperia Z-Ultra

Thankyou to all those that have donated to me over 2014.

Awesome It was buried but I was able to find it.

Had to make one change through. Changed C6806 to togari_gpe.

I copied and posted below in case someone needs it.


From user prohan:
1. Download 4.4.2 OTA zip from http://forum.xda-developers.com/show....php?t=2574264
2. Open the ZIP with 7zip (don't extract)
3. Edit META-INF\com\google\android

and changed C6806 to togari
getprop("ro.product.device") == "C6806" || abort("This package is for \"C6806\" devices; this is a \"" + getprop("ro.product.device") + "\".");

Then I simply flashed the modified OTA zip with CWM followed by Superuser. Reboot to bootloader and flash Advance Stock Kernel to regain custom recovery.

Now I am back to 4.4.2 with a working camera and the erratic external SD writes.
