I rooted my I9505G running 4.4.2 bit did not replace the boot loader or the ROM. I just installed Supet-SU.

I've had two 4.4.3 OTA downloads but they fail an assert for build.prop. I've checked \system\build.prop and it if unaltered and contains the string the assert is linking for.

Do I need to unroot before upgrading? I just assumed that I would have to reroot after upgrading. I didn't expect a fail as I haven't altered the boot loader.

Yes you'll need to flash original FireWire with Odin but before proceeding with the flash run triangle away it should be ok then

FireWire? What's that? I don't think I flashed anything like that.

I'm not sure about Odin here. I never altered the stock recovery.

That page has some problems. Power+VolUp is needed to boot into recovery, not Power+VolDown. I can get into recovery and select install from external memory. I copied the update onto my sdcard but it still fails with the same assert fail

Verifying update package...
assert failed: get.prop("ro.product.device")== "jgedlte" || [...]

checking \system\build.prop I see the line
ro.product.device=jgedlte
as clear as day.

Build KOT49H.S001.131204
Android version: 4.4.2
Baseband version: I9505GUEUCML4

I followed Method 2. I see what you're saying now.

None of these upgrade methods worked. I still had assert failures. I removed SuperSU after restoring all changes I made to /etc.

Somehow this morning the phone failed to connect to data services. Several apps failed when they tried to access the network.

I eventually reflashed a 4.4.3 rooted image from here http://forum.xda-developers.com/show....php?t=2772043 and restored my Titanium Backup.

OTA upgrade to 4.4.4 succeeded after turning of SuperSU and reverting my change to \etc\permissions
