I have a One GPE converted from the T-Mobile version. It works perfectly and I was able to install the previous 4.4.2 update without any issues. However, now when I try to install the 4.4.3 update it aborts with the message below.


Verifying current system...
"system/build.prop" has unexpected contents.
Installation aborted.


I donít recall editing the build.prop file and I donít have a backup. Iíve tried flashing the update in both TWRP and the stock recovery but it fails either way.


Any ideas about what I can do?

You could restore build.prop from the previous ota.zip or ruu your phone and take all ota to the latest version

I tried pulling the build.prop file from the 4.4.2 update but all I found was a build.prop.p file, which I can't seem to open properly on my mac. I only get a few lines of garbled text. As for your ruu suggestion, sorry, I'm a little fuzzy did you mean to flash the 4.4.3 ruu or re-flash the 4.4.2 ruu? Thanks!

I have the exact same issue on my nexus 5... I wonder who's responsible, maybe they have a backup file. I used NOMone Resolution Changer, you?

Edit: found it in open build prop website. Unfortunately your phone is not there.
