I don't think it is in Kies yet, as it shows MJ7 as being the current firmware.

Good point, just checked should be up in a few hours, hopefully (that's a good place to go.) Has anyone extracted a copy of the OTA that can be installed manually in Android Stock Recovery or sideloaded?

Just to let everyone know. I was on Mj7 running beans on slot 1 , scott's rom in stock slot. update kept failing even after unrooting so I odin'd back to stock mj7 then update was successful. I then used the latest version of Kingo app and rerooted successfully.

Waiting to see if this works with this update myself
If I remember I had to unfreeze & reinstall all the stock stuff too before the last one would take

Unless there is another file that is missing or modified, and is preventing the update from installing.
The only way to get custom gone is to odin to stock. You can unroot but your device will still show that it was rooted. I believe your true status is shown in the stock recovery.

Well, in download mode it showed my status as official with Knox 0x0 so not sure what the difference is in stock recovery. Either way I couldn't get update to take until I odin'd to stock. Keeping root in survival mode didn't bother me since I had used kingo before. Regardless , I now have the update with root so it's all good

YMMV, but all I did was rename the default clock app and odex back to their original names (I had renamed them so I didn't have multiple clocks), disabled SuperSU and set it to Survival mode and launched the update. It was successful. I then re-enabled SuperSu and all is well. I was pretty much bone stock except for Wanam, which I did not uninstall or even change anything. I did not have SafeStrap installed.

Can someone double check the home button hot spot bypass. It doesn't seem to work anymore!

One of the mentioned updates on the little graphic for the update was "Mobile Hotspot reliability has been improved" ..I figured they would fix that
Nexus 10 32GB 4.4.2 / Unlocked /Rooted
Nexus 7 16GB C8 4.4.2 / Unlocked /Rooted
LTE Galaxy Nexus 32GB 4.4.2 / Unlocked /Rooted
LTE Galaxy SIII 32GB 4.4.2 CM11 / Unlocked /Rooted
LTE Galaxy Note 3 4.3 / Rooted

"Executing sudo command."
