Question [Q] HELP PLS! Error updating from 4.4 to 4.4.2

I have a rooted Nexus 7 2013 LTE with TWRP. When I tried to update from 4.4 to 4.4.2, it gave me an error saying there's unexpected contents in /system/bin/ping6

I've tried both auto updating directly from server and manually update from downloaded zip file. It gave me the same error msg.

Anyone knows how to fix it? Thanks!

Can you device still boot into Android/recovery/bootloader?

install stock 4.4 with full wipe.
after that the update works.
I tried it before without wiping and got errors like this.

I had a similar problem updating mines to 4.4.2. as well. Same error but mines was unexpected contents in /system/bin/mm-venc-omx-test720p. Even a factory reset didn't work. I had to flash the 4.4 factory image then I was able to sideload 4.4.2. Luckily they have already uploaded the factory image for 4.4.2 so you could flash that and you should be good to go.

Can you give me a link to download the 4.4 factory image? Thanks!

Try flashing a stock/custom rom first, and do a factory reset. If that doesn't work, use a factory image.

Note: flashing the factory image will wipe your device. Buuuuut...if you don't have an operational device to begin with, what do you have to lose?

Here is the page with all of the factory images for Nexus devices.
https://developers.google.com/android/nexus/images

Here is the exact link if you feel really lazy, but I suggest that you still take a look at the rest.

thanks alot for the link! I might flash it back to 4.3.1 because some apps/function don't work well after I updated to 4.4. I suspect that they won't work well in 4.4.2 either.

Compatibility is the problem. It's just a matter of time before the devs update their apps. I'm toughing it out on 4.4.2, while 4.3 is tempting at times. I do miss using Google Talk instead of Hangouts. The simpler interface is sooooo much faster. But not quite enough for me to jump an entire Android version.

If I have to go thru flashing factory image in order to update to 4.4.2, then I'd rather go back to 4.3.1 and wait until all my favorite apps get updated first. Unless 4.4.2 is really that much better it's worth going thru the trouble.
