Tutorial [Q] 4.3 update keeps failing, rooted

my phone keeps showing the update to 4.3 but it never seems to go through. my phone just reboots. I am not an experienced rooter. Do i have to undo?

You need to have stock recovery in order to take the update. Search for the mja tar file that you flash through odin and wont erase data but it will flash over all stock images to take the update. Be warned stock 4.3 has Knox which keeps track if you root your device again. It trips a counter and as of right now is permanent.

If your phone is not completely stock the OTA update will not work

If you want 4.3 minus the bootloader you can check this out: http://forum.xda-developers.com/show...php?p=41384294

This of course is if your still on the MF9 bootloader....
