Default [4.3] 1/14/14 i537 AT&T OTA file

This is the .cfg file of the 4.3 OTA for the Samsung Galaxy S4 Active (i537) from AT&T on 1/14/14 for those who are unable to receive OTA because they are not on MF3. (The file doesn't download as a zip via OTA)
Using this on another device would likely cause problems so I wouldn't suggest it.
Also, I did not update because I want to keep root.

Instructions:
1) Download the .cfg file (links below)
2) Copy it over to your phone's internal storage
3) Using a root manager app like 'ES File Manager' or 'Root Browser', copy the .cfg file from internal storage to /data/fota
4) Make sure you have KNOXAgent.apk and wssyncmldm.apk in /system/app for this to take place. A lot of people either changed the name, deleted, or moved the apk for rooted purposes.
**If you replaced Knox and wssync, you MUST reboot for effects to take place since the odex tells the apk what to do on boot**<<
5) Go to Settings>More>About Device>Software Updates>Continue Update

OR the method below which worked for some people (I can't confirm this works or not)

1) Download .cfg file (links below)
2) Change file to a .zip
3) Copy to phone's external storage (the internal will get wiped)
4) Flash via regular recovery

MD5 for .cfg file: F43D00ABDC4FE4D5BFB305CC6598FEB3

If you run into any problems, I won't be much help since I'm not a dev.
REMEMBER! You will lose root with the update. Don't say you didn't know because the warning is here<<<<

On MF2 with my fingers crossed that this update to 4.3 is real.
Anyone gone through the process?

Would it be possible to get some help getting some stock files from the /system/app folder? I modded/removed a few of the stock apps and seem to have lost a big chunk of my original backups. I believe these apps are why the update fails for me as the updater script checks a bunch of the files SHA1 checksums. Seeing as on my phone these apps are missing or modded I figured if I could acquire the stock copies it may finally work.


Files I need, and corresponding odex if possible: (a full copy of the /system/app folder would be awesome if possible)

Blurb.apk
Chrome.apk
Flipboard.apk
Peel.apk
Phonesky.apk
PlusOne.apk
SamsungWatchON.apk
SecLauncher3.apk

I may also need "/system/media/shutdown.qmg" because I know at one time I had changed it, but I cant for the life of me remember if I put the original back

Default Won't work?

Continue update is still greyed out for me too...

I was on stock MF3 and rooted with activeroot only so I could copy this to the /data/fota folder.
