Default [Q] Error when installing kitkat update

This is a repost from the 4.4 discussion thread, I decided it would be more appropriate to ask here.

I still can't update. I've tried 4 times now (each time I have to re-download the update, it's super annoying). Each time I've tried, it fails at 27% and it just says error. After the reboot, it will say can't install update, please update using a computer (kies) or go to the nearest samsung center.

I really don't want to have to factory reset. I've tried clearing cache and making it as factory settings as possible, but still nothing. I'm completely stock, not rooted with official device status... What the hell samsung? Also, I downloaded the latest kies and it says my firmware is up to date, so that's not gonna work.

Any advice? Thanks!

Assuming you are attempting to d/l the update via WiFi, correct?

Something else to try is clearing data for (I believe) Google Framework and re-attempting the update. This worked on my son's S3.

Yep, I'm downloading over wifi, but I can try clearing data for Google play services. Thanks! I'll let you know if it works.

Paulitics,

Did you ever root your phone? I only rooted my to do the hot spot hack then unrooted mine is also failing at 27%.

Actually, I did at one point I was rooted, but I unrooted and factory reset. My device says official, but it's probably not good enough for an ota update to pass. I plan on flashing mj4 later using Odin and factory resetting to get completely stock.

That would be wise. Simply unrooting by itself doesn't take you to bone stock IF the reason you rooted in the first place was to, say, debloat or otherwise hack some functionality onto this bad boy.
