You need the stock recovery to be able to apply the OTA

Can't I do something like this - http://goo.gl/9d9Xoo??
I read on in other forums that updating to the latest version of CWM will also fix the issue, but ROM manager says that the latest model is not compatible with One Max!

There is no 4.4.2 for HTC One Max yet only HTC One which is NOT going to work on your device. Give it a couple more weeks.

That sorta depends on which carrier you have. Some have gotten the update already.

Must be International?? According to HTC neither Sprint nor Verizon has been released yet: http://www.htc.com/us/go/htc-software-updates/

If this is the case than sacthegreat is going to need to flash stock rom in order to successfully receive the update.

Yep...his home country is India. Sounds like his biggest prob is the custom recovery he's trying to flash the ota with.

Can't wait for the ota to land stateside

yup.. .got the OTA for my T6UL today morning. It downloaded alright, but couldn't install. Guess I will revert to stock recovery and check. Need to research now as to how to install stock recovery,
and if that will remove my root or S-off!!

Updating will most assuredly remove your root but it's not a huge deal to re-root. It won't change your s-off. Hopefully you did a full Nandroid before you installed your custom rom, It will only take you a couple steps and a few minutes to get back to where you started. If not you will have to hunt down the stock rom and flash, which shouldn't be all that difficult either. Whichever you end up doing, I would perform a fresh titanium backup of JUST your apps. This way you can get right back to where you are after you update! Good luck
