Default [Q] [SOLVED] Unlocked/Rooted with S-On want OTA

I would like to install the AT&T OTA of 4.4.2 but have a custom recovery and am unable to upgrade. I am rooted with the stock 4.3 ROM and have the twrp recovery installed. I have S-ON. I've searched around trying to find a way to get this to work but can't seem to figure it out. I've tried looking around for an AT&T 4.3 stock recovery to try and flash it but can't seem to find one. The one from the Dev sticky page is not available for download. Can someone detail the steps I have to perform to get the 4.4.2 OTA from AT&T. Thanks in advance.

[SOLVED]

OK, problem fixed and 4.4.2 installed from OTA. I had relocked the bootloader on my phone so... start from scratch. Steps to resolve

1 - Unlock Bootloader
2 - Get S-Off on device (Makes everything easier). I used Firewater (http://firewater-soff.com)
3 - Flash the AT&T 3.17.502.3 (4.3) RUU from here (http://www.htc1guru.com/dld/ruu_m7_u..._signed_2-exe/). You may need a different one if not on AT&T
4 - Start phone, check for update. Let it download. Cake.

Now off to redo all the settings on my phone. Hope this helps someone else.

You can extract recovery.IMG from the ATT 4.4.2 OTA update if you can't find anything else.

It downloaded and attempted to install, then failed half way. Anything else I have to do before I update? Do I have to lock my bootloader again or unroot?
