My Galaxy S4 is rooted, but not running a custom ROM. It's currently running 4.2.2 and it downloaded the 4.3 update, but when I apply it, it fails. Is it failing because it's rooted? How can I get it to update to 4.3,or even better, 4.4.2 (Stock ROM, just want it rooted)?

Try searching its not hard. And yes it won't accept because you're rooted and if it did take it you would lose root.

Is there anyway to just download the 4.4.2 update and install it? I want it to be EXACTLY the same as if it had come OTA from Sprint.

How do I do this? Do I have to unroot the phone first?

I'm wondering how you achieved root. Search and learn.

No. If you don't know how to use Odin you have a lot of reading to do.

I honestly don't remember how I rooted the phone. That was 7 months ago. It is completely rooted though, I can do what I need/want to with it, but I want Kitkat and root.

Well first of all you will need Odin, Samsung drivers, and this file on your PC.

Are you in the correct area? Your carrier says Verizon. Their gs4's suck to root.
