Mine, downloaded the whole update but stopped installing it at 28%. Tried it 2 times and there was no pop up error.
Any idea why?

Tried a 3rd time after uninstalling Safetrap and still no go after 28% on the installing process.
Update Failed is the message and then the phone reboots

Guys: If you are not on stock MK2 then update to NB1 will fail - You will need to ODIN back to stock MK2 then accept OTA

Link to ODIN to stock => http://forum.xda-developers.com/show....php?t=2621279

Or flash straight to NB1 via the .tar files on this post:

Sorry, OP. Rooted phones almost always never get OTA. Unroot if you really want it (there's no root for AT&T KitKat yet!). However, if it still won't let you get KitKat (usually errors at 24-25%?) then I don't know how else to help.

If I'm wrong, feel free to correct me!

There is now Kit Kat 4.4.2 with root. XDA did the seemingly impossible once again. Listed in the all things mk2 & nb1 guide.
