Default Rooted 4.2 can't update ota?

My rooted 4.2 c5502 started showing ota for 4.3 (file size is 307.1Mb), I was hoping update via ota would retain the root. Unfortunately, after many tries, the update keep on failing.

When click on update, system will reboot and screen showing android icon with a progress bar. The progress bar will run for about 3 or 4 second and system just rebootsback to lockscreen and show a msg saying "could not install".

I assume this might be due to the dual recovery I installed? Before I try restore the recovery, anyone else able to update via ota and still got root?

Current Devices:
Sony Xperia ZR, Google Nexus 7

Thanks for the confirmation. I know for sure you can update through PCC as I did for another phone. I too rooted using vroot. Anyone else with other rooting method pls share the result.

In another thread a possible solution for this problem was mentioned: if you have renamed or deleted some original files (like system apk's or some other protected files) the upgrade routine recognizes it and stops the upgrade process.

In my case the problems were caused by removed apps, when I restored them, everything worked flawlessly.
