I got set_metadata_recursive: some changes failed.

Installation aborted.

I am using the recovery from the GPe Conversion Thread. I think it's being caused by the fact I am using the rooted version.

And I can't enter the stock recovery. I can press recovery and then it's displayed the android figure and it's loading...after that it's displayed the figure with a red triangle and nothing happen. :(

I had the recovery from that thread and the rooted GPe version and it updated with no problems although not manually from recovery but automatic from OTA

when i get to the holding power and up part I always wait until the buttons start to flash and then i let off after its flashed like 5 times

Turn off your device, hold power + down until it switches on, then when it goes into the menu, use your volume down keys to move to recovery - select recovery by hitting the power button (quickly - dont hold).

Then an android with its front open should appear, hold volume up and press the power button (quickly - dont hold) (several errors may occur saying mount sd card failed). If you don't see a blue text menu, keep trying pressing the volume up button, then the power button (quickly - dont hold)

It will a bring up a menu where you can select to install from phone storage (press power button to select, volume up/down to scroll)(apply from phone storage), my update was located not in '/' but in '0/'

Thanks for the write up. I get to do all that but when I select install from phone storage the screen says rebooting. It seems like it fails and then it throws me out.

I decided to take a risk and sideload the update with TWRP.

Don't. It tries to update the firmware and fails, and KitKat fails to boot (you get coloured lines) because it does not like the firmware. My fault, I'll boot into TWRP, backup and re-run the 4.3 RUU.

Damn. And I -didnt- back up.

****. Etc.

Guess I know what to do when I get home from work today.
