OTA Problems ?
« on: August 27, 2013, 09:29:59 PM »
Not having OTA Rootkeeper is a new one for me. I relied on that app only a handful of times, yet I surely took it for granted. I had an OTA update for 4.3 yesterday. I thought it was properly installed because I had a Supersu message popup warning about reestablishing root after the install. I am still rooted but apparently the update failed because I received another update. It failed as well but is hard to tell. The update does its thing and then boots to TWRP. No error message. I am thinking about storing my fresh root/ app install nandroid on the PC and going back to stock until all of these updates are finished.

I'm far from being an expert but I believe I read somewhere that the OTA update patches all the files correctly but fails at the very end when it sets the permissions. So you would be running the latest version but it will still say it is the earlier version.
As I said, I'm a newbie but maybe this will shed some light for you.

Thanks for the info. I am confused at how you can tell if the update was successful then?

Apparently they checked the files one by one.
I don't have the URL but I'm pretty sure it was on Xda where you can search for it.

Found this.

> It has something to do with supersu changing permissions that the update can't change. There is a fix for the supersu issue but all I did was follow

The new update will be JSS15Q, previous was JSS15J so check your"About tablet" settings... I took the update yesterday before rooting so not had this myself. I suppose an advantage to getting the 2nd gen N7 a month after the US launch.
