    I'm still running 4.2.2 and my google wallet keeps saying tap & pay will not work after April 14th so I need to upgrade to 4.2 which I think is kitkat, Since I'm rooted on the stock rom what do I need to do in order to upgrade to 4.4?

    Yeah but if I unroot will the update OTA happen right away or do I need to force it or anything?

    Also after updating to 4.4 I switch back to the rom I had before? If that's the case why not just switch roms which have 4.4 included?

    When you unroot and do a factory data wipe it should be soon after that the update would be downloaded . now if the root works you are good the only thing is you are at 4.2.2 . that ROM you are running would be old I would say get something new . but your biggest thing is if root is available for your device .

    Wait let me understand something first..

    Now you are saying unroot.. but why can't I just flash a new rom that has 4.2 with it?

    I think you asked how or why you didn't get the new update . as long as you stay rooted your device will not receive a update . if you want to receive a official kitkat from your carrier you would need to unroot . remember that this is a official kitkat not a custom rom .

    I ended up changing the rom as well.. so far I like it kitkat is nice for the fact that i don't need to do a few things to search.

    I was not expecting it to keep my same wallpaper I had before I changed the rom which was a nice touch.
