    It's not because you are rooted, but you must have made one or more changes in /System. If you edited build.prop, or installed Stickmount (changes the debuggerd file), or modified or froze any system apps you will get the error. Your error message on the update identifies the file that failed verification. You'll need to provide that information for anyone to help. You should really search. There are tens if not hundreds of threads on the 4.3 update here and other forums such as XDA.

    This app will tell you what went wrong. The update zip that your N7 pulled down is located in /cache/

    When you located it, long press it to choose it and run it.

    It will give you a detailed log that will be copied to the clipboard.

    Post it here so we can further assist.

    I believe the OTA zip would be somewhere in /cache although I could be wrong

    I had this problem, and saw the issue was debuggerd which was modified by stickmount. For some reason uninstall of stickmount didn't bother to put back the debuggerd.backup file, and when I went into recovery and tried to put back the file, it somehow managed to delete both copies (which made for much fun for a while). I eventually got the Nexus 7 4.2.2 system image (wifi version) downloaded, and after many more struggles, got the debuggerd extracted from it and installed in /system/bin.

    It seems to finally be updating to 4.3 now (at least is is long past the initial verification stage).

    Go into /cache/ and long-press the zip inside, using OTA Verifier.

    i will type down wat ota verifier says. Warning selected.zip file (/cache/ f9da7cd09b9433c04981d00fe2ada7f68cc21bd.signed-nakasi-JWR66V-FROM-JOP40C.F9DA7CD0.ZIP)DOES NOT CONTAIN A UPDATER -script file(should be located in META-INF/COM/GOOGLE/ANDROID/UPDATER-SCRIPT0;THIS ALSO IMPLIES THAT THE SCRIPT MIGHT NOT BE SIGNED (cant git copy paste to work ) hope this is good

    Sounds like a bad download, which is weird for an OTA. Not sure about that warning. I'll ask around.

    Just flash the rooted 4.3 from my link above and save us all a lot of pain. :D

    I was able to download and install the 4.3 OTA without a problem, which was actually quite a surprise (I was expecting a validation error since I'm rooted). Unfortunately, it appears I've lost root as the result of it, and several of my root apps are now non-functional. Will the procedure outlined at the link above enable me to have a fully rooted 4.3 even if I'm not coming from 4.2, or will there be problems if I flash it as indicated?
