How to update to Android 4.3 on your rooted Nexus 4

A while ago upon applying the freshly received Android 4.3 OTA update on my Nexus 4 the following happened:


Although the error message looked rather troubling after rebooting Android got successfully updated to 4.3 to my surprise.

Even though my phone got updated some days later the update re-appeared among my notifications. This time I went over the same process just to make the nofication disappear. Some days later when the update notification popped again I really wanted to get rid of it on the long term so I delved deeper. As it turns out the solution is surprisingly easy.

1) Unroot your phone in SuperSU.


2) Apply the update.


3) Reinstall SuperSU through CWM.

That's it, enjoy!
