I have used this method twice now & its worked both times, for all of you waiting to download the OTA kitkat update RINSE & REPEAT these steps
I'm not encouraging or discouraging doing this, but this method has downsides.
Furthermore, services like Hangouts and Gmail get messed up and don't sync automatically since the server doesn't recognize your device, that either you gotta wait till it's recognized again, or clearing data from both of them to reconnect them properly to the server.
Omg!!!! thanks sooo much youre awesome lol i been waitin for this update and with the steps you provided it realy worked first try!!!!!
