    Hi all. I have a US I535 Verizon S3 which I rooted when I got it and kept rooted through an update with Voodoo Rootkeeper. I have since temp unrooted and tried to apply the OTA update to 4.3 (I don't have time to wipe, install via recover, and put everything back) and the upgrade is failing to apply around 25% with this message found in /data/log/recovery_log.txt:

    Update Fail. File is written. status = 7
    Installation aborted.

    Does anyone know how to correct this either by updating the xml file or fixing whatever may be the "true cause" of that error? I've been looking for a feature.xml from the original Verizon 4.1.2 that I can compare/copy but.. no luck. I'm trying/hoping not to wipe my device and lose my settings. Don't care about boot loaders, though I do hope to get root back (I see a new approach that is similar to the original I did with 4.1.1 so I don't think I need to "save" my root.)

    Here's the text of my /system/csc/feature.xml that the is complaining about:

    Thanks to anyone who can help!
