Guys, if you can't flash OTA because of custom kernel make it failed to verify, you can follow my steps:

- Flash CM (Any cm rom more recent than m3 i think) NO WIPE
- flash .21 base rom
- flash the ota you want

if you success on flashing the ota then you can flash root and custom kernel again :p
this way saves lot of time of wiping and restoring

Could it be, that there is no need to use the flashing-tool if there is a working recovery?
