I am not unfamiliar with rooting a phone or loading a custom ROM, but im unsure about upgrading now that its no longer stock.
I have a GT-i9100 rooted and currently loaded with CWM 220.127.116.11 and Paranoid Android 3.60 (Android 4.2.2). I would like to upgrade to KK 4.4.2 Cyan Fox. What i want to know is how to go about this without killing my phone.
So far, from what have seen, i need to upgrade to a newer CWM that is 4.4.2 friendly, like This one by -Grift-. But the CWM 18.104.22.168 is a .zip, how do i load this? As far as I know only .tar files work when flashing with ODIN. You cant update from 22.214.171.124 to 126.96.36.199 from within CWM recovery mode using a .zip can you?
Once the CWM 188.8.131.52 is on, i should be able to load the ROM and GAPPS from the .zip files and boot into the new 4.4.2 OS right?
Will i need to wipe data and cache once the new 4.4.2. ROM is loaded, before i boot?
Would appreciate any input on this. Thanks
