So I have just bought my galaxy .gt-I9300 and it is running android 4.0.4 now I'm not new to rooting and installing custom roms but with Samsung I am, as I was HTC...iv searched but cannot seem to find a thread that lists how to upgrade from 4.0.4 to Kitkat so I was wondering if anyone could point me in the right direction....


Thanks in aadvance

Basically, what you need to do is to flash latest TWRP custom recovery via Odin to your phone.

TWRP: http://forum.xda-developers.com/gala...overy-t1943592

After that you don't really need to root even if they tell you so in most general guides. You can move straight on to downloading the custom ROM you wanted to your SDcard, boot into recovery and flash zipfile from there.

Make sure you understand what you do otherwise chances are to brick your device. Follow guides exactly, never flash a file not intended for your specific device.
