Default Upgrading to 4.4.2 - the simple guide! (all situations)

Downloads
1- stock 4.4.1 rooted - https://mega.co.nz/#!FhFiUCyK!SFmK_m...j98Ew1afv9iLiM

2 - the update - https://mega.co.nz/#!5gE1xRaY!5P3OWY...LiUze-sKwF1hgY

3- superuser - https://mega.co.nz/#!xk92nAZI!t2-Mhj...nETqnUdqFXkr9w

4- usb/fastboot file with command window opener - https://mega.co.nz/#!A4c2WYqJ!-XPtCj...RstKKgo76Um3tY

5- RECOVERY (after rebooting into updated rooted system) - for TWRP download - https://play.google.com/store/apps/d...ft.twrpmanager
Open, advanced, install recovery/twrp.


GOLDEN RULE!! - always make a backup before flashing anything!

*If you're COMPLETELY STOCK system wise but JUST ROOTED with custom recovery flash 2 then 3 then reboot system

*If you've MODIFIED the SYSTEM (deleted apps etc) (or are just unsure of what option) then flash 1, reboot system, then flash 2 then 3 and reboot system

*If you're completely STOCK then.....
Download 4 and unzip. (download 2 and place in the unzipped folder with all the files in)
And click the open command option.
Plug your phone in with usb debugging on and type 'adb devices' and enter ... It should return with a load of numbers..
Then type 'adb reboot bootloader' and enter, your phone will now reboot.
Use the volume keys to select recovery and press power button,
At the dead Android press power and volume up together quickly
Now you're in recovery.. Use the volume keys and find update from adb and press the power button to select.
Now back in the command window type 'adb sideload 422.zip' and hit enter
Once completed hit reboot system now

Hope this helps the millions of people asking the same question

If you're completely stock system wise but just rooted with custom recovery flash 2 then 3 then reboot

If you've modified the system (deleted apps etc) then flash 1, reboot, then flash 2 then 3 and reboot

If you're completely stock then you should (I've never done this) be able to flash just 2 in stock recovery and reboot

Hope this helps the millions of people asking the same question

If completely stock, you can't flash from stock recovery anymore. You need to do ADB SIDELOAD. Look on here or just google it. It's pretty quick and painless.

Your system must be modified? Did you flash no. 1 first and reboot so the system rebuilds?

Was rooted but I can't think of anything I did that would have modified system.

I went a head and flashed 1 first and that fixed the problem so something must have changed.

Does flashing the first file cause any data loss?

Nope, don't do any wipes, just flash
