Hi
It's been a while since I've looked into this so would value your advice.

Nexus 5 running 4.4.2 rooted, unlocked and running Phil's touch recovery.

I've edited a couple of system files, build.prop & mixer_paths.XML to help with sound volumes. I have the original files still, if I can remember where they need copying back to..

The phone is now advising a software update to 4.4.3 is available.
What is the best way to do this, ideally keeping root etc.

Thanks. All help and advice is gratefully received.

The best and easiest way to update to 4.4.3 safely is making a nandroid of your 4.4.2 and flashing a custom 4.4.3 ROM that has pre root and dirty install over 4.4.2

Thanks.

I don't really want to run a custom ROM, I'd like to stick to rooted stock.
Any other options ?

Sorry if I've posted this in the wrong forum.

There is a 4.4.3 Stock ROM with SuperSU in the Android Development section. (The ROM is large also).

And for that you need to open new thread. It's sticky 4.4.3 questions or whatever goes there and no need for new thread! Sorry but next time read a little and respect comunity rules.

Sorted.

Downloaded the stock rooted ROM and su.
Flashed both from recovery. No wiping.

And seems to be working fine.
