Default flashing 4.4.3 questions

I have slim kat and trinity kernel on my Nexus 5 on 4.4.2

If i flash 4.4.3 on to my nexus 5, will it erase my phone to factory settings?

What is the best way to flash this update on to my phone.



thanks

Why not just flash the weekly (possibly unstable) Slimkat 4.4.3 build or wait for the stable release?

Edit: Read the stickies, this section is NOT for help questions.

Upgrading to a new Android version requires a clean install (it's recommended at least) so backup your data first.

It's recommended, definitely

That said, most of us SlimKat users have successfully dirty flashed with no bugs or ill effects
