Default How to update Android at Franco Kernel?

I really need help! I currently have Android 4.4.2 with franco.kernel. I would like to update to Android 4.4.3. So I found the instructions of this type:http://nexus5.wonderhowto.com/how-to...pdate-0155334/

Everything is OK to a point 6. Shows a console and upload the files but error pops up.



I use Nexus Root Toolkit.
How to fix it? NO WIPE of course.

Stop using toolkits. They tend to do more harm than good.

Download the factory images of 4.4.4 and then flash system, radio and boot manually via fastboot. This will bump your android version to 4.4.4 with everything stock.

If i have 4.4.2 I can go directly to 4.4.4?

When I flash system and boot manually it does not lose data?

Yes Sir, you can!

Nope, you won't loose any data. Only if you flash the userdata.img will you loose all data from /sdcard.

You could also un-root temporary with OTA RootKeeper to update your system

Since we're all putting our 2 cents in, here's mine


Just download the full rooted stock ROM in android development and flash it without wipe from recovery.

i constantly tell people to do this, its the easiest way out, by far. yet people seemed determined to make it as hard for themselves as possible.

I just copy paste from my clipboard manager, I say it that often

It's actually fewer steps anyway.

OTA = revert system changes, boot recovery, flash, re-flash recovery, re-root
Rooted stock = boot recovery, flash

No brainer really. Flashing an OTA if rooted is a fool's errand
