Smile Update to 4.4.2

I did search but I couldn't find anything, sorry if it causes any offence.

I am having trouble updating to 4.4.2 for some reason. The bootloader is unnlocked and the device is rooted withTWRP recovery installed.

How would I go about updating whilst preserving all data etc?

Many thanks

You can flash an ota update, or fastboot flash the factory boot and system images.

If you factory flash, you will probably have to format /data to avoid issues.

Always read the OP's of a thread and the last 2 pages before asking questions, unless there has been an update - in which case, read the last 5 pages!

Thanks all, will have a rummage through later.

What do you mean by downgrade?

I was hearing good things about camera performance,

Sorry meant 4.4.2, late at night and I was tried.

Because you wrote 4.2.2 instead of 4.4.2.
