Default [Q] updating to 4.4.1

my previous phone was a locked one. to take ota updates i would have to revert back to a stock backup to take the ota. with n5, is this still necessary? can i simply flash a 4.4.1 rom like the updated cataclysm to get up to date since it includes the 4.4.1 kernel too? or am i missing other necessary files from the official ota?

Well yea. If you flash a rom based on 4.4.1 you should have all of the official changes merged into the rom.

Except for the new bootloader and radio. I would go back to stock, flash the update, and then flash a ROM. Then you'll be all 4.4.1.

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!
