Default [Q] Rooted upgrade to 4.4.2 process

Hey everyone,

When 4.4.2 is released for the X, what do I need to do to upgrade? I have the Verizon DE Moto X stock rooted. I assume I just need to reflash the stock recovery, install the update, reflash TWRP, and flash the root zip. Is that right?

Thanks!

I am in the same situation and I was thinking the same thing. I planned on flashing (through fastboot) the stock recovery from the factory image I downloaded from Motorola, install update, reflash (through fastboot) TWRP, and then let TWRP root when I reboot.

I sure hope it is that easy but for some reason I am thinking it's not. Makes me appreciate my GNex a little more.

You also need to have root removed and any mods with root access removed as well, any system files frozen, deleted must be re-installed
