Phone [Q] Help needed upgrading from 4.2.2 to 4.4

I have a rooted N4 running 4.2.2 and I want to upgrade to 4.4 (or above).
I have TWRP installed and Franco.kernel installed.

I have lots of apps installed, so I am looming for a way to upgrade without loosing my apps and data and music etc...
I dont mind loosing root, Franco kernel and twrp, I just want to able to upgrade to the newer versions that are being released. Can anyone give me an explanation on what needs to be done?
Sorry for the noobish questions, I am not an expert.

Take a backup because if your going to flash any new cusdtom rom from 4.2.2 to 4.4 your gonna have to clean flash. If you go back to stock you will still lose data. I only know data lost ways. Maybe someone else knows another way
Device: Nexus 4

ROM: The Schism
Kernel: Mahdi-EXP Kernel
Recovery: TWRP with MultiROM

We should refine Android a bit more right..? The Schism. Coming soon...
