I am running aokp 4.4 kitkat nighly and I wanted to update. When I update without wiping anything on top of my previous rom it works, but my google play is missing. Also , my folders and widgets went away leaving me with only gallery and setting on the main page. Google now was not there either.

How do I update without losing my data?

Do i have to wipe anything before flashing?


Thank you in advance

Gapps are stored in system which is formatted when you update, you have to flash gapps again.

Nightlys are not really for normal use so you shouldn't have any data that you're worried about losing on there.

I would think about trying another rom. You should be able to dirty flash an update for the rom that's already on your phone without losing anything.

Some nightlies can be a daily driver, just have to pick a developer who is well known for their work and not someone who just started learning last night!

Sure, you have to start somewhere, but I think you know what I'm saying.
