Just wanted to get a few pointers on the update process once 4.2.2. factory images are released.

I'm currently running CM 10.1 latest nightly complete with Faux's custom kernel. When the factory images are released, i want to take advantage of the new radio and bootloader, that hopefully will be shipping, along with anything else without having to fully wipe and start from fresh.

Please correct me if i'm wrong on any of my thoughts about how to update below, or if i've missed anything

Bootloader - extract from factory image and flash in fastboot with
fastboot flash bootloader bootloaderxxxx.img

Radio - extract from factory image and flash in fastboot with
fastboot flash radio radioxxxx.img

Kernel - hopefully faux will update once source drops and can be flashed via recovery

ROM - hopefully CM will update with 4.2.2 is AOSP and can be flashed in recovery, along with updated GAAPS

Am i missing anything else??

Thanks

Yeah I'll check that out before I do anything, fingers crossed it will be good!
I haven't missed anything out then, bootloader, radio, kernel, ROM is all there is to update?

Just not to start a new thread. Can anyone conform for me this: currently stock everything - except running CWM recovery.

I'll have to flash the stock recovery before trying to get the OTA update?

Stock everything, never been rooted.. will the OTA update erase any data whatsoever? When can we expect it?

No the OTA will not erase anything. As for when you will get it? It should be soon. If you're impatient you can flash it manually buuuut i'd hold off on that becuase of all of the" help trouble after updating to 4.2.2" threads popping up recently.
