So im on 4.4.2 right now with twrp and timur's kernel FI 2013 installed on the tablet. I keep getting an update message, and it will download 4.4.3 and restart, but it restarts into twrp, which is why, I'm guessing, the update doesn't install. What would be a good solution to updating the tablet to 4.4.3, or.4 if it is available? thanx.
Assuming you haven't modified any /system files the ota wants to update, the next time the update boots you into twrp, it will not automatically install, you must flash the ota manually, you will find the ota zip in /cache...you will have to flash the stock kernel before doing anything though...and if you get an error about a modified file in /system, you will have to revert the change or dirty flash the stock system.img...wipe dalvik though...after flashing the ota wipe dalvik and cache.
If I flash the stock kernel wouldnt that get rid of timurs that I have now. That kernel is the only reason I have this thing. Just correct me if im wrong but your saying flash back to stock, install updatesthen reflash timurs? Why cant I just try and find a clean 4.4.4 zip which I have looked for but never found, and flash it through twrp instead of relying on the nexus' s self update. I looked in the destination u gave me and it wasnt there. Could this be because /cache is a temporary storage location and I have to do this immediately after the download
Just from the way you described that to me i can tell that its going to take some time for me to relearn how to do all of this. Are there really any huge benefits to updating from 4.4.2 to .4 that would really make this worth it? Also if I did decide to put all of this effort into it, is there a way that i can save things like my preferences and my homescreen setup and widgets when i do attempt it? thanks
