- and copy it to the SD. Then boot into recovery and update using the zip file? Or do I need to do something a bit more complicated? I read on another forum (hotukdeals I think) that you couldn't go from jellybean to kitkat as an upgrade as it sticks in a boot loop. So thought I would ask the experts instead!
Thanks in advance for any help.
No, you cannot do that. Kitkat requires a new set of files to install it. You need a new CWM and new gapps in addition to the ROM you download from that link. Go to the dummies guide linked in my signature to get the files and instructions.
