So I got an update notice this morning for my tmo note 2. My phone is rooted but still on stock 4.3 rom. My question is how can I safely update my phone? I can't just update because im rooted right? I'm assuming that the update is the 4.4 update.

If you have root only it should just update. But if you have frozen any apps or modified system files the UPDATE WILL FAIL.. If you are on Custom Recovery The UPDATE WILL FAIL...

You will Loose root of course
Hope this helps..

Do a backup in titanium backup or whatever you use then unroot in supersu and then do a factory reset and it may update fine for you if not you will have to go to an older firmware and do the ota to what your on now and do the ota for kitkat

If you are able to update then please let us know what the update is. I would like to know if it is in fact the long awaited 4.4.2 update.

I haven't updated yet. I'm actually scared of bricking my phone. Im trying to find some step by step instruction for this. I don't have a titanium backup and I don't know how to use them
