Model - Verizon Galaxy S4 SGH-I545
Current ROM - Android Revolution HD 2.1
Baseband - VRUAMDK
Android Version - 4.2.2
Bootloader - Obviously locked.
Rooted - Yes
I want to install 4.4 KitKat on the phone.. So wanna know.. which recovery to install and how to install.. whether by flashing zip in the Custom Recovery which I have.. or using ADB.. And the prerequisites for doing so.. Like baseband upgrade or anything which is needed before going ahead.. There is no specific guide here which would tell what all steps to follow.... and what are the requirements..
also a number of youtube videos available. If you phone is mdk and you haven't taken any OTA's you are sitting pretty as you can do loki, have a choice of several custom recoveries and install any ROM developed for the verizon S4
