I'm quite familiar with the Skipsoft Toolkits. I've used them plenty of times in the past.

Bought a Nexus 7 2013 today. First thing it wanted to do was update from 4.3 to 4.4.2. I did that. Then 4.4.3. Did that.

I now wanted to use the tooklit to unlock and flash a custom recovery so I can try out CleanRom.

There is no 4.4.3 option in the toolkit.

Question

Can I select the 4.4.2 Build and then unlock the bootloader and flash a custom recovery? This is all I need correct? I typically always used the All in one option in previous devices but since 4.4.3 isn't an option I can't.

While were at it, the other things the "All in one" flash does, such as Busybox, Rename Recovery Restore Files and Root. Do I need to do any of these? What is busybox? Why would I need to rename recovery restore files? Is unlocking bootloader and flashing custom recovery all I need to do to start flashing Roms?

Just making sure as I've always gone the "All in one" Route.

And Yes, I know I can do via ADB but Its been a long time since I've done it and would rather take the familiar route.
