This is what I'm about to use. It installs all pieces of the LJ7 firmware including recovery and radio. There's a root zip you can flash afterward to keep SU access. After that, I will setup SuperSu Pro to survive OTA updates and then run the MA6 OTA through the stock recovery. If you don't have SuperSu Pro or VooDoo OTA, you can always flash TWRP through Odin, and then flash your root zip, boot and then make your backup of the stock ROM.

As long as you can preserve root, I think taking official updates is a good idea. You get the rom, you get the radio, you get any additional firmware updates, and you have a new base from which to keep your stock backup that everyone says you ought to keep. Besides, with Samsung, it's so easy to root a device. Just load Odin and flash a recovery. Flash an su.zip and boom, you're back in business. It's not like taking an update on an HTC device where you have to worry about the new boot loader (unless you had S-Off).

Hate to be *that guy* buuuut.

A.) This does not belong in the Development section. The sticky here says what belongs and what doesn't, and stock ROM patches are not custom development.

B.) This was already in the general section. No need to repost.

Just trying to help keep the place tidy and in order.

Don't think it will. You'll need to go back to LJ7 or just give it a few days and someone will post the full stock ROM - hopefully will all of the root/no root and wipe data/preserve data permutations.

my mistake for posting. I thought under the R and D it says:

'[R&D] - Research & Development for Devs only, when gathering data for a new projects'

this is gathering data for projects. im sure the rest of the devs will be upgrading their base off the new official update.
i always thought that the only 2 places for roms were in development and original dev.

my bad
