Question [Q] Unsure how to get to latest update - Rooted Stock

I currently have Stock 4.2.2 Rom - S-Off - Rooted - TWRP

How can I get to the newest Stock 4.3 (Radios, etc) ?

Is it easier to just flash stock recovery, then take the update, then flash TWRP and superuser back?

Or has someone made the update into a root-friendly flash-able zip yet?

Thanks in advance if this is a dumb question, but I wanted to ask so I get it right the first time.

So I can just flash these with no loss of data? Or do will I need to restore data after I flash the rom?


My plan would be:

1) flash "Odexed Full ROM"
2) flash "2.10.605.1 firmware"


That should put me latest update stock right? (I might need to re-flash superuser)

I can flash all of this through TWRP?

You cannot flash the firmware in twrp.
It has to be done following the instructions in the post.
I would do firmware and then the rom.
Put the rom on your internal storage before flashing the rom.
Flash the firmware as instructed, then in recovery flash the rom, reboot.
Do not try to reboot in between, it wont work.
If you do it in that order you won't have to wipe, you will be on the latest OTA and have a rooted boot.img.
Supersu is installed already. You can prevent it from updating or flash the newest one here.
Read the OP and post#2 and follow it you should be fine.

Yes you want odex coming from full stock...
