Prompt [Q] Upgrading from 4.2.2 to 4.4, Xperia S OpenSEMC

Just a quick question.

I have currently installed Opensemc Android 4.2.2 rom on my Xperia S, now considering to upgrade to the newest 4.4.2. Do i have to do a factory reset/complete data wipe before i install the 4.4.2 rom fresh, or do i just install it on top of the 4.2.2 one?

Matters very much coz im now not in my home country and if i do a complete wipe, whatsapp will be gone and i can't do verification (can't receive sms here with the number i use for whatsapp).

Thanks for great help!!!!
