Default New kitkat sticky???

Is it that time for a moderator to post a 4.4 related sticky including all the updated methods and apps ( SELinux enabled twrp for one) I just figured it would reduce a lot of redundant posts. Even though I agree people should read the @#$%ing OP's in every thread... Maybe a sticky would get their attention since OP's apparently aren't? Just a suggestion. Im probably just rambling..

Moved out of Dev into Q&A.

If such a thread does not exist in General or Q&A or Dev and you want to post up a really good collection and keep up with it, then we might look at making it a sticky.

Hell yeah.. I personally wouldn't consider myself qualified to be writing stickies, as I'm no expert at this stuff. But then again I guess all you have to do is read OPs. The devs do a pretty good job explaining how to install these ROMs safely and properly. I've been installing ROMs no problem since I joined xda. No prior knowledge of coding and/or Linux at all, just a mere power-user of Windows OS. But when I read some of these posts my jaw drops... It makes me feel like an all knowing god of installing ROMs.. Which I'm far from.. Lol. I was inspired to make the initial suggestion of a sticky after reading the 100,000th (sic) post asking which twrp to use for 4.4 KitKat. But it would be in vain as the non researched curiosity of fellow xda posters will continue..

Actually I think a sticky is a great idea.. I just got this device and when trying to decide what ROM to get, most of the OP didn't specify exactly how to install the ROM.

I tried 1 but it didn't work in twrp, I looked it up on Google and found a post about philz CWM. So I ended up going with cm11 nightly, but yeah..so if anyone out there can't figure out how to install the new roms (SElinux based), use philz cwm. (And don't forget fastboot flash boot boot.img if s-on)

I personally think people need to start going all the way with s-off if they are going to flash custom ROMs. The current recommended method is rumrunner I believe.

That will change soon though!! As 4.3 OTA update is coming out soon for us.. Actually... If a sticky was compiled im sure it would be best to wait after the 4.3 update.. As that is obviously the end of the line of updates for the glorious life the Jewel has had since being released..

I wouldn't mind putting something together. I was thinking of something that included both TWRP & CWM recovery options, along with links to all the current KK builds for our device.

The biggest issue I've seen is that users don't read (or don't understand) that you specifically have to use a recovery that is SE-Linux enabled, and that the standard TWRP recovery available from Goo or TWRP's site won't work.
