Default Can I jump from 4.04 stock to CM11

Title says it all. Do I need to ease into 4.4.2 when coming from stock ICS, or can I just take the plunge?

You need to have the latest recovery installed before you can flash >4.4.

Thank you, I did put the newest CWM on the phone. I didn't know if I had to upgrade to JB before switching right up to 4.4.2, or if I needed to jump to CM10 first. I had a phone that required you go to at least CM9 before moving into 10. Thank you for the reply.

You can go from ICS to JB to KK and back to ICS if you want. It doesn't matter.

Once you have latest recovery installed you can flash away

Thanks guys, that was the answer I was looking for. Just wanted to play it safe before doing anything.
