Default [Q] Been reading for 2 days!

Ok...I am ready for the abuse. I just don't want to screw this up. I have downloaded numerous files in anticipation of this all making sense. I know it is something so simple to do but I am just not getting it. Here is the deal. I am on Jellybomb which we all know is MJ4. I want to move to KitKat. I am thinking Freeza's Deodexed Stockisk rom. I know once I am there it should be fairly straight forward to flash Josh's KitKatKiller when it becomes available.

I am just hoping somebody can provide clear instructions on exactly how to do this. Thank you for any assistance provided.

Did u figure this out yet? I'm in the same boat and haven't quite made the full transition from HTC as far as knowledge goes.

What I'm thinking is just flash to NAB in odin then the twrp recovery... Maybe the other way around... Still waiting on a more transparent set of instructions.

I was way over thinking it. You just have to Odin stock Mj4 then Odin stock NAB then follow the directions in the following post and you will be golden. I would do a factory reset after mj4 Odin.

Here is stock mj4:

Why not just go from og MJ4 to NAB? Why go to stock? A bootloader is still defined by what it is even if its modified a bit, idk, guess it doesn't hurt anything not too right? lol

Honestly, I don't know. I just know Micmars said to, so I did

It only takes a little longer to do and everything flowed nicely from there!

Alright, so revert to stock MJ4 in odin, then NAB, then kitkat rom, then cf-root, TWRP, === Profit? When do you install the stock kitkat? So many posts refer to specific scenarios so it's getting me more confused here. It's early for me yet.

No, NAB is the stock KitKat rom.

1) Odin MJ4
2) After all done booting up (I would suggest) Booting into stock recovery and doing a factory reset. You get into stock recovery by holding volume up, the home button and the power button.
3) Odin NAB
4) Follow the directions in this post exactly. http://forum.xda-developers.com/show...php?p=50505723
5) Once you are all done doing that, you will be on Stock rooted KitKat. From there you can flash any new roms the same way that you did on Jellybean.

Ahh, okay. I thought NAB was bootloader only. Will give it a shot here in a few minutes. Gotta work up the caffeine bravery and hide my cat so he doesn't spontaneously combust.
