[Q] Help upgrading to KitKat + re-rooting?
Hey guys! So, just a quick recap of my life with my Verizon Galaxy S4: I got it back in June and rooted it (using "I545ALL-IN-ONE-TOOL") within a couple hours of having it up and running. It is my first Android phone. I then disabled the service that persistently alerted me of Android updates (so that I would keep my root). I now would like to update to KitKat.
Currently, here are my phone's software specifications (I apologize if I include unnecessary information!):
Model number: SCH-I545
Android version: 4.2.2
Baseband version: I545VRUAMDK
Kernel version: 3.4.0-562219
Build number: JDQ39.I545VRUAMDK
I am just kind of lost as to how I would go about updating to KitKat. I would like to keep TouchWiz, because I use the IR and Camera features, as well as a few other things here and there that I would miss if I lost.
Finally, once I'm up to TouchWiz KitKat, I would like to root it, so I could disable/remove some bloaty parts of TouchWiz and just the general perks of rooting.
I have tried to look through the stickies a few times to find out how to do it on my own, but I kinda got confused.
Any help at all would be greatly appreciated, and let me know if any further information is needed.
