Default [Q] Upgrading stock ICS to Android 4.4.2 (OmniRom Unofficial)

Hi,

I am planning to install the shining new 4.4.2 build (OmniROM unofficial) on my US Acer A500. I have an (*gasp*, *laugh*) unrooted stock ICS (4.0.3, Kernel: 2.6.39.4+, Build: Acer_AV041_A500_1.033.00_PA_CUS1), which I want to upgrade to this OmniROM build. So far, reading the thread, this looks like the installation dependency tree:

[ -> : Depends on]
OmniROM (4.4.2) -> CWM 6.0.4.5 -> skrilax bootloader (V8) -> nvflash

Can anyone comment on if my understanding of the dependency tree correct? Should nvflash be my starting point for installation?

Any other notes/pointers?

Regards.

Hi,

meanwhile i upgraded the bootloader to Skrillax V.9. I think that's the lastest version and it works without problems for me.

Bye,
Florian

Hi Florian,
Thanks for your reply - using Google Translate, I could get the gist of it. Very helpful.
Have you also upgraded to 4.4.2 so far? What version are you running now?
Regards.

I just upgraded to 4.4.2 (build 4 20140426).

I already have installed Skrillax V9 bootloader

I downloaded from here:
http://forum.xda-developers.com/show....php?t=2705989
* CWM 6.0.4.5
** installing with fastboot.
** install drivers on PC
** install fastboot
** Connect tablet to PC and install CWM

* Build4-ROM-Image
** Boot to CWM
** Factory-reset
** put zip-file on sdcard and install it from CWM
** put Super-SU-zip on sdcard and install it directly after ROM-zip
** then reboot

It seems to work very well.

Florian

That sounds about right. I would recommend blackthund3r's tool though which makes installing the bootloader a bit easier. You'll also need fastboot to load the recovery into the secondary partition as the normal recovery partition is to small.
