Now - I got the message that KK is available OTA, so I figure - fine, I'll have it installed and then deal with rooting later.
Here is the bad part - it said, "rebooting device" (right after I clicked on Install), and booted into TWRP recovery. I can't get it past it - and (of course), I don't have any backup on the phone....
So, I figure that I perhaps could download the IMG file and install it via TWRP. Fine. Except that when I connect the phone to the usb (Windows 8.1 64-bit), nothing doing. Does not come up in the list of devices.
WTF x2, in fact!
