I am running stock Verizon rooted ROM w/ TWRP and a few basic mods. But I can't find anyway to upgrade to KK without wiping. Is that REALLY the case!?!

Please say its not so!

You need to restore the factory recovery to flash the update.. Easiest way is to return the phone to stock. I'm not sure if there is any other way.

I used this to go from stock 12b 4.2.2 with TWRP to Malladus 24A 4.4. It doesn't wipe your internal data. https://docs.google.com/document/d/1...ilebasic?pli=1

It still wipes your rom settings, I think that's what he's trying to avoid, I'm just not sure if the stock recovery itself is available for flashing so the OTA can be installed over a stock rom.
