Exclamation [Q] I know 4.4.2 has been out a while but...

So a long while ago now I got me a smart new Nexus 7 (2013) and rooted and installed Xposed (currently running GB).

Anyhow, I neglected to update my device to 4.4.2 at the time when it hit the notifications bar because of some issues I'd heard about. However, now I'm thinking, hey most apps will be optimized, including Xposed modules, but then this sprung into my mind....

Will updating my rooted/Xposed Nexus mess it all up?

I went from JB to KK months ago and run xposed for a lot of things. I am currently on Purity Rom but was on rooted stock. I haven't had any issues and have never said "wish I was still on Jellybean" to myself.
If you have custom recovery you can always make a nandroid backup and revert.
You will have to reinstall xposed and your modules but I use Titanium Backup and never had an issue.
If you are already using GB there is a version for 4.4.2 that's as good if not better. IMHo.
Rooted and installing Xposed the sky is the limit in terms of themes and roms.
