Default [Q] Right Approach for KK from JB

I was on Aosp 4.4, but due to some reason i had to restore back to stock. Now I'm unrooted and have cwm backup of aosp 4.4.
will following be my right approach to return back to aosp?
1) Root using Shaans method
2) Flash cocore with cwm using ukf
3) restore my aosp 4.4 cwm backup

OR
Should i flash aosp rom from step 2 and then restore backup?
AOSP 4.4.2 on GT-I9070.
Carpe Diem.

I guess you could use the method 2 by Frapeti. Due besides you get cocore kernel, cwm already be installed automatically.

Then flash the ROM AOSP yours, enter cwm and restore your previous AOSP ROM through CWM.

FAQ:
Does it increase binary counter? No
Do I need to be rooted? Yes, of course.

I think that you should install AOSP again, the same way you did first time. Then go to recovery and restore backup. On 4.4 based ROMs we have swap on preload partition. And that partition is partitioned in differend format from the one when you are on stock. So it might be a problem.
