Question [Q] Going from JSS15R to KTU84P on rooted flo with TWRP 2.6.0.0

I tried flashing the KTU84P zip using TWRP, but that didn't work. From what I've read, I apparently need to flash stock recovery, do the OTA update, then flash TWRP again? Won't that get rid of my root?

Ideally, I don't want to lose my data or have to excessively fiddle around with tools to get root again, if possible. I've kept my tablet at 4.3 for months because I didn't want to do a ton of research for this, but WiFi issues forced me to try upgrading.

Thank you! I was under the impression that I could just flash the zip since 4.x updates seemed much more incremental than 1.6 to 2.2 and then 2.2 to CyanogenMod on my old CDMA HTC Hero. I guess that isn't the case though.

Mostly I didn't want to re-arrange my icons but thinking about it I can probably get Titanium Backup to back up everything in my tablet so that flashing a Google factory image won't be a pain...

You won't lose any data if you don't run the flash-all batch/script, and don't flash userdata.img.
