Default [Q] Confused about upgrading

So my nexus 5s screen stopped working, and i took my one s out of the drawer. Its been like 2 years since i flashed a rom on this phone. (on 4.1 Viper) I dont remember seeing any of these RUU things. So how exactly do i upgrade my phone. Do i just downloaded the rom and flash it, and flash the boot.img like before or is there a new procedure?

It's the same. The RUU is to bring it back to stock.

ROM: CandyKat - Best so far!

It's the same. Flash boot.img if not s-off or get s-off and just flash the ROM.

What about h-boots are those required to be updated?

What HBOOT do you have now? Check in the boot loader (restart then power+vol down)

OK I see. If I were you I would use an RUU to update to a later version of software that has HBOOT 2.15.
Actually this is what I would do:

1: Run the correct RUU for your phone from one that moonshine.io supports:
http://moonshine.io/moonshine-downloads/
2: IF you want, then run moonshine.io to get S-OFF.
3: Flash a custom recovery like TWRP
4: Install ROM.

If you don't get S-OFF, then you need to flash boot.img.

If anyone disagrees with this, please chime in please.
