berndblb thanks for trying to decipher my post, your link is the thread I refer to when I said "I'll probably use the FUU 4.4.4 to update initially", meaning the DOTTAT_VZWM8_S_OFF_4.4.4_FUU.zip.
What I'm asking is, if I decide to reflash 4.4.4 firmware at anytime, and rather than redoing the entire FUU above, can I put -
4.4.4 STOCK RECOVERY
4.4.4 FIRMWARE ZIP (NO BOOT.IMG OR RECOVERY)
All of the above, into a single zip to be flashed as a complete firmware package? Maybe I'm asking something I don't need to worry about.
I anticipate flashing a ROM that will need the Lollipop firmware. But if I want to go back to a 4.4.4 firmware ROM, I just wanted to have a firmware only zip with everything in it. I haven't come across one. But, do I even need it, dunno.
Am I making sense? Understanding the firmware options, I'm a bit over my head.
