Uhh, system update to 4.3 downloaded today. I'm scared . . .
What. In. The. World. Got the "System update downloaded" notification this afternoon, and was puzzled since I got this a little over three weeks ago for 4.3, an experience that soft bricked my phone and ruined by life for a few days:
Well, lo and behold, today's system update claims to be for 4.3 again:
Only I'm already ON 4.3.
Finally got everything rooted again and set up the way I want, and it's like Google knows it's time to come in and bork my phone again. I did a little poking and saw that this is no doubt the update from JWR66V to JWR66Y:
Only after the last experience, I'm friggin terrified to mess with this and possibly end up in a bootloop or stuck at the X screen forever again. (I'm rooted, no custom ROM, just custom launcher.) EDIT: I should add that, since the last update, I've updated my radios to be able to use 4G LTE, installed the Android browser and all my bookmarks, and made a slew of other customizations, so I'm annoyed that this update comes three weeks on the heels of everything I set up.
Should I try the OTA install or flash the OTA zip files in CWM recovery like the article suggests? Most pain-free ways to ensure my current setup is reinstated without too many gray hairs? Any suggestions welcome. Thanks in advance!
