From previous Android 4.3 builds at around 99mb to 140mb for 4.4... What's the extra that is included?

So for anyone trying this, here's my results after a little trial & error

Latest twrp didn't flash, aborted installation, error 7, etc..... In the n4/mako threads the majority of users were having this issue (worked fine for me). twrp for mako has been updated, but still waiting on a manta update

In the meantime i went over to cwm recovery thread. Haven't used that in ages and it seems there may be issues with some of their updates in general. There are flashables available for the last several versions. Here's the one that worked for me:

Clockwork_MOD-6.0.3.8-Touch-manta.zip

edit: just now signing in, everything booted well....happy flashing!

I can confirm Slim 4.4 didn't flash in TWRP. Just finished trying to flash a few minutes ago. I like TWRP better, so will wait until the issues can be sorted. Thanks damngood!
