Default Manually upgrade to Kitkat? (keep root)

How to I manually upgrade to Kitkat? Currently rooted and running IOKP 4.3.1 ROM. I would like to be able to keep root whilst upgrading of possible?

As a side note can anyone recommend any e-book tutorials on android development and having a better understanding on ROMS/kernels etc.

Thanks.

If you want to upgrade to 4.4 or 4.4.2 you need to go back to stock ROM. As long as you have a custom recovery, like TWRP, then after upgrading, you simply flash SuperSU or any other root file you want through the recovery.

Just flash the zip from CWM/TWRP.
