Default Still on MI1 wanting to update

I'm still on 4.2.2, I want to take the update. I tried when 4.3 update was pushed but got a "feature" error and it stopped. I'm planning to put the replacement files then update. Are there confirmed root methods and will allow me to keep my user files/settings? Is there a bootstrap ROM/Backup and Restore for this latest, at least the 4.3 first update not including latest?

Thanks

if you have uninstalled any of the stock bloatware apps that come with the phone you would need to download and flash the no wipe ODIN file then upgrade. (or install the individual apk's as system apps) there is a safe root for both the MJ7 and MK2 versions. lastly as of now there is currently no way of flashing ROMS yet as the bootloader is still locked and Safestrap is not yet compatible. Hope that answered all your questions
