[Q] Confused about how to upgrade to MK4 based ROMs
I've been poking around looking for a Touchwiz based ROM to upgrade to and I'm completely confused and thoroughly bedazzled (comic sans, multiple colors, huge signature graphics, etc).
It seems that MK4 based ROMs are based off of the latest Sprint images, but to upgrade into one of those, you have to revert to a stock less than MK4 ROM, then update to MK4, then upgrade to an MK4 based ROM? Does it matter if you are rooted or not? I got the impression you had to unroot at some point...
What happened to the days of a ROM was self contained? I've seen several ROMS mention that you had to have a certain base ROM already installed to install a different ROM. That sounds needlessly complicated....
I found this ROM I would like to load:
and it seems this is a stock MK4 ROM, but I'm not sure
Why am I stating the obvious? b/c back in the day, The Internets were full of answers. Nowadays, they are full of questions. Please, take the time to do like I am doing here and make sure to "seed" the information back there in an intelligible & detailed manner so that the next guy doesn't have to spend a day & a half researching how to re-engineer the wheel.
