does this also apply to me? I'm currently on .253 firmware, locked bootloader, root, CWM+TWRP dual recovery, navigation bar mod, frooze or deleted some bloatware apps.
Root will be lost I assume and the mod? Will the bloatware be back but everything else like apps, save games, pictures, music, settings be retained? Is there root yet for locked bootloader and .423 4.2.2. firmware?
