And, I assume titanium or helium would be able to bring back the app data, even though it's across to a different rom? I'm a little rusty on the rom switching, as I used to do it all the time on my nexus, and now I have a new baby, so, I have less time to do everything and I want to be sure the camera is working well before I flash away! Plus my phone has been slowing and I put a new and faster SD card, which is not performing like I expect.... So, I was waiting for the moment to reset anyway!
Thanks ahead for the help!

I am using default cm12 camera app i did not see any difference between KitKat and cm 12 camera app.but i wil suggest that u use google camera app that makes lot difference....yes if u already backup the stock apps then they will work on ur cm 12 rom. as kind of SD card problem i never been through so no idea. good luck

Do any of you guys have instructions on how to update and root from 4.4.2 to Android 6.0 on our devices? Anyone try it? I don't have as much time on my hands as I used to, so I was hoping you guys had a quick answer it would be nice to change up my s5 from Kit Kat!
Thanks for any help guys!

Actually, another question. Using the original cwm from xiaolu via bobopopo, would I be able to flash upgrade to 6.0.1 with cyenogen or others?!
Thanks again guys! Anyone running rooted on 6.0.1? Is it worth upgrading from Kit Kat?

I see there is a 6.0.1 update for our phones, but we would lose root. I've been searching for ways to upgrade while keeping root, but seems impossible. If I were to upgrade, can we still re-root?
Any help would be greatly appreciated!
Thank you guys!

I just upgraded from official 6.0.1 to Lineage OS 14.1 following the instructions of:
https://forum.xda-developers.com/gal...gapps-t2904863
(You may want to check the links on page 5)

Used TWRP 3.0 instead of CWM as well as latest SuperSU, then the Lineage OS.

Good luck!
