Hey guys, so my buddy has a rooted tmo galaxy s4 currently on Android 4.2. he just got a Galaxy Gear, so he wants to update to Android 4.3. however, he doesn't want to wipe anything (or try not to) in order to upgrade to Android that possible?
I tried Triangle Away and resetted it in an attempt to trick the OTA update, but it's not working...any help is appreciated!

Why not use titanium backup out similar app to backup data?

If on a custom rom /root it may not be possible without boot loops, if on stock /rooted with no mods you can update without wipe.
I flashed from stock /rooted 4.2.2 to 4.4.2 Fenny's stock /rom without wiping with no problems, it is also pre-rooted, just had to delete one super user.
