I have updated a rooted nexus 5 from a flashed 4.4.3 to a downloaded (within the device) 4.4.4. Now SuperSU complains there are no SU binaries. How can I install them without wiping all data on my device? If it helps, the device was first rooted when on 4.4.2. Then I have installed 4.4.3 using fastboot and I was able to preserve all data.
