Instructions:

A clean install is highly recommended when coming from v4.x to "L"
DOES NOT wipe your SD card.

via flashable file:

- Boot into recovery (TWRP/CWM)
- Un-mount /system in TWRP/CWM
- Wipe: system, data, dalvik and cache
- Flash ROM (be patient - takes a while)
- Flash SuperSU (optional)
- Flash radio (optional)
- Reboot (first boot takes a while)

MultiROM users can follow this method.

via fastboot (manual installation):

SYSTEM PREP (skip if you already have fastboot/adb setup):

Let's setup ADB and fastboot

Windows:

- Automated: http://forum.xda-developers.com/showthread.php?t=2588979 (follow the steps in the software)

- Manual Method:

Download this file and extract the folder called "adb" to your C: drive. Your path should look like this:

Code:
C:\adb\

You will need to open a command prompt window using this method:

Code:
- Go to the C:\adb\ folder 
- hold down SHIFT key and RIGHT-CLICK 
- select "Open command window here".

In order to use ADB & Fastboot from anywhere - use the following steps to setup windows environment variables:

Navigate to & click on Start > Right-Click on Computer > click on Advance System Settings >
Click on Environment Variables (under the advanced tab) > Click on New (User Variables) >
Variables Name: ADB (Or anything you want) Variables Value: ;C:\adb (this is the Path of my adb.exe file)

Mac & Linux:

Install ADB & fastboot using: this file

1. Extract the downloaded zip to your desktop
2. Open Terminal and type in:

Code:
su
cd Desktop/Android/ (note: Android is the directory extracted from zip file)

3. Now type

Code:
./ADB-Install-Mac.sh

Note: By using the method above, your adb and fastboot files are stored at this location on your Mac: /usr/bin/

----
Now that you're setup, let's do the flashing:

Boot into TWRP to wipe cache, dalvik, data (not internal storage/SD) and system.

Reboot to bootloader and flash the following:

  • fastboot flash bootloader <insert bootloader img name>
  • fastboot reboot-bootloader
  • fastboot flash radio <insert radio img name>
  • fastboot reboot-bootloader
  • fastboot flash system system.img
  • fastboot flash boot boot.img // OR // fastboot flash boot <insert name of unecrypt boot.img>
  • fastboot flash cache cache.img
  • fastboot reboot

After you finish the above - reboot in to recovery (TWRP/CWM) and factory reset - then reboot

FAQ

Check out this comprehensive HELP INDEX which will help answer your questions.

Got "No SDCard" error?
This is because 4.4.x seems to point to: storage/emulated/0 & L points to: data/media/0

Solution:

- Mount system in TWRP/CWM
- Wipe system, dalvik, data, cache
- Unmount system
- Install ROM
- Factory reset
- Reboot
- Go back to recovery & flash SuperSU (link above).
- Reboot

Still not resolved? try:

Open terminal and type
su
restorecon -FR /data/media/0

or type

su
restorecon -r /data/media/0/*

Still not resolved? back everything up and flash the userdata.img (erases your SD card)

Does Titanium Backup work?
Titanium backup and other similar apps do not work 100% on L... as expected.

How do I restore my user apps?
You can restore your apps using this method:

- While on a 4.4.x rom, go into TB > batch actions > recovery > 'create update.zip...' > select user apps
- Install L > flash the update.zip
- Done!

I get a "failed" error when flashing ROM
You did not unmount system or it got re-mounted automatically. Reboot your recovery > unmount system > flash ROM

SMS/MMS not working?
SMS & MMS is related to your APN and not the ROM. Check that.

Can I flash this over my 4.4.x rom?
Yes, but do a clean install

OMG x app is not working?
That's expected - a lot of apps need to be updated to be compatible with L

OMG xPosed is not working?
No, it's not compatible with ART which is the default runtime on L

Can I flash a custom kernel?
Yes, thanks to @eng.stk
