    Like many, I have held off upgrading to 5Q due to all of the reported issues. I know it's still early, but the 12S feedback seems relatively positive so I am thinking of updating.

    What are the issues (if any) with moving straight from 44 to 12? And if I do not update to 5Q, will I still receive an OTA for 12S?

    Thanks in advance.

    you can directly flash the zip from recovery if you like. Otherwise via OTA you will get 5Q update and then the 12S update.

    Thx @achal1012. I'm not rooted so it sounds like I should go ahead with the 5Q update and then wait for 12S? I am hoping to avoid (or at least minimize) the pain & suffering of 5Q.

    You dont need custom recovery to flash this update. You can use the stock CM recovery which is already there.
    Just get the zip file of update put in your internal storage>> Switch off OPO >> press and hold vol down+ power until it vibrates >> (you should be in recovery now) >> navigate(use volume keys) to " Wipe cache partition" press power button(once) to select it>> then select "apply update" >> then "choose from internal..." >> "0/" >> and find and select your zip
    Enjoy the cm 12S :)

    And just to confirm....

    The 12S download thread says to ..."make sure you are on CM11S 05Q (rooted or stock, both will work)" But you're telling me I can bypass 05Q and go from 44S to 12S? Any risks?

    I updated one friend's opo my self. But if you have doubts just update to 05Q and then go to 12S! We don't want a bricked phone. So its better to be sure and safe than sorry. Update to 05Q and then 12S
