How to update to 38r (rooted with franco kernel

    Osei_ak , Oct 7, 2014 :
    I've searched and searched. As the title says, I am using stock CM11s 33r/rooted with franco kernel r23. How do i get the update without bricking my phone and without having to flash the original 33r kernel. I dont care if i loose root, i just dont want to go through the trouble of having to reflash a fresh 33r to update to 38r.
    Please help, be very descriptive. Thank you

    You must fastboot install system system.img
    with 33r

    I've done it

    Flash to stock 33R kernel first (link is somewhere search stock 33R kernel)_.
    then download this modified file
    http://files.newagepcs.com/1 1/cm-bacon-XNPH38R.zip

    Flash the modified file above and wipe cache/dalvik..After flash is done (less than a min).. it should prompt you to install SUPERSU. install it..reboot..wait for cache rebuilt..then open SuperSU and update it..

    Done!

    So this is as good as a clean install?

    Yes. The update fails checksums when you install with alterations to the stock. Those checks have been removed to update despite failed checks. Remember don't flash any custom kernels yet until Franco and AK released 38r customs..otherwise your phone will hang at the boot screen and has to be reflashed from recovery

    Is it true that we can get to 38R manually without having to root or flashing anything else apart from 38R?

    I've seen this in another thread. Either here or XDA. I'll post the link when I find it.
