    Default Issue while manually updating to 4.4

    So, I am following Jerry's guide here.

    I get through step 7 just fine. However, instead of being able to select anything with the VOL UP/DOWN, it simply says "START" and the Android character is laying down, stomach open with "Downloading... Do not turn target off !!" below it. I am unable to select anything with the VOL UP/DOWN, or do anything on this screen (such as Select update from ADB) per Jerry's list).

    Any ideas?

    Did you successfully do step 6 to access Recovery? If so, you should have seen the Android with the red exclamation point. Holding power then quickly pressing volume up should get you the recovery menu. Can you try that at your current stage?

    Ok. I was mistakingly holding the power and the VOL DOWN button and going back into the bootloader.

    However, when I see the Android with the red exclamation, and press power followed quickly by the vol up button, the device simply reboots into the OS, not into recovery.

    I had trouble at that step also. The issue was that I was holding the keys down too long. Just give them a momentary press.
