    No--if anything, people tend to do the reset after the update, to clear out any remnants of the previous version that might be hanging around the system cache.

    I normally do resets when the update is for a major version. If it's minor I don't do it.

    Thanks for the info guys. I'll update then back up and reset. Is 4.4 classed as a major update?

    What B.Diddy said is some good advice. I too have gotten in the habit of hard resetting my devices after major updates if i have any issues.
