    I appears you will loose root. At least using the method linked above to get to 4.4.4 will make you loose root.
    Yes, and I state that in my post. There is no root for 4.4.4. It's still currently in soak. There won't be a root method for it any time soon.

    Sorry, I was supposed to be "replying with quote" to the person that was asking if you would loose root.

    Ah, ok. Yea you will lose root. I'm betting you will with the OTA, as well. Getting root is going to be a nightmare as you have 3 challenges....

    1. Finding a new priv escalation vulnerability. The pie exploit is patched.
    2. Finding someone who can exploit a new vulnerability if you find one.
    3. Finding a write protect off exploit so you can persist root.

    Those are not impossible challenges, but, if anyone's thinking they're going to get root in a "few days" or possibly even "a few weeks" prepare to be massively disappointed.

    VZW already signed off on it. It's going OTA which is why they want you to finish the soak asap.
    I was done with the soak basically 10 seconds in, lol. The minor stuff I mentioned in here, even if it's a bug, does not bother me one bit to say OMG FIX THIS! They fixed the home button bug that HAD been bugging me to death. That makes me happy.

    There's a few bugs I've seen from others but nothing show stopping. It's possible they'll do a new 4.4.4 minor build like they've done for 4.4.2 on the HD recently to fix the issues that are found before L comes.

    I never noticed a home button bug.

    In the 4.4 update, if you launched an app from any other home screen other than the default screen, when you press home the phone acts as if you pressed the key twice - it went back to the home screen and then went back to the default. If you used a third party launcher like aviate, which toggles a panel on and off when you press home, it would toggle on and then off when you pressed home once. It is slightly annoying, and the major reason I switched to Nova launcher, because you could tell the launcher to not do anything when you pressed home (and an update a few weeks ago deliberately ignored the second press on the 2013 Droids.)

    Yes, share bug is finally fixed - you can finally choose which app to share again.

    Camera seems the same in the default mode, but I think there's improvement in HDR. (Though I never thought the camera was that bad in the first place, so your milage may vary.)

    Camera seems better to me. Especially the front facing one. A lot less noise in the front camera pictures.

    You had to go there, huh? LOL.

    Many people didn't see that as a bug, but those who did were quite passionate, and vocal about it.

    Never seen that.

    Guess I'd have to not download the updates and sideboard them every time they come out.

    😐 nah... ☺

    Yea, the soak ended last night. It's being pushed out as of today in the usual staggered (non-geographical!!) rollout. If you're waiting for the OTA it'll come in the next few days.

    So I'd even loose root with the unlocked bootloader Chinese method.

    If you're unlocked, you'd just install custom recovery after flashing the FXZ with my rsd Flasher (using keep data) and then flash supersu zip to regain root. It's the locked users who would be screwed.
