The Joy of Installing CyanogenMod 10.2.1

So I’ve been on CM10.1.3 on my Nexus 4 for a while now, and I love it. But I fancied a change, and what better change than seeing what Android 4.3 has to offer? Of course, I need all my customisations and tweaks only possible with root + CM rather than stock. So, after doing a NANDroid and moving that to my PC, off I went to NRT to flash stock + unroot as it’s a sure-fire way to completely wipe the device and give a clean slate for a fresh install of 10.2.1.

Then I’ll finally be on Android 4.3! Yay! Might treat myself to that LG smartwatch that runs Android Wear in a few months, instead of a Pebble.
