How I upgraded my Nexus to Android 4.4.4 without losing root, files (and Xposed Framework)

I just got the OTA for Android 4.4.4 on my Nexus 4. It could have been as easy as installing the update and rebooting my device, but the problem was that my phone was rooted. If I had installed the OTA directly I could have ended up with a boot-loop or have to re-root and installed apps all over again . I’ve had a similar experience in the past.

Xposed Framework for Android

I just love Android. I recently rooted my phone & installed Xposed. Xposed is a framework of modules that install functionalities you would normally get by flashing a ROM. So, for instance you can change the color of the icons in your status bar, or disable the annoying unsafe volume warning, or add a reboot option to the power menu, without flashing a ROM.
