cumulative Update Instructions

I have not been able to find simple steps to apply CU on SharePoint 2013.

Could someone please provide me either a link to simple update instructions or steps necessary to apply the CU?

Download appropriate CU

Install CU on each SharePoint server in the farm

Run the Config Wizard (or psconfig) on each server in the farm

That's the basics.

This is where I get confused....

Don't we need to stop the following service before the install?  

SPSearchHostController
OSearch15
SPTimerV4

It helps. See this script which will help you with this:

I also built a PowerShell cmdlet based solution, based off of Russ' script:

HI,In share point 2013 the CU will take more time to install.If we stopped the services mentioned before the patch then the patch will get complete a bit faster.Please check the script as mentioned by Trev,We used the same script and it works like charm.You don't need to do any changes in the script.its Just the Script and the CU binaries will be in same location.If you want to do it Manually,

Please check the link that provided to install the CU in a very detailed with screenshots as an example.
