I have a problem, today my gf saw an update so she tried to install it even my device is rooted.
Now it reboots to TWRP recovery every time I turn device on.

I know I can restore device using LG mobile support tool, but I want to ask, if there is any way for me to install new ota without wiping my data..

Thanks for help

this worked for me:
Using TWRP’s "terminal command" option to run this:

dd if=/dev/zero of=/dev/block/platform/msm_sdcc.1/by-name/fota

you can close thread
