HI everyone!

I just recently installed V20a lollipop on my phone via LG OTA update, rooted it using 1 click root and installed bootloader using the method found on the MLKernel thread (run batch file > installs chinese recovery > install app to install english philz).

I was wondering, can I flash another kind of 5.0 based ROM on top of what I have now? (rooted stock w/ recovery and custom kernel) or do I have to go through several hoops like bootloader unlock? I know for sure the Optimus G requires an unlocked bootloader (my phone before this).

I was planning on flashing a 5.0 ROM i found on a random site that's built like stock android (i love stock), but I'm not sure if there are any more pre-requisites before flashing.

ADDED:

Here's the link to the site i found: http://www.unlock-bootloader.info/mp...ro-2-6052.html

If it makes any difference, my device is the international D838 16gb version.

Can anyone point me in the right direction? thanks

I do not think its a genuine ROM. Following is the give away:-

In tutorial it says:-

1. Install the ROM Manager on your LG G Pro 2 . Get it from Google Play Store, then install the clockwork mod recovery. You also can use ROM Installer application from JRummy Apps Inc.(Get it from Google Play Store).

ROM Manager is not compatible with GPRO2. You cannot install recovery like that on GPro 2

2. There is no AOSP/AOKP/CM/Google Stock (screenshots are for some CM type ROM) available for our device.

3. The link Tutorial Video : Easy Way To Download ROM mentioned on the page is a video for some survey filling tutorial.

Honestly I did not have the guts to check the download links.

Regards,
Cyrus
