Default T-Mobile LG G2 OTA update contains knock-code and Google wallet Tap2Pay

Stock rom version 80120E is the latest one. Everybody should get it if possible. In addition to the above updates the lockscreen displays full screen album art from Google play music app. I've experienced far less frequent playback errors also.

I second this. Just received the update today but I'm hesitant to install it. I still have stock recovery but I am rooted. Don't want to mess anything up. So if anyone who's rooted installed the update without problems let me know!

I'm rooted but I have custom recovery on mine (TWRP) and it was Hell... HELL! It took me 7 hours throughout the whole night to recover it, it was going back to TWRP every single time. But searching here in this fine website paid off! I'm not going to touch any OTA until I know more on how to prevent that again.

I had a similar experience when I upgraded to KitKat. Lost so much including pictures and videos that couldn't be replaced or recovered. Took hours just to get my phone working again. Never want to go through that again!

Please look at the T-Mobile specific forum: http://forum.xda-developers.com/tmobile-g2

Read here after message 545: http://forum.xda-developers.com/show...664028&page=55

I was rooted and had TWRP. I upgraded using the LG service tool and had no issues. I lost root and recovery but was able to re-root using towelroot.

I was rooted and installed the uodate. I lost root and so far no chance of direct rooting. Good thing is that now we can choose runtime option, either dalvik or art.

Cool Confirmed, it worked for me as well, through the LG Support tool. Never taking it OTA ever again. And yes, I lost root as well and I've used towelroot before. I'm not sure if I'll install a custom recovery any time soon. Nearly bricked my LG G2 enough times already.

Have you tried using towelroot? From what I read it seems to work fine. I hope it does at least. I can live without knock code, but not having root would be a problem.
