Hi guys! I've just updated to the latest software version "F400k10l" but I can't find root. I get an error message "Whole signature not verified".

Any ideas?

BTW.. I'm using the root tool from

Hey there!!! Thanks for your reply

I had to flash back to stock and then update after stock was installed. The reason I had to flash back to stock was because the LG PC Suite was saying that I'm running the latest version but my phone had an update waiting..LOL !!

Long process... Updated to the latest Korean version but I can't seem to root after the update I don't feel comfortable using towelroot again cos it messed up my phone somehow

I am on F400K10l ( Korean variant ), the compatibility matrix https://docs.google.com/spreadsheets...it?pli=1#gid=0

http://forum.xda-developers.com/showpost.php?p=54254109

shows that only 10A and 10B but I'll try it this evening nonetheless

EDIT : PurpleDrake doesn't root either. I had to downgrade to F400K10g and rooted with the root tool.
