Hi, so I rooted my phone a while back and unrooted it right away. I tried to update it but it says it's rooted. I've checked using apps if it was rooted and it said it wasn't. I've tried using the Restore Error via PC Suite but still won't update. Please please please help me!

Keeps saying software update unavailable as well.

Have you tried using the TOT file and LG Flash Tool? That should get you to where you can update.

How do I do that? I've tried updating via Windows PC Suite but still won't work. Whenever I try to restore it, it says there's something wrong. Whenever I flash it, it isn't recognized or it doesn't work. Any suggestions?

You need to flash back to stock because if you check your RCT on the hidden menu it will probably say rooted. There is a way to remove the files via adb from what another memeber had posted a while ago but I would just backup my phone and flash back via KDZ or tot and dll method. If you have windows 8 be sure to disable signature verification at boot for it to work
