I took an update with root on my F460S. I didn't unroot, and it worked fine.

I just hit update and it worked. I rooted via stumproot (brute force) and it still took the OTA. I don't know why it did without errors, I am using rootcloaker with xposed which may have blocked the OTA from seeing it was rooted.

Ok, I need some help. I've tried this method about 10 times and I can NEVER get the LG software to recognize my phone. I am using the official USB that came with my phone. I am willing to do anything at this point to get my phone working again. I've even looking into Titanium Backup to see if I could "Freeze" the OTA. I'm not really sure what or how to do that so I didn't do anything. Should I just flash a rom?

Please help
