Default Restoring To Stock Question

Hello all, new to the LG phones and had a question about the restore process. I went thru the process in the development section without having the phone rooted or having a custom recovery installed. I have had success with restoring the stock firmware. My questions are as follows:

1) If I root with the 2 current methods available will I be able to restore the phone back to stock with restore process?

2) If I install a custom recovery will I be able be able to restore the phone back to stock with restore process?

3) Will the restore if successful reset the tamper counter?


Thanks in advance for your reply's

What I'm talking about is resorting the phone back to stock from this post. http://forum.xda-developers.com/show....php?t=2799647

[ALL Variants] Update / Restore to Stock your LG G3

I want to know if we can restore back to stock with the above method after rooting and eventually having CWM or TWRP on the phone.

Thanks for clarifying. Ok, flashing a .kdz file is like reinstalling the whole stock ROM again, so yes, you should go back completely to stock, including recovery and you will also lose root. You could also try another guide that's called something like "Unroot using PC suite" that doesn't involve flashing a file or you could also look for the thread that's called "LG Flashtool 2014 easiest way to go back to stock", something like that. That method seems to be easier but still involves a .kdz file.

Thanks for your reply, I kind of thought the same thing, but was not sure as I'm new to LG phones and rooting/restoring them. Like the phone very much, cant wait for a recovery and unlocked boot loader.

You're welcome I'm actually new to LG too, but did some extensive reading so that I could be prepared in case something went wrong haha.

Yeah, me neither !
