if i root my D850, and ONLY FREEZE apps with SuperSU, and run Rom Toolbox only for wake lock control, and SD Maid for cleaning. i should be able to still receive OTA updates easily. if my thinking is correct im not actually removing any files and both apps have buttons to easily reverse what i've done.....

Would my thinking be correct?????

Unfortunatly not. As soon as the device is rooted, you can't make OTA updates.

But you can unroot it easily by using PC Suite

oh cool, so if i do what i was thinking then un freeze and reset the wake locks then do this unroot i should be good to go for android L when it comes?

Or would it be better just to wait? i dont see LG being high on the list of fast updated, especially via att

or cant i take the update straight from PC Suite instead and just forget about OTA or will i get the same failure regardless?

either way it sounds like it may be worth it to go ahead and root. as long as i dont go too far like i did on my s4 i think i should be alright. im not really gonna change anything anyway, i just want a bit more control of what does what and when.

thanks guys.
