A dummy question,


Is it safe to flash latest Gapps (from here http://forum.xda-developers.com/goog...gapps-t2012857) on rooted stock D855 ?

Or will I brick it ?

I also wish to do this. Get my G3 later! I thought after rooting stock and flashing this Gapps it'd remove LG's bloat ware and annoyances, etc. No/yes?

No. GAPPS contain bits like the playstore, camera libs, etc. GAPPS do not include anything essential to the phones use such as the dialer. It will not upgrade your version of android nor will it remove any LG bloat. Bad idea to flash GAPPS on a stock LG rom.

What I meant is to upgrade gapps to version 4.4.4, not android to 4.4.4.

1st of all we do not have a working recovery for flashing. secondly there is a reason your 4.4.2 phone doesn't get 4.4.4 google apps via the play store, if google changed the slightest thing in the 4.4.4 google apps framework you will be the proud owner of the all new bricked lg g3


so don't do it and wait for cm11 or lg
