I have the D855 international, with v10f. It's rooted with PurpleDrake Lite. The phone has just downloaded a software update, which I have NOT installed. Can I install it? If I do install it:
- will I need to root again?
- will anything else be affected?

If you run the software update it will either work (and root will be maintained) or it will fail with a message that your phone is suspected of being rooted and boot back up unchanged. If it fails then you need to unroot first by flashing a KDZ of the version you are using in Normal Flash mode to retain your data/apps

It worked. Root maintained. Software version v10j.

Like the guy said a couple posts up.... Flash KDZ of whatever firmware you're currently on in Normal Mode.

Then try again[emoji16]

You can try this method first to lose root and update your device:

http://forum.xda-developers.com/show....php?t=2797190

If not, you can also follow this guide to flash your current .kdz file again and lose root like that.

http://forum.xda-developers.com/show....php?t=2802286

If you want to find your current .kdz file, you can use this link:
http://csmg.lgmobile.com:9002/csmg/b...2.jsp?esn=IMEI HERE

You have to put in your IMEI after the "=". That will take you to a page with some info. Use the link next to "<sw_url>", copy it and that will start the download of your latest rom (in form of a .kdz file).

(Not sure if I pasted the links in the correct order, but the first one should be regarding the use of LG PC Suite and the second one about flashing .kdz files)
