Default [Q] Should I update my L90?

There is a 150mb update available, should i download it? Or will that make rooting harder?

If you plan on unlocking the bootloader, you shouldn't update. LG has a reputation of permanently locking the bootloader with their updates.

On the topic of the update - does anyone know what exactly changed with it? Probably the only thing I noticed was that you can now choose between Dalvik and ART. But that's about it. Anything else?
Currently using: LG L90 D405N. Stock. Not rooted.

I'm going to hold off on updating. I remember that I updated my L9 as soon as I got it and I never was able to unlock the bootloader. I'm doing it differently this time....just in case.

Not sure about the D405, but on the D415 after enabling developer options we can switch between ART or Dalvik. I haven't updated or looked for an update for my D415.

EDIT: Just checked for an update for the TMobile D415. There isn't one.

That may not always be the case. LG is well known for purposely screwing things up for folks.
