Hello everyone
I have the stock rom and it shows me there is an update. So now i have the rom rooted and i have a unlocked bootloader. Is there a way to update or must i flash the rom with flashtool again.
Thanks for reply.

You have to unroot. Then install the update via ota. Then re root.

It doesn't matter. The easiest way is to connect it to your pc via LG Support Tool which will update your phone regardless of your root/unlocked status.

Voodoo OTA will protect root through the update. Just tested it on both of my parents OGPs.

Ok, but if you have unlocked bootloader will it also protect?
