[SOLVED] Thoughts about going from rooted 4.2.2 to 4.3 OTA?
I have an AT&T LG G2. On my previous phone, after I accepted the OTA for 4.1.x to 4.3 on a Galaxy S3, it was a nightmare. I couldn't get su
to run, and I got all kinds of security errors (apparently from KNOX), and not just for superuser. Even though I read several threads about it, I never was sure if it was 4.3 at fault -- which does seem to have some issues per Chaintech -- or if it was Samsung's KNOX, or both. So I certainly want to do my homework before I do that on my new LG.
Which is asking at least these questions:
- Should I bother updating from 4.2.2 to 4.3 on the G2?
(I've read the technical differences, which seem to be incremental. I just want opinions here. For example, things like the new Camera UI may be irrelevant considering LG's customizations already in place with 4.2.2.)
- If it isworth upgrading, will it retain root with an OTA? If it doesn't, what is the best way to go about restoring it in 4.3?
This firmware is probably the first I've ever seen, and that's a lot since first adopting the original T-Mobile G1, where I didn't want to replace the ROM. It's that slick. For now, I just need root and a custom recovery.
