Default No AT&T OTA update if rooted?

Tried to take the ota cause I read that after the update you can just reroot with the io tool. When I tried to take the update it said this device is suspected of rooting or something along those lines and the update failed to download and install. Has this happened to anyone else?

I didn't have this issue. I downloaded the update, but my problem was that I had a custom recovery installed and when my chromecast rebooted my phone, it sent it into a bootloop that wouldn't get out of recovery. I found an article here to fix that, but needless to say that I won't be doing OTA's with custom recovery again.

If you take the update, your recovery will loop. There is a fix for it in the root thread by @thecubed. So, the choice is yours.

I was just rooted on the stock rom. Forgot to mention that. I did however have "survive ota" checked in superuser though, I wonder if that had anything to do with it. I haven't tried it again with that unchecked. The update just isn't important enough to me to justify messing with it, I just took it because I was out of postpone attempts. But now the message is completely gone and not nagging me anymore and everything still works fine root and all.

OTA update from Phone will fail if you are rooted. Either on custom recovery or rooted status. Don't use update from phone, but connect phone to PC and use LG Support Tool. This one doesn't care of root, it will download full 10c update 1.9GB and update your phone. I just did it this way (rooted + TWRP). No problem, no data lost.

But of course, you need to root it again and install custom recovery as well.

You can get it from LG website. Or for example in this thread.

Default Don't do it!

Unless you NEED the ISIS functionality, I STRONGLY urge you to postpone or even disregard D80010o altogether. I don't know what "bug fixes" their release notes talked about as I've not seen one single improvement over D80010d, yet battery drain, battery drain. Once you update you'll notice your battery going downhill and all of a sudden "Android System" takes up about 50% of your battery usage. It's happened to 2 LG G2s I've owned, battery was phenomenal before the update, after the update... like I said. You'll learn to hate "Android System". I'd either wait for 4.3 or KitKat altogether.
