Yeah anyone that's going to be modding phones should get used to not accepting ota updates, luckily it doesn't take long until roms are updated

Lol I imagine that depends on the rom developer, if not than a rom will eventual get released with the newest software, always a matter of time

So if I'm rooted and on the stock ROM I just accept the OTA and install? Then just re-root?

Yes, assuming you have stock recovery and not TWRP.

Thanks!


Yup on stock recovery right now . Gonna hold off tho because I've been reading that someone is making an update we can flash over top with TWRP. I'll just figure out what I want to do once everything is clear and settled. I'd love some better/stronger signal.

Default Good Info

Thanks for the post. I myself was applying the software downloads for my D800 At&t Variant. I am currently stuck right now and your explanation helps make a little sense of what is happening to my phone. I was stuck at the cm boot animation and tried to do a wipe and restore and a bunch of other stuff and nothing was working. Decided to flash back using the software from that thread, however the flash was listed as successful, but upon getting to the main screen of the os, keyboard doesn't come up, no signal or wifi, then after a minute or two the phone will just reboot. My thoughts are either that I have the OTA software missing key components from the original stock, or my efs is shot, in which case I am concerned. Just got this phone and would love to fix it. I will hunt for original software.

I had done a full lg stock backup through CWM and then exported that to my computer. Would that contain my efs info?

Thanks
