[Q]Newbie to G2, verifying that I have what I need to start out.
Hi everyone. I'm coming over from Sammyville to the land of LG, on AT&T. From the reading I've been doing on these boards, I've decided that I'm going to root the phones right out of the gate, if only so that I can use the Xposed Framework (although I assume a custom ROM will be in the cards once I get sick of all the bloatware). I just want to ensure that I've managed to piece together the process so far.
1. Accept no OTA update
2. Install LG Drivers (non-verizon version)
3. Run IORoot, using steps here
4. Download and run Freegee app to bypass bootloader & install TWRP
5. Backup the EFS partition and save it somewhere, in case I bork everything afterwards
6. Don't accept any OTA
Is that the basic idea of the path of least resistance? As I understood it, accepting the OTA updates complicates installing a custom ROM later on?

Thanks to all the devs, themers, and mods for keeping the addiction alive *twitch*
