The OTA update will refuse to install as you are rooted.... get the LG support tool and then run the update from there... it will stilll install despite being rooted....

This just happened to me. Pretty bummed even though I've only had the phone for about a month.

Well if you are using twrp you can try this http://forum.xda-developers.com/show....php?t=2451696 and if not then you need to flash back to stock

Actually you can ota with root as long as you have not modified anything that means no mods, no xposed, no custom recovery and root may or may not survive 50/50

Yeah, I found that same method earlier and it worked for me, but thanks for mentioning it nonetheless
