I'm on 4.2.2 with TWRP right now but just about to update OTA. I'll give this a try once on 4.4.2 and post my results.
Don't ota with twrp or you will bootloop

Thanks XxZombiePikachu. I didn't know the bootloop issue last week and was able to get back and running to my TWRP 2.6.3.4 and 4.2.2.

I just finished upgrading OTA using the LG Mobile Support Tool which was super easy. Once updated I didn't have root access. However, I tried the IOroot25 which now supports D803 and it worked! http://forum.xda-developers.com/show...&postcount=869 I have root access back.

EXCEPT when following the instructions, my phone was wiped clean as if right out of the box with KitKat 4.4.2. Luckily I backed everything up using Titanium so I'm in the process of restoring all my apps BUT I now have KitKat 4.4.2 with root access.
