Hi everyone, I'm new to the LG G2, but not the forums, nor rooting. I was wondering how everyone likes there phones and if there's any problems I should know of. I just switched to AT&T, and are you only aloud to switch phones once within the 14 day period?

I'm also new to the phone but not the forum or rooting. I've had my phone for 3 weeks now and I really like it so far. I'm coming from a galaxy s3. I haven't encountered any issues with it whatsoever. I've tried a few custom roms but so far IMO, stock rooted is the best because of smoothness and battery life. The battery life is definitely the most impressive aspect of the phone for me. Battery life easily doubles any other device I have ever owned.

I too have just picked up this phone. Trying to figure out the whole KK and root thing at the moment. But this phone seems to be a beast on battery which is why I went with it. So far I'm liking it well, now if I can just get off of the 4.2.2 and still retain root I'll really love this.

Not to hijack the thread but I just rooted the latest stock KK for our phone (even had the latest 5mb update for gwallet and g+). It was really easy. Just use ioroot25. The latest ioroot now works for KK with no special instructions needed.

If you like the G2 give the Flex a try. I loved the G2 but just happened to stop by a T-Mobile store and played with a Flex. Great phone!

Yeah I'm sure it is but not liking the curve of the phone plus the lower resolution.

Get yourself a case, a good case.
I just dropped the G2 yesterday, my first drop in many years and the entire screen shattered hence touchscreen isn't working at all. Also possibly the usb port got damaged too.
Just let you guys know how fragile this phone is.

Sorry for the late response. I have a job that occupies a lot of my time so I turn notifications off. If you haven't seen it already, there is a thread in this same section that was just created...........

http://forum.xda-developers.com/show....php?t=2722536

It explains the process step by step.

Edit: Actually, I think the guide starts off with you already being on kit Kat. The way I did it was using the tot and dll file for 4.4.2 along with the lg flash tool to bring my phone to stock kit Kat. (My phone didn't want to automatically receive the kit Kat ota and i didn't want to bother calling in and having it "pushed".) Then I accepted the minor update bringing my phone to d80020k (latest software version). Finally, I followed the method above using ioroot25.
