Default [Q] LG G2 KitKat Root question

I tried searching the dev post and could not find the answer to my question.

http://forum.xda-developers.com/show...php?p=48709232

Anyway I have a Verizon G2 that is Rooted. I got a ota notification today wanting to update to Kitkat. I told it no because I figured it would not end well.

Do I let it install the update then just root again using IOroot25?

When I first rooted, it did not wipe my phone which was pretty sweet. And I do not quite understand what the Dev wrote about the EFS being backed up or not.

If I root using IOroot25 will it wipe my devise?

Thanks for the help

If no one knows, could someone repost my question in the dev forum for me please?

Also I have Titanium back up. can i just back up everything that way and restore if IOroot25 wipes everything?

Thanks!

So I tried to do a system OTS update and it failed like I though it would.

I tried to use iroot25 to see if it would work. The script completed fine, but I am still not at 4.4

I need to figure out how to update to 4.4 now.
