Default [Q] Upgrading to ZVC From ZVA Rooted

Hello,

I have a G2 Running Stock LS980ZVA Kernel Version 3.4.0. Now I rooted the stock ROM and now got a notification to update the ROM to ZVC.
Now my dilemma is do I "Restart and Install" this update or not. Will this brick my phone?

I have TWRP running as the custom recovery. What should I be doing? I tried to search for a similar thread but couldn't find one.

Any help will be appreciated.

Thank you!

You will brick. Either hold your finger on the notification and then click app data. Click on the show notification. No check mark. Notification will go away.
Regular reboot will not install the update.

If you unroot and put regular recovery back. Then you could.

I have a kind of same problem, I'm from India and my uncle got me sprint lg g2 unlocked, which is rooted and on ZVA (4.2.2).
My question is should I install the OTA for kitkat?
Will i lose my unlock and root ?

I had the OTA downloaded but when i tried installing it, it did not install completely. Phone restarted and is still on 4.2.2 . Everything works as normal though, as I have been prompted 3 times to install the update.

okay, i did some research and found that it is safe to install OTAs but if youre rooted youll lose the root and unlock will still stay.
best imo, is you upgrade to 4.4.2 and root again with custom recovery and install a nice ROM.

Hi - I need similar help.

I have Sprint LG G2 that I purchased from ebay which was rooted and then used sim unlocked as mentioned in xda by the seller. I want to upgrade to kitkat.

please provide steps to backup my data and what needs to be done to upgrade to kitkat without losing the sim unlock.

Thanks
