Hey everyone,
I'm trying to update my phone with the latest T-mobile OTA update (I'm on v20F and I think the update is v20H), but every time I try to install it I get a dead android screen and my phone restarts with no update. I think this is because of the custom recovery that I have installed. How do I remove the custom recovery so that I can install the update? Is there away to update without removing custom recovery (and without losing all of my data)?
I'm using Voodoo root keeper so that I can keep root after the update.
Thanks!

You can't get the update because you have deleted apps from the system.

So I just have to reinstall the bloatware apps and then I'll be able to update?

Yes just re-install the bloatware and that should do the trick.

But i would recommend Kuma's themed Stock ROM for locked bootloaders.
It's using the latest update.

You can't install OTAs if system has been modified, is to say, if you have root access, you won't be able to install the OTA.
A way to install the latest version of the stock Rom is to use the the LG update tool for PC. So, you don't lose your data and system's modifications don't mind.
