Hello!
I was going to install a firmware for this phone (p712) with KDZ from this web.
I'm from Argentina, but I was just wondering what are the differences between the v10C and v10D.
I know the v10C comes with the knock application, but what about the v10D?

I got my phone with the v10B early this year, but I couldn't update with FOTA because it is rooted.
Thanks in advance.

It tells me that the update couldn't be done because it found that it's rooted. Maybe it's my phone company that wont let me update.


I rooted it with framrooth 1.9.1.

Yup, unroot before update.

I remember seeing a post here saying that even after unrooting, the update process noticed the rooting tracks so it didn't perform the update.
Maybe you'd better install CWM before unrooting.

Root, install CWM and find wonderful rom for your device.

George, you probably don't know this device. It doesn't have any custom ROM yet. Hence the OP's question.

I have already tried unroot and try to update, but doesn't work.
The CWM for this phone is very buggy and can cause soft brick sometimes.
There is no custom roms, only some mods or full KDZ update.

Seems that you are talking about a different phone, and new LGs can only update by FOTA (or kdz of course).

So don't update until you clean all of the root trace. For now, I think it doesn't have much different whether you update or not.
In case you are having problem with your device and want to do KDZ update with firmware stock, you can download here.
I know that your LG Optimus L7 II is newer than mine.
Just keep in touch with this site or you could search anywhere else so that you'd be able to update your device by FOTA.
GOOD LUCK.
