[Q] Rooted my phone, then KitKat released, wanted to update, failed in the process.

So I have an LG G Flex on 4.2.2. I rooted it a couple days ago, and everything was working perfectly. I got the "can't establish reliable connection" error on my phone, so I went in and put the "#" next to the second IP Address, fixed it. But then I saw the KitKat had finally come to the T-Mobile G Flex, so I wanted to remove the root. I used Kingo Android Root and it went through the unrooting process and failed, I was very confused because my root checker said I didn't have my root anymore. But I started to get the connection error again. I read that I should just restore my phone, it was around 4AM and I was tired so I just decided to do it. So I have nothing on my phone anymore, I thought it would've fixed it. But when I was setting up my Google account again, it said, like before, that it couldn't establish a stable connection. I tried to download ES File Explorer via the Chrome Browser, but it said I already had it on my phone. So I just had to download the .apk from a website. I tried to delete the "#" that I put, save it, then re type it, and see if it worked, but it wouldn't even let me save the file the first time. So now I'm kind of at a loss. Can anyone help me out?

Unroot
Hey...
You must first unroot your flex or flash it to stock.

How did you re-root your T-Mobile LG G Flex?
