I got this update a few days ago on my rooted Tmobile G2. Applying the update bricked my phone, as it was stuck in a recovery boot loop. Had to use this:

to get it unstuck. Also, I tried the LG Support Tool to pull the update, but it was trying to download a 1.7gig update. I cancelled it before the install process in the fear that it would bork my phone.

Has anyone gotten the update to install successfully on their phone? (rooted)

I got the update but didn't run it. I learned my lesson last time. I'd love to know what it brings and how to install it though.

I'm there but can't figure out how to type in terminal command, can you help me out with this? I'm stuck in the recovery boot loop.

*EDIT* nevermind I figured it out after a factory reset though UGH!

I also got the update notification. I deleted 213MB upgrade file in cashe. It was in the root of cashe folder not in /cashe/foa/. I still get the stupid upgrade notification. How can we kill it? I have Titanium backup but software MUC is not an option on our phones.

OK found how to turn it off. Long press the update, App Info pops up, uncheck show notifications. Clear cashe and then reboot.

You can use stomproot (brute force method) to root this OTA. towelroot won't work. Before applying OTA, make sure custom recovery is replaced with stock recovery. Otherwise you will end up in boot loop.

If I have not installed a custom recovery, but just rooted the phone with AutoRec, will it soft brick my phone? Since I don't have TWRP or CWM, I would have no way to enter adb shell. So, it sounds like if I soft brick it, I'd have to restore factory settings to get it to boot, right? Are there any significant improvements to the 20g versus the 20e? Thanks.

I ended up going with the LG support tool method and installed the update (1.7gigs)...not really sure what the changed though. Root was lost, but I used Stump Root to get it back and everything is normal again. If anyone has the list of changes, plz post
