So my gf has a G3 d851 white version.

Was gonna do the lp update for her, but of course lg screwed up the mobile tool and it only works on the black version. Unbelievable...

The OTA file is out, but this is the first phone I've used that doesn't seem to have a normal stock recovery?

I can't just flash the 100% stock can I?

Do I have to have a custom recovery? And is root needed to install twrp?

So let's say I do have to root it, and install twrp... After I flash the in twrp will root be lost? And will the stock recovery be put back or would it still be twrp?

Reason I'm asking is, have to keep phone 100% stock. I've always done otas manually, just weird on this phone...

I have a G3 d851 too but I rooted mine and go crazy with roms.

So yeah how the hell do I go about flashing on stock?

1) you definitely need recovery

2) I don't know if you need root, but I'm sure you can find out if you read the stickies.

The OTA is gonna be out in a few days. Just way till then. ☺

I skipped that whole.method and flashed via the kdz. Finished in under 10 minutes. Super easy and didn't have to root or use custom recovery.

I also did the lollipop kdz install and then rooted the phone with the new one click mod. Very fast and easy. Now running very smooth and without any problems
