Thumbs up
I posted that I got a script-based method to work on my VS985 running Lollipop 24B. I had just bought the phone refurbished and it was running KitKat. It immediately downloaded Lollipop and when it was finished it was at 24B. Not sure what else could cause it to fail for others, but thought you should know about it since you appear to be very knowledgeable on this subject. I just wish there was a hotspot provisioning hack for 24B. I'm sure it will come, but I could really use it if you know who does those.

I'll have to wait until the next update to test OTA survival mode, but I read somewhere that LG devices won't do them if they've been "Modified".

Thanks for all you do!

Plus SuperSU doesn't appear to have an OTA survival mode under official LG Lollipop.

That's correct, you most definitely won't be able to even take an OTA once your status is Modified. Even if you unroot your system partition will be recognized as having previously been modified, and the OTA will fail at best, and at worst you'll be soft bricked and have to delete the OTA files or just flash a stock KDZ.

Well, I suspect the G3 at Lollipop 24B may not get any more OTA updates anyway. And I don't care much either since I like this version and it seems very stable. Even if one does come out, I know the update will eventually be available for manual installation.

Thanks again,
Bruce

As a result of your cleverness I can hereby claim that the hotspot provisioning hack for L3 G3 VS985 Lollipop 23B works fine on 24B.

Cheers my friend! And thanks again!
