Anyway, the phone works fine, no problem after rooting. But today I should recive a software update. Is the software update affected by root or root by the software update? If yes, I should unroot to make the update?
And there are two major bugs on the L7: sometimes the downloaded apps are showed twice; I mean, I use folders and downloaded apps are in folders and out of them at the same time. I'm the only one who have this issue? And second: my battery percentage is not really accurate: I have the stock 2460 mAH battery and it should be more durable(I charge it to 100%, but in 5 minutes is at 81% - I solve it by overcharging about 30-60 mins).
Is there any way to fix this if the update won't?
Thanks a lot, sorry because I'm a big noob, but I hope I will learn, that's why I joined xda-developers today.
I read somewhere here that LG SW updates don't like rooted devices, and that once you attempt to perform the update on a rooted phone, the update fails and then keeps displaying an annoying message. Unrooting is an option, but bear in mind that it doesn't always return the phone to its original state, and the update process may well notice the rooting tracks and behave the same way described above. In addition, even if you managed to root your phone in the previous version, no one promises that it should succeed again after update (I keep reading complaints here about how delicate the the rooting process is). My point here is that you need to consider whether you really need this update.
Don't know anything about the double showing of apps. Regarding battery state: I always use the GSAM battery monitor app for this purpose - great app that can shed some light about the status of your battery (including what makes it drain).
