  2. If the firmware are official then why can't upgrade via On The Air (OTA) / automatic updates of device? not yet, because even though official however allocated for regional Malaysia, while Indonesia or other countries untill the author post this article currently there is no clarity when it will be given, only the sweet promises from the LG. CAUTION: now you can upgrade to Lollipoop via On The Air (OTA).
  3. Is the manual upgrade as way below will shorten the life of our device ? Nope, there is no relation.
  4. Is the manual upgrade as this will void the warranty ? of course, but do not worry just flash again to Kitkat then it will go back again to a virgin state.

  3. If we use the Antutu Benchmark then what is the score? If the Kitkat ranging from 17,000 to 18,000 so if Lollipop minimal ranging from 19370-20447.

My GPS is not working after I update to Android Lollipop! Is it only with me or it's happening with someone else? What can I do?

Thanks!

Yeup, GPS not working properly and there is no solution yet.

I was with the Kingroot (the link is on the own post), then I flashed the rom again and it's not working anymore. Funny.
I got root with iRoot too, but even the own iRoot apps couldn't got root permissions, which means it couldn't gave permissions to any other app too.
I guess that even if you get, you won't be able to update the su binaries easily, so you will have to get used with the Chinese apps.

Gps is working fine to me either, seems even faster than before.

iroot worked fine after the 3rd try :D
the only thing remaining is the custom recovery to install xposed :)
