Also, there seems to one thing left out of the instructions. Don't plug your phone into the USB until after sitting up the file paths in lgflashtool and hitting the arrow to begin the flash. After the message reads ready, then plug in the phone.

Although you initially have to connect the USB to set up the driver before getting to the above step. Its a tricky process and took me a little while to get to work.

What if I am rooted

Would it be a problem to get back root? I actually need to be rooted for some stuff I do at work. I ask because I do not see a big developer presence for this tablet.

I got the OTA but I had forgotten that I still had TWRP installed even though I'm on the stock 4.4.4 rom and not rooted anymore. TWRP interfered with the install and now it says my system is already up to date! Grrr.

Would it work if I just flashed your file via TWRP?

I had a similar situation. It does not work with twrp. I followed this thread to get completely back to stock 4.4.4 and then adb pushed the update file.

Thanks for the quick reply! I suspected that much and I've been trying to find a "back to stock recovery" tutorial for the last hour but failing, so I really appreciate the link. Cheers.

No problem. It was a bit frustrating to get everything to work and not very straight forward process. Would be much easier to just push the stock recovery in fast boot, but I couldn't find a file anywhere. It may be possible to extract it from the tot file from that thread but I couldn't figure it out.

Same here, no stock recovery anywhere. When I first bought the tablet I thought it was gonna have developer support like crazy, but no, it hasn't gained much traction unfortunately.

I'm doing the LG FlashTool thingy, but I don't see any movement in the tool. The tablet is in Download Mode and the tool looks like this: http://gyazo.com/47c9009fc9f90bffa582890d0a8e1587 No feedback whatsoever... is it working? Should I just be patient, do you think?

Check to see under device manager if the driver is set to com41, and the other thing I mentioned previously, get to the point that photo is at without the tablet plugged in, then when it says ready plug it in.

My update finally works!

My Gpe Gpad only has root and Xposed. I uninstalled Xposed and removed root but OTA was still failing with a generic 'ERROR' message. No details. However, when I sideloaded the update, I got the message "system/etc/permissions/platform.xml has unexpected contents". I figured out which app modifies this file. It's called Kitkat SDFix. This Play Store app modifies this file to enable read/write access for external sdcards. The developer makes a backup of the original platform.xml file (in the same location - system/etc/permissions/). So all you need to do is rename the modified platform.xml into anything else and rename the original backup back to platform.xml. You'll need a root explorer to achieve that.

After that the OTA works fine for me. Hope this helps someone else. Not that I had no custom recoveries or kernels so this process is for people who only had root and Xposed.

From this thread mentioned earlier.
Any idea where can I get the factory image?

Same here. Uninstalled LG drivers, cleaned up drivers in device manager (Win 8.1), still stuck. I'm clicking the yellow arrow, then plugging in.

When you plug in the tablet it shows up as LG-something-something in Windows Device Manager. It was showing up as COM4 though, after changing that to COM41 I didn't have problems anymore. Did you do that first? The option is buried under a menu a couple of clicks down but it's there.

Thanks for the tips. I was able to restore to stock with your link and apply the 5.0 update. The port was off on mine, so that tripped me up a bit at first.

    Here is a TWRP (2.7.0.1) Backup of the Android 5.0 System and Boot images, copy into your TWRP backup folders to restore using TWRP. I have not included DATA partitions as it is full of my data. I could not figure out how to backup the Recovery partition unfortunately. The System is clean, no root or modifications.

    http://www.mediafire.com/download/m...0_Backup_72454C64DE83DF816DE91C83BEF2E30E.zip

    I hope this help people having difficultly to upgrade to 5.0, Good luck but please understand I take no responsibility for any issues from flashing this.

    I don't suppose anyone is willing to post a TWRP backup of a clean lollipop install for those of us with custom recoveries/kernels that can't get the OTA?
    It would be much appreciated.
