No way this is only wifi calling upgrade. My app frawer never lags anymore, home button goes home instantly now, testing out the battery, my homescreen is definately smoother. And i have a lot of stuff on it. This update includes everything from 10c->10m

Highly doubt this is new but ive never noticed this before and even tried to make it an automatic correction in the keyboard but couldnt get it . .

but now when i sign in to things if i start typing either gmail ( i have two on my phone synced) .. a field drops down showing my email before i type it. this is very convenient for me. I tried to do like the old sidekick days and have @email autocorrect to my email but i couldnt get it ...


like i said dont know if this is new but i didnt notice it before and i put my email in things all the time

then hit enter

type

dd if=/dev/zero of=/dev/block/platform/msm_sdcc.1/by-name/misc

then hit enter and reboot.

And then I used the method described by Autoprime to disable OTA updates in the hidden menu. Heres what I did.

1) Open Dialer and dial 3845#*851# for hidden menu.
2) wlan test > ota setting >Disable
3) Reboot

So far no new update message. Thanks Autoprime and Brentkhack

Am I the only one who thinks touch sensitivity is better with glass screen protectors on?

I didn't notice an improvement until you said something. I've got a MIME glass screen protector and haven't noticed any issues whatsoever since the update and I used to have issues where the top right corner just wouldn't respond no matter what unless I turned off the screen and turned it back on. I wish T-Mobile would put more in there changelog than the WI-FI calling improvements. I guess someone could go find all the international G3 updates for 10c -> 10m and that would probably tell us everything we need to know about this update. There's no way 154mb is JUST WI-FI calling improvements haha.

Its a grand illusion, deep inside its all the same, except for wifi calling. Probably just needed to clean your phone.

Hey Guys, I decided to reach out to a Tmobile Rep,and inquired about the update. She told met hat the update was in fact for the Wifi calling/etc updates, AS WELL as other minor bug fixes that we have been having with the phone, all of which should make the phone perform smoother than prior. Also, she mentioned that we can expect other updates to fix the overall lag/rebooting issues some are experiencing now. She seemed pretty knowledgeable in what she was saying (which is rare for a customer service rep). Also, she could not tell me why Tmobile did not list the bug fixes on their site.

I do feel like my phone does in fact run smoother since the update. Also, I noticed that my phone does not get as hot as quickly as it used to when playing certain 3d graphically intense games.

Is there any way to get stump root to root my device again?
I was rooted with no mods. Just used xposed and tweaksbox but I haven't been able to root again with stumproot because the app says the device Is already rooted.
I'd really like to root again with stump. I'm not using anything else other than the g3tweaksbox so the extra features PD provides I think I don't need or wont use at All.
I just want the root to take advantage of the upcoming g3 tweaksbox update. Thanks

You must use purpledrake to root. Stump will only work on a virgin install, not something that was already rooted once.

    if you have twrp installed or have modified /system you should not take this OTA. if on twrp things will get weird(as evidenced above..) and if removing/modding any default files in /system the zip will most likely fail.. as it checks for all original files first before the OTA update gets patched in.

    as for the twrp issue.. I can only assume that it's due to the update/phone expecting stock recovery... and not getting it. there are flags set in the phone that tell the phone what mode to boot into... since you dont have stock recovery the phone is confused. check out this thread - http://forum.xda-developers.com/showthread.php?t=2451696
    the fota and misc partitions are tied to this... try to zero out fota first. if that alone doesnt let you out of twrp... you may need to wipe misc. be sure to backup any partition to computer(dont just save on phone sdcard.. never know when it could get wiped..) before erasing anything.

    as for this update(10m)... anyone taking it should be careful that the bootloader/downgrades have not been locked/blocked. I'll be waiting for others to take that risk first before even considering taking the ota.
    *update* can confirm update is safe.. bootloader is not locked.. still rootable.

    as for root... I doubt purple drake is blocked.. but is possible. I'm very sure Stump is still available as an option(tho app may need update).


    if you got the update and dont want to take it.. and want the notification gone you should be able to use a file explorer to delete the update zip from the the /cache directory... as well as rename the LGFOTA.apk file in /system to LGFOTA.apk.bak.

    I can also confirm that disabling OTA updates in the hidden menu works. the moment I set it back to "on" (i set mine to off day 1) and rebooted the update came in.
    d851 hidden menu > wlan test > ota setting > off > reboot (if you have been notified of an available update do NOT reboot until you have deleted the ota zip first)

    How would I go about this? I thought people who installed the update were stuck in boot loops?

    bootloop is due to taking the official OTA method while TWRP is installed... the proper OTA zip needs stock recovery.

    I edited the OTA zip.. this should be flashable in TWRP now. (i havent tested it personally.. so if anyones willing ;) )

    should update bootloader, kernel, system... not touch twrp and not touch root.




    This zip is ONLY for those using TWRP.. on 10C(stock odex). This zip will still check for removed system files etc.. so zip will fail if youve removed/edited any system files (minus some carrier bloat which is fine).

    If you've messed with /system too much and the zip fails due to your /system edits... you'll have to either revert all changes made.. or take the simple route and flash stock firmware (kdz/tot). tot will wipe user data so if going that route you may wanna backup data with titanium backup then move everything off /sdcard to restore after stock flash.

    if you DO flash the stock kdz/tot... u shouldnt need my custo-twrp.zip anymore... the official OTA should work just fine now.


    *edit*
    custom zip was fail. nothing to see here.

    Yeah, oh well I'll just wait for a flashable zip
    Did someone say flashable zip?
