I received the 6.0 update tonight. ~788MB download and 20 minute install.

Things I noticed differently:

-Response and fluidity seem better, might be due to it clearing the app cache
-Notification bar is smaller, this is a plus for me
-Messages in the message app are smaller, this is a big plus for me
-Everything LG wise has a more flat material design to it. Looks better than before but still iffy


Will update in the future about the battery usage.

I'm also shocked that VZW released it so early. I'll be waiting for a KDZ so I can upgrade the G3.

I have not done it since I am not on stock but found it while searching around

Rooting a stock ROM, and having a version of SuperSU that will work on it are two different things. That's not a root method unless you:

1. Already have root/TWRP.

2. Have the new ROM as a flashable zip.

If so, then after flashing the ROM then you can flash SuperSU.zip.

This isn't what people are looking for when they're looking for a "root method".

@2kool4u526 can you test the auto brightness on this release? On 35B in a dim room the built-in auto brightness made the screen too dark to be useable, although using Lux Lite from the Play Store rectified that.

Thanks for the info.

I did not. I was rooted versions ago, that was taken away with the 5.1.1 update, but it kept the 'modified' status.

I can look into root for it. The link Bradg24 posted helps. I'll see if I can get recovery on the phone in an easy way.

You'll have to get root before you can attempt to install TWRP. Keep in mind if it screws up your boot with a secure boot error, you might not be able to fix it until they release a KDZ for 46A, if 46A's Download Mode doesn't allow flashing older KDZs, just as 35B's didn't.

Ah, you beat me to it! LOL

:D Too bad it's not like Samsung with being able to flash a custom recovery via USB through Odin on a PC, at least that's how it used to be with Samsung before Knox - now I don't know.

I've tried looking into if it's possible to build our own KDZ but I never got anywhere. Since there are tools to extract them there must be a way of building them, although they might contain some kind of manufacturer signature to confirm they're official when flashing them.

Wi-Fi Calling?

Can anyone confirm/deny if this version has any WiFi calling capabilities? I know Verizon rolled out this capability for the S6 and said they were going to update other Android handsets in 2016.

Long shot, but I figured I would put it out there...

do we even have any devs working on stock verizon ports anymore? i thought holyangel and hasbadr stopped working on this device

Define "anymore". @hsbadr , @HolyAngel and @xdabbeb all released 35B-based ROMs, and the only one of those three who's phone situation changed since then is @HolyAngel 's.

Before the KDZ is available (or rooting a stock build of the OTA at a minimum) it's too early to find out if anyone will release a ROM based on it. Heck, if no one else did by some miracle, I would, based on what I learned from @hsbadr and @xdabbeb.

Only those three devs might know if they would update their ROMs, and we shouldn't ask them. Either they will or they won't depending on if they feel like it.

(I know you weren't asking them so please don't get upset)

Really hoping we can get a Jasmine update for MM, I mean maybe someone can make a poll showing how much demand for one there would be?

    Like I said, if no one else does, I will, and it would be similar to JasmineROM, just stock with the option to debloat.

    Ok, will try tonight when I get off work. When I can hook up to my MAC. (7pm ish)

    You don't need all of the partitions listed. Some you actually wouldn't want to make public. Here's a list of the ones you'd want:

    aboot
    boot
    dbi
    factory
    laf
    modem
    rct
    recovery
    rpm
    sbl1
    tz

    I'm also on OSX, so if you need any help you can find me on hangouts or freenode (xdabbeb)

    Can confirm Root by kingroot. I backed up everything and ran it.

    Also, I already tried the Send_Command trick. It did not work and is still disabled.

    I have a good understanding of adb and can pull the system images for you guys.

    Cheers,
    Kris

    First check your M partitions
    Code:
    adb shell ls -la /dev/block/platform/msm_sdcc.1/by-name/
    You will get a list of partitions.
    Save it.

    How to pull out an partition and make a copy of it to sdcard:
    Code:
    Adb shell
    Su
    dd if=/dev/block/platform/msm_sdcc.1/by-name/name_of_partition of=/sdcard/name_of_partition.img

    Name_of_partition formats: like modemst1, modemst2, laf,....
