So I guess just by flashing a rom that has a different version update doesn't let you bypass the lg tool. If you want I'll still do a factory reset of the zv8 copy I have and upload it so you can have a copy.
No, it will not let you update anymore once you do initially.
I listed the reason for this somewhere, but I don't remember where.
Anyways,t he cause of it, and the ENTIRE reason I developed this thread, and requested the sticky is because of the way LG coded the application.
I disassembled the code for it the other day, and took a REALLY extensive look at it, and it turns out that when you update the phone the IMEI and Serial of the phone are turned into LG's server as well as your phone number, and administrator details for the phone. This essentially allows LG to "block" the update feature until you get another phone, which if you do more than likely be the OTA ZV9 and then you can upgrade to ZVA again, but there's not a way that I have found yet to disable this function.
The way they programmed the app it literally locks the application until a request is sent back from their server stating what software you last upgraded to. Unfortunately it's not a php pull/get system, because if it were, I could have coded a workaround script in hours and we'd be good to go.
This is the entire reason that it's necessary for us to get every available rom listed on this thread. To help the devs figure out how to get tethering to work inside the rom, to help people have the version that suits them best, and to help the community stay clean of requests for things that are already here
I added "stripped" version of the existing rom today which has about 14 more apps than the normal "debloat" removed to further enhance battery life, and memory on the phone, so hopefully that'll prove useful for some.
I tested the phone with a solid reboot, home launcher initialization, and launched the play store, and attempted a download, EVERY time I uninstalled an application, and have noticed NO issues on MY phone, but that doesn't guarantee anything, and it's for that reason I also included the stock apps with their corresponding odex files.
