I am no expert, but I think that the kdz updater is just an alternative updating method. So I think my phone is still not rooted. (No matter what I tried, I could not get the regular LG updater to update from v10d. I just have to thank all those who posted explanation/links for the kdz updater eg karender).
I am happy that there still has been no problems, yet. The only plus for me is that the GPS seems to lock faster. Otherwise, the other features have become less relevant to me (I no longer need app2SD because I prefer to load my apps on my tablet. Also, I still do not like the fact that the shortcuts become just generic android icons when they get loaded on the sd card).
I just put in an order for an aftermarket 2500 mA battery from HK vendor called Neewer, about $5 including shipping. For the price of a Big Mac, I thought I would take a chance. It will probably take 2-3 weeks for delivery based upon past experience. Hopefully, it will work.
