    Will being rooted cause issues getting the upgrade?

    On my other devices I haven't had issues with rooting not letting you upgrade . only time I had an issue was when I had flashed a different Rom or deleted system applications but as far as root on a lucid doubt know if it will mess it up or not

    I returned to stock just in case because when I was rooted I kept getting fc's when I tried checking the update

    after un rooting do you still get the force closes?? i have my lucid rooted and i havent got any force closes when checking for update. if i need to i will unroot cause the upgrade will break root anyway if it does take it

    I'm still getting nothing. Almost noon EST. Neither the phone's check for updates nor the PC software are finding any update. I *am* rooted, dunno if that matters though.

    Just received a e-mail notification of a post on the LG support site. Person says that the ICS update will actually consist of two separate updates - FWIW.

    BOOM! Just forced an OTA and I have my first Software Update!

    Let's hope rooting doesn't blow it up. :D

    Grrr. Looks like the root or CWM might be killing the update. Ran the first update and rebooted, but phone just shut off. Powered back on and got the android screen with the bar going across the bottom, but the update failed. Rebooting now to see what's up.

    Yep. Software update failed. I'll need to unroot methinks.

    UPDATE: Download with LG software is working now. I'll try that before unrooting. Will lose some data, but I've done that enough before. :)

    blumeany Well-Known Member

    I'm trying Gingerbreak to unroot, since the download was going slow. :)

    Edit: Gingerbreak didn't work, but luckily I still have the unroot tool (Based off the spectrum) to use. Trying that now.

    I just tried the 5.7, seems like maybe not the right thing to do? We'll see, installing now.

    Also, if you update with the update tool on the computer, doesn't it erase everything, as well as make it so you can't hard reset back to gingerbread, in case this update has terrible problems or something?
