got my system & boot img for virgin stylo, but just bricked it trying to add tethering to build.prop. I can put imgs up somewhere, but I didn't get the stock recovery, plus you may not want the sprint variant, lemme know
Guys Blu8 linked you to the dumps I posted the other day of the T-Mobile update. Just if you use it make sure to remove some apps from the system I had a few extra apps installed when I made the dump. You can go to the last page of the thread to see my post that where I list the apps.
So pretty much this is what's going on.
If you flash the kdz for tmobile and get that small patch all you have to do is wait a few weeks or days and you'll receive the Marshmallow update for your phone.
I just received the update last night but updated this morning. It's being released slowly.
I like how the phone response time is much faster and no lag anymore is a plus.
this member uploaded a backup he made...can you get what you need from there?
Running the WFM H631, finally got the MM update in the middle of the night..
I Finally Got Marshmallow Last Night & The First Thing I Did Was Root It
Thanks Man & Every time I Reboot the LG Logo Still Shows Bootloader Unlocked lol
How long did it take from latest update (10l) to MM?
It's like my 5th date or so but no update for me yet T.T
Yeah I put in the OP of the root guide that it will ahow this o. The splash screen everytime you reboot. But you should be able to make sure "Enable OEM unlock" is on in devwloper optioms and boot to fastboot mode and run "fastboot oem lock" to get rid of it. But I have not tried it yet.
As soon as I updated to 10L I unchecked Auto-date & time & changed the time to 11:00pm ( Phone automatically checks for ota updates between 11pm -4am) & rebooted then I checked for updates and got the Marshmallow update was there
Ok & I Notice When I Reboot My Phone in TWRP It Always Says I'm Not Rooted & To Install Superuser Even Tho I'm Rooted
On a friend's Metro Stylo I flashed the T-Mobile J then took the L update ota. Then set time to 11:30 and waited waited and waited. Finally I cleared Google Services Framework and LG Update Services and the MM update popped right up. That might help someone else...
did u root itt yet?
Yes thank you! Finally got it after days by doing that.
Haven't rooted yet. Bricked mine when I rooted it so I went back to unrooted MM for now.
This can't be accurate, lol
i dont have lg update services what is the the exact name of the app when looking for it thanks i updated from katana rom also dont know if that matters did the bootstack and so for the tmobile
It seems like if you activated developer option (setting -> about phone -> tab build number 7 times -> developer option), OTA MM update get blocked.
I tested with two Stylo phones (mine & my wife's). She immediately got MM update after 10L patch because hers not rooted + carrier locked + developer mode locked. Mine had developer option unlocked, even after 5 days no MM update.
So I KDZed again, this time didn't touch anything immediately checked system update only. 10J, 10L -> MM boom.
Now I have MM on my stylo
TL DR - Do not unlock developer option, just straight go to system update and apply patches and updates.
Will try it Bard and see what happens
Developer options has nothing to do with it. It was root that caused your issue. The very first night the update was released I had flashed my T-Mobile Styli baxk to stock unrooted but had enabled developer options so I could use ADB as I had already downloaded the update.zip that had been uploaded. I wanted to try and flash it in the stick recovery and I used adb reboot recovery to boot to recovery but stock recovery on the stylo has no interface that I could use or atleast make come on screen. So this did not work. But I still got the update via OTA that night and I did have developer options enabled.
Well the thing is my Stylo wasn't rooted but didn't get MM update for 5+ days.
Case1) Stock KDZed -> updated 10J, 10L -> during update I got bored so unlocked developer option -> no root touched entire process -> No MM update
Case2) Stock KDZed -> updated 10J, 10L -> didnt mess with developer option, straight to software update -> no root touched entire process -> immediate MM update
It might be something else, I remember updating LG apps and Google Default Apps on Case1) but the clear difference was whether I unlocked DEV option or not.
NOPE. My G uses about 65-75% of battery under moderate to heavy use with mine, on an 18 hour day, unplugged. My phone's still on rooted 5.1.1. Battery Use Details is OK, but not the Usage Level.
Do you remember what time of day ot was when you flashed the kdz file the second time? The rime is a factor as the update app only checks for updatea from 11 p.m. to 4 a.m. this is why people have to turn of the time sync in settings to trick the update app.
Can confirm having that on has absolutely nothing to do with when you receive the update. I flashed the T-Mobile KDZ on my Metro Stylo and waited 24 hours with no success, developer options were turned on soon after I flashed the KDZ. After waiting 24 hours I flashed the T-Mobile KDZ one more time and again turned on developer options, promptly received the 10L OTA and started to set up my phone as usual. Not five minutes after downloading all my apps (developer options had been on since a little after first boot, checked for MM OTA and nothing) I checked the Software Updates section and there it was, the Marshmallow OTA.
TL;DR Developer options has nothing to do with receiving an OTA, there's no point trying to look for correlations like that, I could venture to say that to get the MM OTA you have to flash a T-Mobile KDZ and take OTA's up to 10L twice, but there's no cause and effect relationship there, just coincidence.
