    Has anyone on a mpcs or tmo variant received the 6.0 ota? Its been confirmed that it'll be released but obviously it hasnt happened as quickly for us as it has boost/sprint etc customers.

    Isn't it set to "T-Mobile testing" already?

    That's basically what the tutorial does, it flashes the T-Mobile ROM into a metropcs device.

    I am on mpcs 10j stock no root. I downgraded from Katana. Every time i try to flash the H63120b kdz file i get a "cannot connect to server" error. I am using Lg Flash tool , ran as administrator. My phone is in download mode. I am on Windows 10. I have also installed the lg drivers and H63120 kdz is in the folder with i made on my desktop with all the files from the lg flash tool zip. Does anyone know if I am in error? If so how do I fix it. My phone still works, and didnt go passed 0% in download mode. I pulled the usb cable and battery, and started it right back up.

    Heres what i did @RonnieMatson. I extracted LG Flash tool to my desktop. I put the 20b kdz from tmo in the folder with the LG Flash Tool. Powered off my phone waited 10 seconds. I put my phone in DL mode, ran LG Flash tool as admin, loaded the kdz, hit CSE flash, hit start, cleared registry, selected different country, and english. The flash started as shown and i got the normal error. But my phone does nothing. It just stays at 0% in DL mode until i do a battery pull and restart my phone. I am on stock 10j, have oem unlock checked, as well as usb debugging. I no longer have root, as i downgraded to stock from katana. I am also a metro user, and have the stylo with the new cheaper screen.

    There's a cheaper screen now?
    Also, are you attempting to install the update (to marshmallow) manually instead of doing it OTA?

    Yes they put out a cheaper screen when they did the price drop. And yes i am trying to force my phone to update to MM using the kdz and lg flash tool.

    Phew, thank god i got mine for $100 on swappa.
    That said, at the moment you currently cannot upgrade to MM using the kdz files.
    You need to follow the steps on the video (which requires you to upgrade to 110I) and manually reset the device, change the time to 11:30pm and check for updates which in turn will activate the need to upgrade to MM.

    so your next step is ROOT? let me tell you that root is possible but looking for a good recovery will put your phone into a bootloop! now, if u get this problem and cant return back to a rooted Rom.......I know how, but it will revert back to h63110j. at least your can still have root with a recovery. so let me know if you have problems and cannot get back to an OS. i will write down the process.
