    So, my *rooted* LG G Stylo (MS631) on Marshmallow has a new "update" from MetroPCS. I searched on Google for an update, and T-Mobile's website still says that the latest version is 20b (since I would believe the latest version would come to the T-Mobile variant, first).

    As you can see in the screenshot, it doesn't have any actual specifics in the description other than the fact that it weighs in at about 68mb.

    I tried to use FlashFire to flash the update, while keeping root access and TWRP. The notification to update still sticks around, despite pressing "Later."

    Anybody sure what this is?

    I saw this about 2 days ago... Don't think it is a good idea to let the update proceed (since I am also rooted and OTA updates have been known to 'brick' rooted phones) ... the update is not flashable so you either have to wait until someone makes a flashable zip, version, available or revert to stock (google 'metropcs stylo marshmallow update')*, follow the steps to update to this new version, then re-root (if you desire).

    *For example: Here but do one more update than mentioned (which should be the one we are being prompted about).

    Note: I am not a Guru and that is all I know... comments are welcomed!

    BUJU is correct. Don't accept any OTAs if rooted. Hopefully, someone can make a flashable zip

    Radio? As in, the FM radio? I thought that was disabled/removed in MetroPCS's variant?

    I'm also aware that I shouldn't accept the update to avoid bricking/unrooting my phone. That persistent notification is what bothers me, however.

    Radio.img always need to be in The update so it doesn't brake data. FM. Radio its something different. Thats part of the modulation on the hardware antenna. (radio.img= telephony.apk,ims.apk,wifi.apk..etc.etc.etc.)
