    Has anyone gotten a new update pushed to there device? I had a notification that there was an update for system software and I hit (update) and it booted to recovery and ran a few seconds and an error came up so I held power down and rebooted and everything is as it was. I think it failed because I'm rooted, I guess. But anyway, I went to the root cache and snatched the update zip it downloaded. It is 413 mb. I am not a dev but I am sure we could use this zip for something. If you are a Dev and you think you can do something with it PM me. If anyone else gets this update and it installs please post what it is.

    I got the update today. I am not rooted. The phones overall preformance has been sluggish and laggy so far to say the least. Once the update installed and it "optimized" the apps on the phone things changed. The lag is nearly gone now. I bought this phone for the Mrs for her birthday this year and was quite unhappy until today. I want to root it soon, but when I got it I wasnt able to find any way to do it.

    I got the update too and i am rooted plus i de-bloated the ROM and the update failed. i restored all the stock apps and un-rooted and it failed again so I guess you're sol if you're rooted until we get a working recovery.

    Update gave me an error, forgot to wipe my cache.
    Now that I went to recover and wiped cache it's saying I don't have an update anymore.

    You have to wipe before you download the update cause it's placed in temp storage

    No, I mean like I'm going to settings -> system updates -> Update Firmware
    And I'm getting the message "No firmware update available"

    Edit 1: Decided I don't have all that much important saved internally on phone. I rarely play games on my phone and all pics/videos are on SD card.
    Gonna do a factory restore and then try to update from there.

    Edit 2: Still says no firmware update available

    Edit 3: After updating/redownloading everything the prompt came up to update. Currently trying to update.

    Edit 4: Error!

    No,no. I did end up finding it. the issue is that it won't update. and the update won't appear again without resetting all my phone data.

    For it to show up again to give me the option to update. I've given up trying to update for now. perhaps once we get TWRP i can just restore someone's backup of the update. Or LG updates their LG Support Tool to include our phone.

    Thanks kdraw44

    So I have update.zip now and tried to install it from stock recovery however I'm getting the following error

    "/system/bin/install-recovery.sh" has unexpected contests.
    E:Error in /sideload/package.zip (Status 7)

    Apparently this comes from rooting however I have both unrooted and even system restored my device. Anyone have any idea of any steps I can take to fix this?
