    Anyone know if this can break the root method? Or anything else included other than what is in the PDF? Here is a link to the pdf file on Verizon's website detailing the update.

    http://m-support.verizonwireless.com/pdf/system_update/lg_spectrum.pdf

    The only thing it says is "Netflix playback enhanced."


    One of the things I did first after rooting was to update the Netflix app. The problem I am having is there seems to be no way too stop the update. It gives me about 3 minutes warning before doing it anyway. I can force start it early or "postpone " but not skip or cancel.

    Agreed. This is a patch, not a version update, so root should not be affected.

    Well I had to go to the dmv and get my car title (whoo ooh!). While there I had my phone on silent. When I got out I guess the update ran. I am now stuck in the cmw boot loop. And I won't have access to a computer until wed. (Sending this from my wife's Evo Shift)

    Actually, the update does remove root and it is the update that everyone sees when they first get their phone or they flash the v3 .cab file I know from having it flash many times while recovery my phone. The thing is, the update should not auto install as you have CWM installed. Are you on the new CWM touch recovery or the old standard recovery?

    I know my info is spread out on a few posts, I installed the one click root/CWM on Sunday morning after downloading it Saturday afternoon. It was the old one, I planned on updating to touch (had it on my Evo, by the way Verizon gave me $85 for it, else I would have kept it, gazelle only offers $44) but I had to go to Kinko's to root my phone, since I am, still, out of town and brought the wrong charger for my laptop. I got lucky and the guy working was a computer not quite techie, was by himself, and the store was empty. He gave me the employee card to use on the computer so I would not get billed for the time. Very cool, it had full admin access on the machine, so I made sure to clean up good when done.

    And that is the only reason I got rooted.

    Well I could not go 3 days without a phone while on vacation, so I took it back to Verizon and got a replacement. Now I have to wait till tomorrow to root again, but at least I've done it once and now know what I need to do, should be able to get it correct in about 15 minutes instead of 3 hours this time.

    Also, was just over on XDA and apparently they don't have root yet on this phone (or a spectrum forum page) I sent a good number of replies telling people to head this way, but I am disappointed as that means not a lot of Dev activity over there for our device. And having more than one site working on the device means more goodies for the rest of us...

    Meh... xda is a waste of time/space. It's kids talking shit to each other 99% of the time and very little actual dev'ing. I post here and RootWiki, where the knowledgeable people post.
