    You can't revert back.

    You can probably flash an older firmware if you have the files, but it's trickier than rooting. I have no experience with LG devices though. You can do this on Samsungs so I suppose the same could be for LG.

    Flashing different firmware versions on an LG handset is actually very easy. You need something called a kdz file, which you should be able to get here: http://devtester.ro/projects/lg-firmwares/

    You also need something called LGUP, which you can download here: http://forum.xda-developers.com/g4/help/lgup-install-kdz-mm-lp-t3249803

    However, it would seem LG/T-Mobile have implemented something called Anti Rollback on the G4, meaning you can't go back to earlier software versions unless it's done in a very specific way - http://forum.xda-developers.com/g4/general/psa-warning-try-to-downgrade-g4-t3197675

    If your current firmware version is 20i, you can only go back to firmware version 10n, but you'd need to read through the xda thread in its entirety to be doubly sure.
