    Side note. Has any one every jad a probelm w towel root as far as secrity? A while ago when it was workingmy phone informed me about the app attemting to access some securities. I forget the exact warning message. Butwanted to see if any one can say this is an unsafe or safe app.

    The only thing you can do at this point is use the Unbrick Guide to flash the zv7 firmware. It provides a step-by-step guide to setting up and using the LG Flash Tool (LGFT). Without root and a nandroid backup there is no other way to rollback a firmware version. As far as Towel root goes, I have not heard anything bad. If you prefer to use something else though, Stump will root zv7 too.

    I uninstalled the app after rooting. No need to keep it installed. I have it on my SDcard just incase I need to install it and root again.

    You will need to follow the unbrick method to bring the phone back to v7. Do not root. Wait for the update for v8 and install, then use Stump to root.

    Your problem is because you were rooted when you did the upgrade. Stump is showing a false positive, thinking that your rooted.
