    Default Verizon Data connection issue after root with LG G2VS980

    Rooted LG G2VS980 with Kingo Root and created data connection issue. No 4g connection at all. 3g in and out. Have tried all the data and 3/4g settings changes to no avail

    Welcome to AC
    Did you just root the device? Or did you flash a kernel/ROM as well? In any case, it's likely that one of the exploits broke functionality on your device since it was working fine in the past.

    I'd suggest unrooting the device and seeing if that restores it.

    OK thanks. I started to try that but looks pretty drawn out and complicated. Can you recommend the best/easiest path to do that.

    thanks for your help

    Which root method did you use?
    Is there a SuperSU app in your app drawer?

    I used Kingo Root. yes Supersu is installed. I tried using esfile explorer to unroot but it will not work on my phone.

    I also tried to unroot using the SUPERSU tool but that doesnt work either

    What happens when you click full unroot from within SuperSU?

    it takes the command and starts the process and says "uninstalling please wait" but it just stays like that and never finishes the process

    How long did you wait? I'd imagine that would take a bit of time.

    ok ,SUPERSU would not do it so I downloaded a app called "Universal Unroot" and that did the trick. phone is unrooted but still have the connection issue. BTW I tried another sim card also and no change

    it toggles between 1g and 3g but never goes to 4g

    Hmm, maybe it's a carrier issue? Do you have access to another phone to test if those are connecting to 4G.

    At this point I'd suggest just taking it into a carrier store. Tough to help you out with something like this if I can't actually see the device. Hopefully they'd be able to get something worked out
