    Some apps detect root by the superuser apk. The way I get around it is by changing the name of superuser to something else. Worth a try

    That's not good news. I have not gotten the OTA yet. I purchased this phone used unknowing it was rooted. So after soft bricking the device I returned it to stock at&t firmware. I hope I don't run into this issue.

    I flashed back to stock, download mode says I'm now "Unrooted" but can't seem to pull the Q update nor the new kitkat update.. tried setting date back and even using the PC Suite app..

    I would just be patient. I have never had much luck trying to force and OTA push.

    When I first reinstalled the stock at&t firmware I instantly got the last OTA the one that was a preparation for Kit Kat. Do you think I will be fine once KitKat pushes to my device?

    Should be fine. Not everyone on AT&T is getting the update at the same time.

    I just flashed KitKat (4.4.2) with the LG Flash Tool that is used to unroot and get back to stock. Everything seems to be working fine.

    Awesome. I have still not received the OTA which is fine, I usually get them pretty late. But I put my phone in download mode and it registers as "UNROOTED" now so I am sure I will be good to go. I have never rooted a phone so this is all new to me. I did not know you could "UNROOT" it. Now I know.
