    Default temp rooting & kernels

    hi. new to android (from ios) and rooting. my phone is lg g2 L-01F. I found a rootkit on the xda forums for it, unfortunately after the OTA update it's only temp root. the dev did provide a kernel to apply perma root so my question is if I flash this kernel enabling perma root but later flash another kernel will I lose root? thank you

    Welcome to the forums.
    If I had to guess, I would say yes. You are correct. This method of rooting is the first I have heard of.
