    I can't understand how some people think this is difficult. I have already went to stock unrooted. rerooted with custom recovery and reflashed my favorite backup and my phone is back in the identical state it was just 30 minutes ago. IMO This phone is about as easy as it gets.

    Double click to open the zip file the move the unziped folder to the unroot folder. Then you will double click on the odin folder and right click on the odin exe file and choose run as administrator. Since you already have odin unzipped. you will just have to open the odin folder and right clicl on the file and choose to open it as administrator.

    There is a preparing your computer section and a using odin section. you would start at the using odin section since it is already installed.

    Yes the same folder that you made on the desktop.

    He is talking about the software and baseband version. The newest ota updated our software to LG8. He didn't like the update. So he went back to the original software version (LEN) and let it update up to LG8. It is a roundabout way to remove an update that you don't like.

    Actually it is in the unroot zip file. I don't have a clue what it's for so I just left it there.

    After doing this can I just install LG8 and it has all previous updates included or to I have to install all prvious before LG8?

    Because the only zips I have is LEN to LF9 and LG2 to LG8. I don't have (if there is one) the zip from LF9 to LG2.

    Hopefully that made sense.

    By the way I am on LG2 right now.

    Not entirely sure. I would let it update just to make sure. LEN will update to lf9 immediately after 1st boot. LF9 will update to LG2 immediately after the 2nd boot. Then do the manual update to LG8.

    I have already went to stock unrooted. rerooted with custom recovery and reflashed my favorite backup and my phone is back in the identical state it was just 30 minutes ago.
    What did you use to reflash your favorite backup? For example, I'm currently using Apex Launcher Pro and have all the apps and pages set up like I want them. Is there an easy way to get it back to that state?

    On my Epic 4, I used Titanium Backup Pro to restore apps and data one by one (batch restore caused issues) and it sometimes took a few hours to get my phone back like I had it.

    I'm currently using a modified LG2 patch found in the thread below and was wondering what's the easiest way to update to LG8 and return my phone to the exact state it's in now.

    [CUSTOM UPDATE] LG2 Patch for Custom Roms - xda-developers

    Thanks for any advice!
