    Angry WARNING - OTA update today caused unwarned FACTORY RESET!!

    My G2 showed there was a System Update available for download.. so I did. Then it wanted to install it, but had errands to run, so I waited til just about an hour ago. Finally clicked the "Install Now", and IT DID A FULL FACTORY RESET.. we NO WARNING!! We just took a family vacation this past weekend, so now all my photos are gone. GONE!! DAMNIT!!

    Yes, I know there's an option to backup to the cloud, but I hadn't set it up yet. Yes, I will be doing that first this time. Piece of crap.

    Rockin my LG G2
    In your room
    Where time stands still
    Or moves at your will
    Will you let the morning come soon
    Or will you leave me lying here?

    Very weird. That is the first I have heard of this occurring.
    Mine rebooted, but back to the previous setup.
    Sorry that happened.

    Damn, that sucks. Mine updated this morning and it worked just fine. No factory reset. Now you know why you shouldn't turn off your cloud sync though.

    Did anyone do, or install, anything on the phone. Such as rooting it?

    Do you guys know what this Sprint update is for? I haven't updated my G2 yet, I'm wondering if the update is beneficial or if it's an update that takes away features, and will I be able to update the phone with the new update?

    Fixes audio issue and there is a Google security patch:

    As long as you are not rooted, upcoming updates will be no problem.
    Hopefully, the Tri-Band/Sprint Spark and also a Kit-Kat update are both in the near future.
