    Hey, got a NIB (supposedly) G3 recently. Making the jump from Windows.
    It's the T-mobile version and I'm using it with AT&T.
    Problem -- It is still on 4.4.2. I expected a couple updates once I got it up and running. At least to 5.x, possibly 6.0 as it appears that's what T-mobile is currently offering on this phone -- as of August.
    No updates have arrived and I've been searching forums for hours trying to figure out a work around. It won't update via LG PC suite and I haven't gotten it to work through the LG mobile support tool.
    So just for kicks and grins I d/l'd a root checker and it says I'm rooted! No idea why that would be. Any thoughts?

    So no my searching has changed to how to upgrade it manually.

    Yes, it was an overseas ebay purchase. I think it shipped out of singapore.
    After one failed attempt I was eventually able to flash it to the stock 10c 4.4.2 software. After a day's worth of updating it is finally running the 30e 6.0 released in August.
    Now I'm reading up on how to root this version so I can get rid of all the T-mo junk.
