    Hello Androidcentral!

    While being on root, the update from Android 4.4.2 to Lollipop was pushed to the G3, causing me to miss the update. I recently unrooted to get the update. However, the G3 doesn't seem to have a manual button to update it. Is there any way to still get Lollipop?

    Greetings,

    If you're already rooted install TWRP and flash the Stock_VZ8 rom over at XDA. Once you take the OTA you lose all root capabilities.

    As I said, I already did an unroot since I don't need root. Is there any way to get the official Lollipop-update or do I just need to wait for the next update?

    Hello Gottria,

    As I said I already did an unroot, since I don't need root. Can't I just get the Lollipop update from somewhere? Or do I need to wait for the next update?

    Sorry, I'm new here, this isn't going very smoothly. As I said, I already did an unroot since I don't need root. Is there any way to get the official Lollipop-update or do I just need to wait for the next update?

    Do you have tabs in settings? Or just a long list? Either way it will be at the very bottom located by about phone where you check your Android Version.
