Yes, if you have custom recovery it won't install.

There's a large number of threads covering the update (referred to as LS670ZVC or just VC).

The update checks to make sure the files it expects to patch are in place before starting the patching process. If stuff isn't as expected, it aborts.

You are probably best off doing the unroot and return to stock procedure if you want VC.

It isn't going to magically make your experience better. IMO if you are happy with what you have don't bother, there aren't enough reasons to upgrade. If you have a problem with the sdcard that wasn't able to be resolved with a different sdcard, maybe you might want to try this update, but I don't know if anyone confirmed the release note's claim that it fixes the sdcard problem.

There is a thread discussing differences here:

Easy as typing a paragraph

is it easy to remove custom recovery then put right back?

Most things are easy, one must just follow instructions provided. For those not familiar, there are adb instructions that can be copied and then pasted to avoid mis typing of the commands.

It's not that easy at this point in time. If you want to have a rooted phone with custom recovery and the ability to load ROMs you need to follow the procedures outlined in this thread: http://forum.androidcentral.com/lg-...-guide-rooting-software-version-ls670zvc.html

I've been holding off until ROMs based on the VC update are rolled out and stable... it appears that ThunderROM based on the VC update has recently been released so I'll be jumping in soon.

as of now i dont have the system vc update thats why i want to remove my custom recovery because that isnt letting my phone update, if theres a way i can update without needing to remove custom recovery i would love that

I recommend you read the thread I linked too before doing what you described. Doing what you described will make it a bit harder to root and load custom roms in the future.
