Play it safe and don't update unless you have the stock recovery installed and unrooted your device. But that's if you want the update, otherwise you could be running CM7 or CM9 nightly builds which are on CyanogenMod's site. I'm using CM9 and everything's working awesomely.

Still waiting if anyone has tried manually updating a rooted phone.

I wouldnt mind updating but I'm rooted and dont want to brick it.

EDIT***

Meh - I installed SuperOneClick v2.3.3.0 and unrooted. Then ran the LG Updater app which updated the phone - Then ran SOC and rooted. All set.

just jacked my phone up by updating, I rooted it a while back but only advatage i took was a tethering app which was the only reason i rooted in the first place. I put clockword recov and have a backup. I updated this morning then set my phone down while it updated, came back it was off. Turned it on and went into clockword mod recovery, I've rebooted many times, then tried restore multiple times, it goes through the motions then goes to recovery again. Then i tried factory reset, then restore again, and so far no change that i can see. CW mod 5.0.2.7

Someone else may have other ideas for you but if I was in your situation, I would try to flash a new ROM. cm7 is just like the stock ROM but with a bunch of cool options.

Ya so, the first part of that post has 3 files for me to dl and the link is broke : / so no go on that one. But i dont think i've been wipng the system previously so i'm attempting it right now.

CWM actually wipes everything on the system restore i'm attempting first after i wiped everything i could but the sd card. so i'm thinking this is probably fail.

I will see if i cant find the files that are missing on that link some otherway


Yes that did not work : / still just botting CWM
