  1. Hi
    I have lg g3 vs985 and I live outside USA and I want to instal the last update to my phone
    how can I do this manually by my laptop is it possible
    Thanks

  2. will a factory reset “delete” the 12b update and what are the chances that the G3 i got week ago has 10b on it to begin with?

  3. Actually, it DOES block rooting IF you are not rooted already. You have to go back to 10b in order to root. If you take the update BEFORE you root, then you will not be able to root. 10b for the VS985 is the last version that allows rooting.
