New software has been available via OTA update for T-Mobile branded LG G2 (D801), the new Software Version is D80110g, with the Build Number JDQ39B. Sadly, it isn’t Android 4.4 KitKat, but only Android 4.2.2 Jelly Bean, but we are still lucky with this update, as it will improve our device’s performance. One of the drawbacks – which was also experienced by other devices that get software updates – is that we will lose root after updating our T-Mobile LG G2 to D80110g.
The lack of superuser privileges could be a pain for some folks who rely on the app that requires su access, however, just don’t make it as the main reason to not take the OTA update. Considering that now there is a new method that reportedly works to make our T-Mobile LG G2 with D80110g has root.
Thanks to autoprime, a recognized developer from xda who instantly update the ioRoot exploit and make it compatible with D80110g software version, so now we can apply the OTA confidently.
