I was already rooted and let the update install, all before coming on here to make sure it was ok... How do I get root back? What should I do? :thinking:

Thanks, I got this message when I tried to download the ls740_zv4.zip though so I guess I'll have to try later..

I'm so glad I came and checked before allowing this update to occur on my rooted phone.

Question for OP. Did you have busybox or Superuser installed after you rooted with towelroot?

I'm curious if you lost root because of that OR if that will affect this update in anyway. I have Busybox on mine and I have this darn update staring me in the face. I stopped myself before ALMOST updating this morning and checked here. So now - I'm at a juncture of what to do. I don't have to do this update and am quite happy with my phone's performance as is.

1. IF I can update with Busybox and NOT loose root...I will.

2. Otherwise I just want to remove the damn update notice.

Any thoughts?...anyone :)
