    I had my S5 Verizon rooted up until the recent update. Somehow I had inadvertently overwritten my stock recovery slot in safestrap, but because I had what appeared to be pretty decent backups, I wasn't too concerned.

    I had installed the Override DNS app which seemed to work fine, except that I noticed that the 4G notification icon no longer changed color, always staying white.

    When the recent update came out, I completely lost root, as well as my ability to use any of my root apps.

    The device essentially went back to stock as a result of the update. Despite no longer having the Override DNS app installed (I had un-installed it prior to the update) the 4G indicator still will not change color, indicating a good connection.

    Is there something else that I can do to correct this or should I even be concerned? Backups are all prior to the VZW system update, so they are not likely to work and a new Safestrap recovery for the updated version is not yet available. What is everyone else that had a rooted S5 VZW which were affected by the update doing with their devices? If you did not allow the update to run, then I consider you to be more fortunate than me. I am interested in hearing from those that did update.

    Thanks

    As I am no longer on Verizon I may have to defer to someone that has. But if your data is working, google apps syncing, and in settings about phone it shows LTE then you are good to go. I know some devices no longer light up as that was mainly a 4.1 function and later software what shows in the notification bar is what speed data you are pulling from (LTE, 3g, edge). Again I been away from Verizon for almost two years now so I could be wrong.

    Thank you for the reply. If I am reading in the proper section of About Phone, under mobile network type, it does say lte. I guess that means that I am OK. Thanks again.

    My G2 with kit Kat also shows the 4g and Wi-Fi in white. Coming from a droid 4 I was used to having the one in use be blue.

    With the last version of Jelly Bean (I think it was JB), Google changed the notifications to all white to make things uniform. Something to do with adding ability for clear notification area needed to have white to work right or something like that.

    I think every phone running kitkat has all white status bar icons I noticed that on my G2 as well once they came out with the kitkat update. The same thing happened with the Galaxy S4 when it got the update
