So, here we are.
First off, the wait has been worth it. I can't speak of battery life, but the smoothness is amazing. The stutter that sometimes occured (and every time I'd pull on the notification shade) is now non-existent. The design is much nicer (even in apps I don't use like phone and messaging (I use True Phone and Textra, they fit my design taste)).
What I did, such as it is - it might do someone good:
Turned off both firewall and AV, just in case, then ran LG Suite as admin, plugged the phone in USB 2.0 port (I've read somewhere that is doesn't like 3.0) and it said that I have 2 updates. The download was around 1.2GB, and updating was really fast - like less than 5 minutes.
The following app optimization actually took longer than the upgrade - around 10mins.
There were some app updates from update center (remote, notes and such).
All the time the phone was plugged into the PC, and there was another update pending in LG Suite. After it was all done I let the second update get going, and it went through the motions of upgrading, but there were no restarts or anything. No idea what was that about, but I think it didn't do squat.
My software was v21a-AME-xx on 3/32GB version, and now it's v30d-AME-xx
There never was any OTA upgrade offered, this was all done via the PC Suite.
I will be doing a factory reset, because I don't believe in perfectly clean upgrades, but I see no conflicts up untill now.
My GOD, I can't believe the ordeal is over. Now I can remove the bookmark and stop haunting this page...
I might pop in to share my thoughts on battery life, and Doze in a couple of days, but then again, I might not :P
Best of luck in your upgrades.

I got a T-Mobile update this morning for 6.0.. However.. It said it was for the g4 while I'm on g3 and when I went to install it (my phone is jailbroken) it flashed some of the update kernel for less than a second and went to my custom recovery. When I rebooted I checked for update and it said one wasnt available, yet I'm still on 5.0.1

However it would appear that those of us with the 3/32GB version need to wait a while longer.
