LG Optimus G is the first high level flagship device that was launched by LG in the first quarter of 2013. The device came with Jelly Bean 4.1 out-of-the-box and no upgrade was ever released for the device, until now. Finally, after hearing the angry cries of Optimus G users, LG Optimus G KitKat 4.4.2 update might be just around the. Surprisingly, this device is now going to receive the latest Android KitKat 4.4.2 update, directly from Jelly Bean 4.1.
SFR, the French operator of LG Optimus G is currently testing the KitKat 4.4.2 Rom for any bugs or performance issues that might be left. According to a news release by the SFR operator, update will be released as soon as the testing phase is complete. Once this update is released for France region, it’s possible that this update will be released for other countries too.
This update will bring all the good features of KitKat 4.4.2 and might also carry some additional features. According to some senior XDA members, this update will either bring Knock On or Knock Code with it. Since the update is still in testing phase, we are not entirely sure what other new features this update might bring other than the features already existing in KitKat 4.4.2.
Since these updates are released in gradual steps, even when released for a region, it might be a while until the update is available in your phone. So, even if you are in France and SFR decides to release the update for all of the France regions, it might be a while until the update arrives on your device.
Once the update arrives for your device, you will receive an OTA update notification message on your device’s notification screen. Just tap on this notification and then follow the onscreen prompts.
If an update is available in your region, you can manually check if it’s available for your device instead of waiting for the notification to arrive automatically. To manually check whether an official notification update is available for your phone, go to Settings > About phone > Software updates > Check for software updates.
So what do you think about this step from LG? Do you think “better late than never” proverb can be applied here or are you still mad at LG for waiting this long for an update?
