After seeing the Kit Kat (Android 4.4.2) update for Verizon’s version of the LG G2 become available through VZW’s Software Upgrade Assistant, we figured the OTA (over-the-air) update would rollout at any minute. Sure enough, Verizon has approved it and posted the changelog for build VS98024A, which means it really should be here with a couple of days, if not today for all to download. (more…)
The LG G2 Kit Kat (Android 4.4.2) update from Verizon is finally available as build VS98024A, though you can’t exactly grab it over-the-air. No, sir, this update is currently only available through Verizon’s Software Upgrade Assistant, which is only available on Windows for LG phones. Sorry, Mac homies.
In order to update on Windows, all you have to do is plug-in your LG G2, then either wait for Windows to prompt you for an action or open a folder and look for a Verizon/LG drive to appear. In that folder, you should find a SWUpgradeLauncher app that will walk you through the steps to getting your Kit Kat on. (more…)
Verizon launched a new mid-range device this morning, the Lucid 3 from LG.
