Hardcore Android enthusiasts currently rocking an LG G2 on Verizon should enjoy this news, as an unofficial OTA build of Kit Kat has been released by third-party developers for flashing. The current installation method requires a bit of adb knowledge, but if you are comfortable with tinkering, then this should not prove too difficult for you.
The process is pretty straightforward, but there are a few tricky steps if you are unfamiliar with the device’s build history. First, you must flash a stock build of VS98012B via an available method, then root that build using a root tool from autoprime or manually doing so.
After downloading the new bin file, simply rename it, push it to the device in a specified folder, then run a few commands in adb. Once completed, the device will reboot, then you should be running Kit Kat on your G2 on Verizon. Sounds easy, right?
To get started, follow the XDA link below.
Warning: The build linked may not be a final build from LG and Verizon. As with other flashable zips from third-party developers, doing these procedures could harm your device, rendering it unusable. Proceed at your own risk.
