AT&T Optimus G Pro

More Android 4.4 KitKat goodness is on the way to AT&T subscribers. Anyone rocking the LG Optimus G Pro should be getting update notifications. Changes include fresh status and navigation bars, a new full-screen mode, improved security, responsiveness, and battery life, Google Cloud Printer support, and all of the other good stuff you expect from Android KitKat.

The last KitKat updates we saw on AT&T for an LG device was for the G Flex, while the G2 got the royal treatment awhile back. Any of you guys using an LG Optimus G Pro get the KitKat update yet? Are you seeing notable performance improvements? How many of you with an LG phone are still waiting on KitKat?

Must be a staged rollout again. I tried to manually check for a software update and received an error message "Your phone is not registered yet please try again in 24 hours." Called ATT tech support who thought my G Pro running 4.1.x was the most current software available at the moment. Maybe tomorrow? Also phone was never rooted and bought from an ATT store.

Jaxland101 says:

Yep. Got the same "not registered yet" message. Hopefully it will be rolled out quickly.

svrjn says:

Any luck getting the update? Mine is saying the same. I am unlocked outside of the U.S. for now.

jeffhesser says:

I still love my G Pro. Course I've had CM11 on it for months now but what a great piece of hardware.

htatc says:

Have not gotten the update notification yet. But waited this long. I can wait a little more. Still loving my G Pro though.

Hopefully the Optimus G will get it as well :)

NoNexus says:

got a 50/50 shot at it. You will see this summer.

I think it definitely deserves to get it. It'll definitely make LG look better.

limitbreak09 says:

Nice!! Hopefully.... But still nice! I got my moto x and now mu og pro will get kitkat!

I became tired of waiting and ran with CM 11 a few months ago. I still love my G Pro. It's the first phone I've kept longer than 4 months. CM 11 breathed lots of new life.

dachiefmizzy says:

I've waited so long for this update and yes this phone performs amazingly still since say one, battery life and all. I hope they also added the knock on feature like they did with the G Flex.

quailallstar says:

Very nice. Now someone make a flashable zip with root :-)

MrsNosferatu says:

I had the same error too

Jhelum B says:

I am non AT&T Optimus G Pro user based in India. When I try to check for updates, I get 'You are currently using the latest version for current OS.' Although I love my year old beast, I would love to see any update that makes it more powerful!

Ryan Schoeb says:

I've got a phone call with tech support tomorrow about this software update issue. ATT tech has tried to push an update to my phone twice without luck. Apparently the issue with the download is that it shows all the G Pro's are not connected to a data network (or wifi) so no popup occurs on our end. When manually updating the G Pro just spins its wheels but nothing happens. Will try to figure out what is going on tomorrow 12:30 Pacific Standard Time.

Jnino_95 says:

Keep us updated if you find a way! We've been waiting too long for this moment for it not to go smoothly

I have this phone but have switched over to a Straight Talk SIM. Is there anyway to get this update? Thanks

From what I hear, the IMEI number of your phone is registered with AT&T (if you bought the ATT E980 through AT&T), so no matter what the current carrier, AT&T will push the update to you. I too have the phone now running on T-Mobile. Checking for an update with my T-Mobile sim card or with no sim car at all both results in the "Your phone is not registered yet" error message. I understand this is because the update is being released in batches, but I'm not 100% confident that is the reason.

Jaxland101 says:

GOOD NEWS EVERYONE! I was able to get an AT&T rep to push the update along to my phone even with the "device not registered" message. I will try and reply/edit this comment once I get the update.

Try to contact AT&T online tech support live agent and see if the rep can push the update to you. My rep had me disconnect from Wi-Fi to get it to my phone then reconnect to wi-fi download it onto my phone.

Jaxland101 says:

yeah um unfortunately it didn't work. it said it was an invalid software package. sorry guys

Jaxland101 says:


had to do a factory reset but I got KIT KAT on my g pro

Devin T1 says:

Factory reset you will loose all your data correct? How did you go about saving everything before you did the reset?

Jaxland101 says:

Yes factory reset will erase ur items. I saved it under my google account I guess.

The rep had me reset it so it can get pushed through.

After the factory reset, did you still have to get ATT to push it to your phone? Or did you just do a software check on your phone?

I tried both. Did a factory reset and it didn't work so I called At&t and they did some provisioning and still nothing. The rep said the same thing, that the update is being released in batches and will not hit every body's phone at the same time. She said it could take up to a week for some people and others might get it right away.

Jaxland101 says:

The rep I had both pushed the update to me and had me check to see if the update got to my phone correctly.

It took awhile for the update to be pushed to my phone from them so if u r doing the agent way, be prepared to wait. Awhile. Thank you YouTube.

I had a bad feeling thats what had to be done in order to receive the update because i had to do the same thing with my samsung galaxy sucks losing all my apps and downloads everything else google will back up.

Sanjay Aryal says:

When I tried to update LG G Pro E980 received a message " Your phone is not registered yet pease try again in 24 hours" I changed the date and again tried it several time but same error message. Any solution for update. My phone is unlocked to AT&T and I am using it in Nepal.

NPSgator says:

Factory reset your phone. Start a live chat with att tech support and have them push update to you

MrBlogz says:

Spoke to someone at AT&T today and they said "They had to take the update back due to phones having complications downloading & running the update". AT&T doesn't know when the fix is gonna be available for the masses to download. A message will be sent to your phone when the updated fix is ready. That might explain why everyone kept getting the "your phone is not registered yet" error message when trying to initiate the update manually...

Juan Castro4 says:

So can you keep us posted on when the update gets fix or when you get it if you do.

kochjm says:

I just got prompted to update and am loading the update now!!

GTcase_com says:

I still received the error "your phone is not registered yet" error. I call the ATT support. they said I can not receive the update due to my phone is unlocked. is that true ?? thanks

GTcase_com says:

just talk to another tech support and he push the software to my phone. now is installing. it takes long time to download( about 1.5hr). if you guys receive the error, just call and talk to the tech support.

Nita Ell1 says:

You will regret it

Tom Shott says:

I think you have to register the phone with LG, does not matter about carrier. LG sends the registration to the carrier. Otherwise "it is not registered", get it? Not registered...

Albert Cox1 says:

I just had AT&T register my IMEI and am getting the same "not registered" message. I asked them to push to my phone but, that is a no go according to AT&T. Chat message below.

Thank you for your patience! Your AT&T Representative will be with you shortly.
All AT&T Representatives are currently assisting others. Thank you for your patience. Your AT&T Representative will be with you shortly.
Welcome! You are now chatting with 'Michael Ratliff '
Michael Ratliff : Hi, Albert!
Albert Cox: Hi
Michael Ratliff : I see you're chatting in about your kitkat update on your LG, I know how important the latest software is.
Michael Ratliff : There is actually a known issue with the update and user not being able to, we already have a team on it and expect it to be resolved soon.
Albert Cox: OK thanks, is there a way to push the update to my device?
Michael Ratliff : I don't have that option right now, that's part of the problem actually.
Albert Cox: Got it, can you verify my IMEI number is @#$%^&*()!@?
Michael Ratliff : Yup, that's what we have.
Albert Cox: Ok got it, so I have to standby until your ATT&T team can resolve on your end. Is this correct?
Michael Ratliff : Yes, it's an issue with the update from LG.
Michael Ratliff : LG/ATT
Michael Ratliff : I don't have an ETA yet either.
Albert Cox: Ah, understood. Thanks for your help.
Michael Ratliff : Thank you Albert, was there anything else I can help you with today?
Albert Cox: No I am good. Thanks again.

I just got off chat with att and they told me that they had 2 other customers with the same issue and when they tried to push the update through it caused more problems. I was also told that i needed to replace my phone as a possible reason its not working. Yet was told right after that the update is no available at all. It doesnt exist. So i set up a ticket for a call back in a week if i dont receive it within a week. I have also verified that my IMEI number is matching at&t as well as registered on both there and LG end. I emailed LG and they tell me that its at&t end that is causing the problem and vis versa. So if anyone can give me suggestions as to how i can get this update without factory reset as i have already done this with no luck that would be great. Ill keep checking in.

Albert Cox1 says:

I factory reset as well. Still unable to update. The inconsistent responses from at&t is extremely frustrating.

Tell me about. I have spoken to att on the phone multiple times as well as chat just about 10 min ago and no update

Hey good news i checked for the update and as of now it is actually downloading. So keep checking and make aure you reset your phone every once in a while. Thats seemed to help. It became available this morning but i was at work so i had to wait till now.

Ive restarted phone, factory reset and nothing.. this is beyond frustrating

Albert Cox1 says:

I just checked again as Noremak suggested and got the update. Thanks Noremak. I did not reset again. :-)

Still nothing

No problem. Nerds unite lol let me.know what everyone likes dislikes and any new features

Albert Cox1 says:

Keep trying, maybe it is a staged roll out. You can manually change the date on your phone so that it will let you keep checking. Good luck.

Installed and everything??? Im on june 28th lol and still nothing

Albert Cox1 says:

Yes Android version 4.4.2 build # KOT49I.E98020g Software version E98020g. Good luck man, hang in there.

Awesome... notice any improvements?

Albert Cox1 says:

Just a little snappier. Notification icons are white now. No tap to wake. Nothing to go crazy about after the update.

Oh okay.. still want it lol.. and still trying

vladinvt says:

I was also getting the "not registered" when checking for updates. I went to an AT&T store last night and got a new SIM card. When I got home I checked and it said that my software was up to date. I changed the date on my phone by 24 hours and ran the check again. It said that it was downloading the software and to check my notifications. There was nothing there. At around 5 am I got a notification that there was new software and I am almost done downloading (80% done). Give it a shot peeps.

catfan says:

My ogp said not registered yet all week, until today, checked my update and it was there, almost 800mb total, had it downloaded and installed in under an hour, Wahoo! Found the Google cloud print, newly designed clear ram widget, but haven't found any knock on feature, or anything really interesting???? What the ..........? Maybe I am looking in the wrong area?

Ok well my phone is unlocked and I still get the not registered yet and when I called t-mobile they said an att rep should help me so I called att and the dude was rude about it as if he was almighty god or aomething but long story short he couldnt pusthe update since I'm not serviced with them

I've been getting the same message, You give me some hope.

I too get get the "Your phone is not registered yet please try again in X Hrs"
But the thing is, I Have registered my phone with LG. I'm looking at the confirmation i got months ago from LG, where they say "Thank you for registering your new LG Product.."

If they don't fix it soon then, I hope they release a downloadable zip version, that i can transfer to my phones internal storage.

Lonny Miller says:

After getting the "not registered" for 2 days in a row, I registered my phone with LG
I got the update the next day, BUT now I want to go back
The Quick Cover no longer works properly, no more - on when you open it and off when you close it,
Also screws up all my alarms and timers - they only last a split second before the Quick Cover being closed makes it go right into snooze mode or pause. I have tried ALL the settings - nothing changes it.
This update may be good for some things in the background (speed etc) but I have not noticed anything
BUT the main feature that is immediate in your face is having to take double or triple steps to get around the quick cover, I will probably have to take it off, leaving my screen UNPROTECTED

Xenon89 says:

Battery life is HORRIBLE after update!! Anyone else has a similar experience? I recently bought this phone and was loving it for many things especially the battery life. Now I wish i didn't update it.

rizzle00 says:

im having the same problem.. battery life sucks major ass and my phone stays in airplane mode 8 out of the 10 hrs i work a day.. and im down to 70%.. it drops fast idk wtf that is about..

Patty Sommer says:

Glad I'm not the only one with the battery life (or lack of life). It's crazy. Called AT & T, and they were absolutely no help. Said no one else has had a problem. He did suggest I just leave it plugged in all the time! Not sure what to do next.

I got the new KK update, its horrible, phone dies so fast, my apps are all lag, need JB back..

yea, me too, battery life was great before update, now it Sucks, complained to AT&T they gave me a new battery, but I'd rather go back to the old software, Have you discovered any Fixes? Len

Same here...any fix for this yet? Please help us. My phone used to last 2 days and now it wont even last a day with full charge. On top of that, the phone is sometimes useless and wont function.

Xenon89 says:

Also daydream function does not work and auto brightness is messy as well. but main thing is battery life, I wish I could go back to jellybean, this phone was amazing.

Nita Ell1 says:

This latest update totally screwed my kb up! Backspace doesnt erase most of the time, I WANT MY LG KB BACK! I cannot change it ...i hate it! Kb is nonresponsive ALOT.

Nita Ell1 says:

Battery life is worse! WHAT did u do to my lg optimus g pro? ??? Keyboard sucks! Doesnt respond...delete doesnt work. UNDO THIS RETARDED UPDATE! PLEASE!

Xenon89 says:

How do we file a complaint? The battery life issue ruined my phone.

I am with ya,, need to file a complaint and get this fixed fast like,,

Xenon89 says:

Before when it was 100% at night and on standby when I woke up it would Stoll be 100%. Now it goes down to 90% in 6 hours without even being used!

Jackie Kay says:

I got this update last week (6/2/14) and it has made my phone incredibly slow. It takes forever to upload any app. Can I reverse the update or is there another way to speed my phone up?

I am having the same issues. It also freezes and some apps will not work at all. I got the update on 6/2/2014 and I am not a happy camper when I cannot even answer my phone or response to a text due to the home screen freezing. I rebooted and updated apps but it still freezes. HELP!!!!

thanks for sharing.........guess i won't be OTA updating my G Pro...........CM 11 Nightly here i come lol.

Jose Linares says:

I was able to update my Optimus G Pro to KitKat through a push update but now that I have updated my OS my phone is super slow. I may need to do a factory reset but I'll probably just get a new phone as its upgrade time again.

ChrisDan1188 says:

I've registered my lg g pro. It tells me im up to date. Any ideas? Why cant i update to 4.4?

klogue75 says:

I upgraded to kitkat and hate it. New keyboard bar to small. Battery life that was wonderful is now horrible. Delay when opening or using apps. Hope they fix this or let me go back to JB.


Anybody was able to update to Kitkat on a AT&T unlocked version phone? I still receive the Message "Phone is not registered". I have got confirmation from LG on my registration.

Mine is unlocked, I am currently on T-Mobile. I used to get the not registered message. Now it keeps telling me my device is up to date. Although i must admit that its thought to want to update since the majority of the people who have seem to be very displeased.

So are you on the KitKat version or JellyBean version? Even I saw many negative reviews regarding the KitKat update. My concern is more on any future updates that might be rolled out and will be useful.

fatclue_98 says:

Don't know what all the negative comments are about. This has been an excellent upgrade and my battery life is sick. Granted, I'm not a streaming fan but I do tether all day and have a few push mail accounts.

svrjn says:

I'd really like to know if anyone has been able to get the update without being on AT&T. I have an unlocked E980 and really wanting the update. :(

Thomas Gokey says:

yes i have the lg optimus g pro on straghttalk an just got the update however first few days everything was good now cant send or recieve pictur mess now kinda wish i didnt upgrade
