T-Mobile LG G2 KitKat update now rolling out OTA

Update now avalable over the air for those who didn't mess with the PC utility

T-Mobile's LG G2 already had a taste of KitKat a few days ago when the update came available through LG's PC utility, and now it's heading out over the air to everyone. Support pages from T-Mobile indicate that today is the day the official Android 4.4.2 update is rolling out to devices, bringing all of the latest KitKat features, along with fixes to auto brightness and "user experience improvements."

The documents indicate that the software — version D80120a — will be available for those who check manually starting today, and that users will start being prompted to install from March 6th to the 25th. Decide to hold off on installing manually and are now seeing the update over the air? Let other folks know in the comments.

  • First.... But who cares.... Where is The note 3's update! Please! Posted via Android Central App
  • +1!!!
  • +1 and then some Posted via Android Central App
  • Samsung is in the same boat as iPhone, you seen a commercial that told you the note 3 was the best so you bought it. The note 3 shouldn't get the update, it should be bricked. Let the real phones get kitkat first :)
  • I would imagine it being pushed out today as well. I'm excited! Posted via Android Central App
  • Why do you imagine? Posted via Android Central App
  • Source code released last Friday for the Note 3 for T-Mobile. History shows that there is a 2-3 day period in between the posting of the source and the roll out of OTA's.
    If not today, I'd say Wednesday by the latest. Posted via Android Central App
  • Please.... I am checkin like a Crack head checks da corner for the dealer Posted via Android Central App

  • You're judging a guy....
  • I got the 4.4 update on my HTC One, but unless u are running pure android on your device, the update doesn't have the impact u think. Don't get too exited about it. Posted via Android Central App
  • Verizon hasn't gotten it yet, right? I have a friend on Verizon who has a G2 and wants 4.4.2...
  • Nope not yet. Got a vzw g2 here.
  • I also have a Verizon G2. With any luck we'll get the update sometime like September.
  • Verizon was doing so well too with kit kat updates for the Moto X and htc one. Posted via Android Central App
  • Why does Verizon like to leave us out in the cold? I just want some KitKat to nibble on. Please Verizon? Posted via Android Central App
  • Vzw released today, but only the black models got it, no love for the white ones. Heard this was an issue with the GSM carriers too.
  • It's a race for last to update, Verizon or Sprint.
    My money is on Verizon being last. Posted via Android Central App
  • probably Sprint because of Spark. CM 11 couldn't even get LTE for the longest time
  • CM 11 is irrelevant.
  • relevant to ME!!! not srs But maybe LG might encounter the same problems CM did?
  • Still waiting for the update on my T-mobile LG G2 here in Fla.
  • Any word on other devices on TMo getting it?

  • Yes STFU Posted from my Galaxy Note 3 on Tmobile via Android Central App
  • Says the guy who won't take that very same advice when it's quite clear he's not wanted. All your comments being rated negatively is a pretty good indication.
  • Wow and I thought this was a friendly community I guess the puppet master and 12 years a slave ass nigha disagree ~My $0.02~

  • Not necessarily, Sprint hasn't gotten their G2 updated yet. Posted via Android Central App
  • Aww look at those poor unlucky note 3 owners that don't have kitkat yet. I don't see the big fuss. It's not like you guys will notice a huge difference.

  • I'm annoyed that they feel the need hijack the comments section of this article and make it about the N3.
    Samsung sucks at updates, get over it.
    Surprised the S4 was updated
  • Because a lot of people who buy Samsung think there Android royalty and should always be first. Not all of them just some. Lol
  • I'm annoyed that you feel the need to hijack the comment section here always. It's sad to see your trolling comments all over the place. Go back to your Internet get off Google Plus and here Posted from my Galaxy Note 3 on Tmobile via Android Central App
  • 1. You obviously don't know what the Internet is. There is no "your" and "my" Internet. It's just "the Internet".
    2. I'm annoyed you say other people are "trolling", as if you don't do it on a daily basis yourself.
    3. I'm annoyed that you feel a few comments from one person (which, isn't that the point of comments on an article- to engender discussion?) constitutes as "hijacking the comments section". You clearly have no clue what these words mean. What an idiot.
  • I'm not even on google+ lol
  • I have had it for sometime. Blind hate is stupid.
  • Lies!!!!!
  • Aww get a real phone! Hater... Don't pee on my parade... Wouldn't do you like that... Wait I just did. Yes I am In My feelings Posted via Android Central App
  • When is KitKat coming to the LG L5ii ?? Posted via Android Central App
  • Anybody that did the update can you check if Google wallet works with tap and pay feature active? Posted via Android Central App
  • It does not but there is a fix on xda for rooted phones.
  • Will the OTA work if your rooted but still have stock rom?
  • Still waiting here in Connecticut, why are all of the comments in this post about phones other than the T-Mobile Lg G2? Posted via Android Central App
  • Same here in CT, still 4.2.2. And I have no clue why people are complaining about other phones here. Glad I stitched from VZW to TMo. Kind of nice getting an update (I hope). Posted via Android Central App
  • I hope so too, someone just pointed out that maybe the white phones haven't got it yet for some odd reason, is yours white? Seems strange,but mine is white and still no update Posted via Android Central App
  • I noticed the battery life isn't like it was before the update. Posted via Android Central App
  • Better or worse, I still have yet to get it.... Posted via Android Central App
  • I updated on Friday with the mobile support tool. Battery life seems the same as before but the phone is much faster and smoother.
  • I updated through the pc but It seems like the battery life isn't as good as before which sucks. Posted via Android Central App
  • Ugh still saying up to date...wth. .. Posted via Android Central App
  • Tried the PC update on two different machines, and now I'm trying for the OTA, and still nothing. I know I could do the KDZ, but I'm lazy and just want the other options to work right.
  • +1 Posted via Android Central App
  • Haha funny stuff fuck you all
    T-Mobile GS4 4.3
  • Just upgraded myself. Seems great too! I love this phone! Posted via Android Central App
  • Did it work ota? I Still have nothing lol Posted via Android Central App
  • Do you have a white version Greek? I read a couple reports of "My significant others' black version got the update, but so far nothing on my white!" I have a white version and no update for me either :(
  • Yes it actually is white Lol, not sure why that would make a difference but anything's worth a shot now lol Posted via Android Central App
  • Still waiting...
  • Yeah, I'm still waiting too.
  • I'm still waiting. I'm guessing the white version matters.
  • Finally got the update last weekend.
    I have the black version of the phone.
  • What does it matter if it is black or whitte?
  • It matters. The white models cant even get the update through the update tool, neither LG's or the VZW tool. Same thing happened on ATT and T-Mobile.
