So you’re a T-Mobile customer sporting the LG G2, and you’re wondering when you will receive the Lollipop update for your device. You want that update so badly, that you can taste it. We are glad to tell you that you could have Lollipop updated to your T-Mobile branded LG G2 right now.
For now, Lollipop only comes to the T-Mobile LG G2 via LG’s Mobile Support Tool. Once that’s installed, a simple plug-and-check should push the update to your phone. OTA will start showing up on phones over the next few weeks until it’s on all devices by May 22nd.
The update is a 617MB affair, and you’ll need to have at least 50% of your battery left when attempting to apply it. After doing that, you’ll be on software version D80130b.
Full instructions on how to do install the Lollipop by LG’s Mobile Support Tool are available here. It’s not a very complicated process, but OTA updates are always more convenient for smartphone and tablet owners.

Google is reportedly working on bringing the most recent version of Lollipop to many of its devices, including flagship devices and mid-range phones. PhoneArena has learned that the OTA update for Android 5.1 now heading out, LG Nexus 4 owners now can download the OTA file for sideload (from LRX22G) from here.
The build number is LMY47O, and the update comes in at around 174MB on the Nexus 4. It brings to the devices bug fixes, performance improvements, and a handful of UI changes and new features. Learn about all things Android 5.1 from my earlier post.
For those who are on the latest version of Android 5.0.1 (LRX22C), updating is as simple as flashing the OTA file. For a full-on system refresh, which also means you will lose your data, a factory system image is available as well.

The over-the-air (OTA) update for LG’s 2014 flagship handset was confirmed by Verizon. The update will bring the G3’s version up to VS98523C. With it, the device will get support for the usual Lollipop features, like improved notification panel and lock screen notifications, Material Design, user profile modes, priority notification modes, new-style Lollipop navigation buttons and a ton of under the hood changes.
Just like a regular OTA, you need to be stock for this update to work. It shouldn’t delete anything, but back up important stuff just to be safe. Make sure your battery is comfortable charged and that you’re on a WiFi network to make sure things go according to plan.
