The LG Lucid 4G has just received what looks like its first software update from Verizon Wireless since it arrived in stores earlier this week. Unfortunately the update isn’t Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich.

This update doesn’t brings us many enhancements, but only the bug fixed: the Enhanced Caller Name ID application has been disabled. The update is available today if you manually check for it.

The update should reach your LG Lucid 4G over-the-air at which point the phone will notify you to download and install it. If you want to apply it right now, just go to Settings > About phone > System updates and manually check if the update is available for you.

For the LG Lucid 4G, there are 2 convenient ways to download the software upgrade:

Here are a few facts to keep in mind:

  • It will take you approximately 5-10 minutes to download the software, depending on network conditions.
  • Once you download the software, the next step is to install it onto the device. Installation should take up to 5-7 minutes additional. Keep in mind that during the installation you will be unable to make or receive calls, including emergency calls.

Note: The size for this software upgrade is 9.5MB

Over The Air (OTA) Software

The two types of OTA software upgrades:

  1. OTA User Initiated – Follow these instructions if you would like to manually search for an upgrade on your LG Lucid 4G.
  2. OTA Server Initiated – Follow these instructions if you receive a notice on your LG Lucid 4G indicating that there is a software upgrade available

1. OTA User Initiated:

This process allows a user to navigate through the device options to seek updates.

  1. From the Home screen, tap the Menu Key > Settings > About phone > Software updates > Check for Updates.
  2. If your LG Lucid 4G finds a new software update, tap begin downloading in the background. When complete, a screen will appear advising you that the new version of software is ready to be installed. Tap Apply Update.
  3. The LG Lucid 4G will power down and power back on. A screen will appear stating that the installation has been completed. Tap OK.

2. OTA Server Initiated:

  1. Once a new software version is available for your LG Lucid 4G, it will begin downloading in the background. When the download is complete, you will be notified that it is ready to be installed. Tap Apply Update.
  2. The LG Lucid 4G will power down and power back on. A screen will appear stating that the installation has been completed. Tap OK.
  3. To check your software version, go to Home screen > Menu > Settings > About phone.

If the system update fails to install, you will get an error screen. However, this only means the software did not install properly. Remove and re-insert the battery and power the device back on. The LG Lucid 4G will power back on with original software and will prompt you once again to install the system update.
