AT&T LG Optimus G Pro to Receive Official KitKat Starting Today

Released a little over a year ago, the LG Optimus G Pro is LG’s first entry into the fiercely competitive phablet market segment. Over the past few months, the device has been on a rather protracted journey towards its eventual Android 4.4 KitKat update. Back in late February, we got our hands on a leaked KitKat build for the AT&T variant of the device. And then approximately one month later, the Korean version of the device received its own official update to KitKat.

Of course, it’s expected for the regional device variants in LG’s home region to receive the update first, but the official KitKat update for the Korean model was exactly two months ago. Luckily, the KitKat rollout has now gotten underway for the AT&T variant of the device.

Today’s update comes in at firmware build E98020g (baseband APQ8064/MDM9x15M), and as expected, it packs Android 4.4.2 and a few other goodies. In addition to the expected KitKat-related UI and immersion mode tweaks, AT&T says that today’s update also brings “enhanced processing speed,” stronger security, and battery performance improvements.

The 700+ MB update will begin rolling out today via OTA update. Unfortunately, the firmware has not yet been captured and mirrored, but keep your eyes on these two threads for a mirror. It’s unfortunate that it has taken nearly seven months for this update to reach consumer devices. But as we said earlier today for Sony’s updates, it’s better late than never.

Glimpse Notifications by XDA Senior Member xrad offers just that. You'd normally have to turn your screen on manually to see your notifications. Instead, Glimpse Notifications will do it for you when a notification comes in. That doesn't mean...
