When the first reports of the M9 overheating came to light, many forum users began a collective joke-round calling the phone a popcorn machine, a grill, and other unoriginal remarks that we’ve seen with every device that presents sign of overheating, from gaming consoles to graphics cards.

KitKat Arrives on the T-Mobile LG G2, Comes as a 1.5 GB Full KDZ Update
We are now four months past the unveiling of Android 4.4 KitKat. And over the course of the last month or two, we’ve seen more than a few devices receive official updates to Google’s latest and greatest. Now thanks to XDA Senior Member Howie Dub, we’ve learned that the T-Mobile LG G2 is one of the latest devices to receive the KitKat goods.
The update is unfortunately not available via OTA update. Rather, it’s delivered via a 1.5 GB KDZ file that must be installed with the LG Mobile Support Tool. Coming in at software version D80120a, the update bumps users up to Android 4.4.2 and Linux kernel 3.4.0. Installing this update will remove your custom recovery (if you have one installed), but that’s probably a tiny sacrifice to make in order to get in on the official KitKat goods.
Make your way over to the T-Mobile 4.4.2 update discussion thread to learn more and update your device.
