[OTA Captured] Sprint LG G2 Receives Android 4.4.2-Based ZVC Update, Open Source Files Released

Right at the tail end of 2013, the Korean version of the LG G2 started receiving its official OTA update to Android 4.4 KitKat. After that, we knew it was only a matter of time before the update would make its way to carrier-branded variants of the device. About two months later, we saw the update appear on the AT&T version of the G2, which was promptly followed by the T-Mobile variant. Then five days ago, the update appeared on various Canadian carriers. Now, the update has arrived for the Sprint LG G2.

The OTA comes in the form of a 618 MB incremental update from firmware version ZVA to ZVC—though Sprint decided to “rename” the update to ZVB in its provided literature. Aside from upping the Android version update to 4.4.2, the ZVC update also fixes the Next Radio audio issue.

So when can you expect the update on your device? Well, it’s currently being delivered as a staged OTA rollout, which means that your device may not be in the initial wave. However, XDA Forum Member James7Bond007 was lucky enough to capture the OTA download link direct from Google for your ADB sideloading pleasure. Head over to the Sprint LG G2 KitKat update discussion thread to share your experiences with the update.

Finally, LG also updated its Open Source Code Distribution Page for the Sprint LG G2 to include the GPL-mandated kernel source code files for the ZVC update. So if you’re a kernel or ROM developer looking to develop KitKat-based goodies for the device, today is a good day.

Device Review: No.1 X1 Rugged Smartphone

We are almost at the end of Q2 for 2015, and we have seen most of the flagship phones for the year already. While flagship phones usually offer bleeding-edge specs and are the most sought after phones, there is a huge market for non-flagship phones. Some offer value, others offer unique differentiating features. Today, we are going to look at the X1 phone by a Chinese company named N0.1. The company promises a truly rugged IP68 Certified phone. The device has a Quad...

When a Friend or Family Member Asks for a Phone Recommendation, What Do You Tell Them?

The majority of us here at XDA would consider ourselves power users and Android enthusiasts. Thus, when a friend or family member has a question about which phone they should get, they usually come to us. However, this is where we all differ. While some will atomically recommend the Nexus line, others in the community will suggest an offering from Samsung or LG. When a friend or family member asks you for a phone recommendation, what do you say?
