[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.

CloudPlayer: DIY HiFi Music Streaming Solution

In our Helpful Guide to Music Streaming Services, we mentioned several different services that offer ways to stream catalogs of music directly to your device. While each service has their benefits and drawbacks, the common theme among them is to give you access to a vast library of music without the need to store your own, and charge you a monthly fee for the privilege. But what if you already had access to your own catalog of music? Sure, there...
