T-Mobile Lists and then Pulls Mention of KitKat Update for the LG G Flex
Over the course of the last month, several carrier-branded variants of the LG G Flex have received their official updates to Android 4.4.2 KitKat. Here in the US, this started with the AT&T variant, and later continued with the Sprint model.
About one week after Sprint’s update and three weeks after AT&T’s update, T-Mobile updated its software update support page for the G Flex to state that its variant will finally begin receiving its official KitKat update. But then as quickly as update first hit T-Mobile Update Support Page, information regarding the new build was replaced with the text shown in the screenshot to your right.
First noticed by the kind folks over at AndroidPolice, the incoming software update was set to come in at software version D95920d. Not only was it going to bring an update to KitKat, but it was also slated to bring the updated Knock Code functionality that we saw in the other two G Flex KitKat updates.
Given the prompt removal from the support pages, it’s highly likely that T-Mobile caught a last minute bug as it was getting ready for widespread release. Because of this, it’s now unfortunately unclear as to whether this particular D95920d build will ever end up rolling out, or if we will be waiting for another build.
Share your conspiracy theories down in the comments below, and then keep F5ing both the T-Mobile Update Support Page and the KitKat update discussion thread to keep up to date on the update’s status. Hopefully good news will soon come to T-Mobile G Flex users.
