KitKat Arrives on Canadian LG G2 D803, Available as Full KDZ Update

rogersg2

You may recall that late last month the AT&T and T-Mobile variants of LG’s flagship G2 were starting to receive their official updates to Android 4.4.2 KitKat. While the former arrived in the form of an incremental OTA update, the latter was disseminated as a 1.5 GB full KDZ firmware package. Luckily, we also covered how to create a flashable Zip from the aforementioned KDZ.

Now the Android 4.4.2 KitKat update has appeared for Canadian carrier variants of the LG G2 D803. And as was the case with the T-Mobile update, it comes as a full KDZ update.

This update brings all the same goodies that we come to expect from LG’s take on 4.4.2. This includes UI refinements, improved battery life, faster perf. . . READ ON »

US Carrier Forums Added for the Galaxy S 5 and LG G2

XDA Forums for the LG G Watch, Samsung Gear Live, and Asus Padfone X

There comes a time in every popular flagship device’s life when it grows up, finds an attractive carrier, and it makes many carrier-branded babies… Oh wait, I’m sorry. This is XDA-Developers, not Animal Planet. In any case, the story’s essentially the same, but with a few minor modifications.

Samsung recently unveiled its next generation flagship at Unpacked 5 in Barcelona just under one month ago. And even though the Samsung Galaxy S 5 has thus far seen mixed sentiment from consumers, the as yet unreleased device earned a well deserved place in our forums.

The LG G2, on the other hand, was released unto the world in the middle of last year. The powerhouse of a device featur. . . READ ON »

How to Make Flashable Zip File from Android 4.4.2 KDZ File for the LG G2

LG-G2-Android-4.4-KitKat-update

Not too long ago, we covered Android 4.4.2 KitKat making its way to the LG G2—or at least to the T-Mobile variant. Before it was available as an OTA, it came as a massive 1.5 GB KDZ file, the file type LG uses for their ROMs, much like Sony Xperia’s FTF and Motorola’s SBF files.

One of the disadvantages with receiving an update this way is that there is only one way to install such ROM files. And in LG’s case, that’s with the LG Mobile Support Tool. So if you’re unable to install the KitKat update using the aforementioned method, or you’d rather install the update another way, such as with the more flexible method of flashing the ROM through a custom recovery, XDA Senior Me. . .

Do More with the Bugged Xposed Framework on Your LG G2 KitKat with Source Code Fragment Compilation

g2kk

LG G2 owners running the latest KitKat update will no doubt have discovered that the awesome Xposed Framework doesn’t quite work as well as it should be. If you’re lucky enough to have a somewhat functioning framework, you already realized that the majority of Xposed modules do not work, with only a select few working. With the Android experience becoming increasingly dependent on the Xposed Framework and the vast wealth of modules, this bug is certainly a bummer.

Well, XDA Recognized Developer garyd9 has decided that enough is enough, and wants to get going figuring out any possible work-around to the limitations imposed by this issue. Targeted more towards the developers of Xposed modules for the LG . . . READ ON »

KitKat Arrives on the T-Mobile LG G2, Comes as a 1.5 GB Full KDZ Update

Screenshot_2014-02-27-06-47-41

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  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 installe. . .

AT&T LG G2 Also Receives Android 4.4.2 Update, OTA Captured!

uploadfromtaptalk1393177106214

Earlier today, we saw the AT&T HTC One receive the official Android 4.4.2 KitKat goods via an incremental OTA update. This update, which came in the form a staged rollout, started making its way to consumer devices early in the morning. Thankfully, a couple of XDA community members who were lucky enough to receive the OTA mirrored the update for everyone’s enjoyment. Now, AT&T has started updating its variant of the LG G2 to KitKat as well. And just like before, the community has stepped up and shared the OTA for your side-loading pleasure.

According to AT&T’s release post, the update brings several key features including UI refinements, improved battery life, and 17% faster perfor. . . READ ON »

LG G Flex’s “Split View” Ported to LG G2

LGGFSV

We all should be pretty familiar with split screen functionality on our mobile devices. We’ve seen it become a defining feature of the Samsung Galaxy Note series with “Multi-Window,” and Microsoft has integrated the same function into their desktop/tablet operating systems Windows RT and 8/8.1. In fact, quite recently, we saw the LG G Flex join the list with their “Split View” feature. And as expected of the XDA community, it’s been ported to the LG G2.

Ported by XDA Recognized Developer bigfau, Split View on the LG G2 seems to be stable and running without any major issues that interfere with the functionality. There are however, a few compatibility problems with c. . . READ ON »

Korean LG G2 Receiving KitKat before New Year, France in Late January, Canada by Late Q1 2014

kitkat

Up until very recently, we haven’t heard very much about LG’s planned upgrade path for its current device lineup—well, aside from an erroneous Facebook message, that is. But given that the Optimus G and LG G2 feature remarkably similar hardware to the LG-built Nexus 4 and Nexus 5, respectively, it’s not unreasonable to assume that the updates are likely in the works.

Now, LG has revealed on its official blog that the G2 will receive KitKat by the year’s end in its home market of Korea. Aside from the impending Korean release, we already know that G2 devices in certain regions are going to enjoy the KitKat goods in due time. So far, French carrier SFR has stated on its blog that they a. . . READ ON »
