    Post When will LG G2 (T-Mobile USA) get Android 4.4??

    Does anyone know when the LG G2 (T-Mobile) will get a taste of Android 4.4?

    Greetings! I haven't heard any dates on the release of KitKat for the G2...I'm hopeful a release will happen soon because of LG making the Nexus 5. IMO I believe Google made it clear to LG that X amount of weeks must go by after releasing Nexus 5 so hype can be high for their device...My gut tells me it should come either a week before Christmas or just after beginning of the New Year. LG gains much publicity from Google's Nexus 5, so I see a tradeoff on the LG G2 getting a delay on KitKat. But, when it does, NOTHING will come close to this device. It will nail the door closed on all other competition!

    Hope so too. Would be nice to get a break of that Kit Kat bar.

    Probably next year...
    Doesn't really matter to me I love how my G2 is not a fan of lg ui so I used apex launcher with tablet UI and rooted it to have auto hide soft keys to fully enjoy (well almost...I like my status bar) that 5.2 screen. To me kitkat would seem like a minor upgrade but still happy to get it

    Personally, I hope I can turn it down. I prefer to keep the software that comes on a phone as updates always slow them down, regardless of how it's supposed to improve things. Unless the software is groundbreaking and new, there's no need. It looks like the N7 is having a few issues with the new update, and it's a Nexus!

    LG will probably keep a similar UI for the phone. Android 4.4 brings lots of system and performance updates.

    Ohhhh...Performance updates like the keyboard lag and freezing camera on my Nexus 7 (2013)? I almost forgot to mention it barely connects to WiFi even though I'm sitting 5' from my router. Yeah, I finally got the update last night...

    We'll see when T-Mobile pushes the upgrade, even if LG releases it on March or so.

    I'm thinking more of a may/june release. Especially with how slow Verizon is with updates. I really just want to use Google Wallet AND have wifi calling. Is that too much to ask for??

    I know I have the T-Mobile version. I'm just stating how slow Verizon is with updates. And they're the biggest US carrier. So if they don't have it anytime soon, I'm not expecting it on T-Mobile anytime soon.

    I saw the news on AC today also...I'll wait for the OTA; the manual download, with the link from LG, is 1.5GB

    1.5gb is huge. I wonder what LG is doing here? I dont ever remember an update being so large on any previous phone i've had.

    It's basically the factory image. So it's going to be huge.

    I have been trying to update for an hour but the stupid LG PC utility that is requires an update, even though I just got it from THEIR website, will not update!

    So, if anyone knows of another way to put the 1.5 gb file that downloaded faster than the 300mb LG Suite on to my phone please share...

    Anyone else not having luck getting the PC Suite to recognize there's an update?

    I just keep getting:

    Latest version is already installed.
    Latest version: D80110G

    I've tried rebooting both my PC and phone, and still haven't gotten anything. Is this a staggered release?

    Use the upgrade tool on this thread!
    T-Mobile Kit Kat is here! - xda-developers
    Takes longer to install, because it downloads from LG, than to upgrade the phone. Mine took 15 min start to finish...

    Fixed group messaging!

    Or it could be because G2 skipped 4.3 and went directly to 4.4.2

    I'll try the PC Suite tomorrow and see what it says.
