    Unfortunately there's nothing on listed on the linked LG site OpenSource Code Distribution for Verizon's VS985.

    LG G3 is likely a few months from the M update.

    If history is any indication, it will be some bizarre rollout starting in some tiny country and when people here in the US start hearing about it, there will be a frenzy for at least another 2 months. Finally it will hit the G3 here and by that time, everyone will be thinking about Android N.

    Really, it does have some nice added features, but I wouldn't get too excited. This is now a barely supported old phone by LG standards. Which is why I have gone to a custom ROM. If you are going to use a device this old, it is the only way forward. This is the last update and LG will wash its hands of the phone forever. And LG knows that no one is really watching what they do about the G3 or cares at this point.

    If you are really in need of factory support with your phone, I suggest this is the point you think about moving on to a new device.

    MM for the G3 has been released in Poland. Only a matter of time before it trickles down to everyone else. Or if you don't like waiting, you should be able to download it soon and flash it yourself.

    The G3 got lollipop faster than almost every other phone. Now it looks to be one of the first to get marshmallow even though it is a 2 year old phone. You are a fool.

    I don't understand why people are so desperate for marshmallow on the G3. Lollipop is working great and I would not mind waiting even 2 more months for it. The G3 is already an old phone and we are lucky that we will still receive an OS upgrade.

    The Poland users on the G3 can only able to download the upgrade using the PC. No OTA download yet.

    I want the memory merge option. Everything else is fluff.

    I paid $285 brand new T-Mobile version. I love the phone, got the phone since November of last year. It is not worthless, is just that by Android standards, when a phone hit almost two years, the carrier and the phone maker does not release any more OS upgrades. We are lucky that at least we will get marshmallow.

    Hope it won't be worthless like Android 5.0.1. After my LG G3 updated to 5.0.1 around 10 months, a day my phone kept connecting and disconnecting wifi connection frequently. I searched on many forums and met many situation like me, not only with LG G3, but also many models use Android 5.0.1 like Samsung Galaxy S5, Note 4.... Android 5.0.1 is so bad, it is slow, quickly run out of battery.
    After I rollback to Android 4.4, my phone work perfectly like before.

    I have 5.0.1 as well and yes the battery may drain a little quickly, but is still faster and the WiFi working without issues. The only thing I hope they really need to fix is the over heating when is used for a long time. But the over heating only happens when I have the speaker phone on in a call and surfing the web too.

    It will come to VZW G3 in 6 months or so. LG gets it in a few months then 2-3 months for VZW to release it.

    I flashed MM (6.0) Stock to my LG G3 D855 when it was released a few days ago and so far I have to say it's been an improvement. Battery life is incredible, much better than LP (5.0) and Google Now on Tap is great. It's worth the upgrade. Bar the leather back and manual camera, it feels like I pretty much have a G4.

    I think the G3, as well as other phones from 2014, will have a longer lifespan than the typical 2 year barrier given the technology and updates they currently have.

    Yeah, I hope so. I can understand companies wanting to replicate Apple's success with a high turnover on must-have devices bringing in more money but they monopolise their particular segment of the market.

    The Android market segment is saturated with very similar devices from a lot of different manufacturers. It's like a car. If I buy one that is buggy, poorly maintained and feels like an antique in just two years then I'm not going to invest in that make again. If it's still running like a dream in 2 years and the company has a new model out then I'm more likely to consider purchasing from them again.

    I've recently become a bit of a fan boy for Xiaomi devices. I have their wristband and their wireless scales. Really inexpensive but actually made to (in my opinion) a really high quality standard. The packaging is beautiful in its simplicity and despite a bit of broken English in the instructions, they're incredible value for money.

    I think their phones look really smart too, the only thing that puts me off and will probably keep me with LG is the fact they're still on KK. I might eye one up in the future though if I can custom rom it.

    I have the T-Mobile version of the G3. My battery life is not really an issue for me but if 6.0 marshmallow improved battery life and performance will be an amazing upgrade. I agreed with you that also we will not see an OTA upgrade until February or March.

    You can flash the official firmware using the LG tool, a PC and the KDZ file from XDA (I can't post URLs from my account yet so just Google XDA LG G3 Marshmallow).

    My phone is no longer rooted but I do have a custom recovery (TWRP) which allows me to flash without a PC which is easier, but both methods will void your warranties and could brick your phone if you don't know what you're doing.

    I also flashed the KDZ file on my UK D855 - very impressed. I haven't come across any problems and the long standing Bluetooth music stutter problem that was introduced by Lollipop appears to be fixed, or at least greatly reduced.
