    I have AT&T activated on my H815 G4. I just spoke to an AT&T rep and she was on 6.0 via OTA. So, are OS upgrades Determined by the manufacturer or Google? I thought maybe having AT&T as my carrier I'd be updated too.

    Google distributes to LG who makes their changes then LG pushes to the carriers to make their changes, then once everyone is satisfied, it will slowly be pushed to the wild.

    The 815 update should come straight from LG so in theory you should see it sooner than a carrier device.

    She's a liar if she's on 6.0 OTA for the G4 :P

    If it's factory unlocked, then it's through the manufacturer. If it's carrier locked, then the carrier releases it. That simple.

    Geez. 6 is rolling out. I used to be with Nexus then unlocked g3 so have enjoyed fast updates for several years. Now with Bell on my G4 I'm still stuck at 5.1 version H81210e. Yes "e".

    That wasn't the G4 than cuz LG didn't release it yet, or was it a custom ROM and not from LG!

    AT&T is still on 5.1, unless it is a custom rom. Just chatted with AT&T and they have no info yet of when 6.0 will be coming, but the G4 will get it.

    Maybe it is. She said OTA update. She seemed tech-knowledgable so I suppose she could have installed a custom ROM. But why the hell would she mention the OTA?

    Faintest idea why. If it was OTA then I think most G4 would be getting it. I got mine the day the 2nd day they were out and no 6.0 OTA update at all.

    It's possible she's part of an internal testing group.

    Probably beta testing internally.

    OK, internal testing group... But then it must be flashed, and not OTA, right? Or maybe... Never mind, I guess they could take note of her IMEI and just send an update to HER device... But what I've seen from manufacturers is that it's always hard to do OTA and keep data than pass on an image and flash it new. If it's alpha, it's not OTA. If it's nearing completion, then it could be OTA... It also wouldn't make sense that AT&T is nearing completion of Android 6.0... My brain is starting to hurt! LOL!
