    I got a notification of an update just a few minutes ago and tried to download it but got the "Server unavailable at this time" error. Maybe I had a weak signal. Does anyone know what the update is? 4.2.2 or the Essentials pack that the International version got? Thanks.

    Unfortunately, I'm getting the message that I'm up to date and can't check for another 12 hours 49 minutes, whatever that means. I tapped on the "check for updates" last night and got a message that my phone had not been set up or something, so I guess I'll see what tomorrow brings.

    I bought mine about 2 weeks ago and it came with those features, (eye recognition and dual camera), so does that mean i already have this update? I just tried to update and the server timed out.

    I have software version : E98010g, Build : JZO54K, kernal: 3.4.0

    I got the update. Build Number is JZO54K with software version E980k. I also already had the eye recognition and cameras. Other than a battery manager and data manager app shortcuts in the apps page, both of which just open their respective setting page, I haven't noticed any other differences.

    Can still root after the update (looking at you, Verizon).

    RE: Eye Recognition...

    I've never seen anything about it. But I don't watch a lot of video or anything so I wouldn't know for sure.

    We didnt have the Smart video feature and I think it may be something different with the dual camera...I guess! I know for sure I didnt have the Smart Video setting before.

    There's an article up on it now.

    LG Optimus G Pro 'Value Pack' now available via OTA update | Android Central


    Features (cribbed from the article):

    New Tools:

    - Smart Video intelligently recognizes the position of a user's eyes, automatically pausing the video when the user looks away and then restarting it once they resume active viewing.
    - Dual Camera, an extension of the Dual Recording feature, lets users simultaneously capture photos of the subject and the shooter using both the front and back cameras for a picture-in-picture composition, so both sides of an experience are snapped and saved.
    - Pause & Resume Recording allows user to pause video in record mode and then restart the recording to create one continuous video file.


    Enhanced Quick Remote Function:

    - Magic Remote Pad is designed to work with LG Smart TVs released in 2012 and after, allowing for smoother, more intuitive navigation.
    - Text Keypad transforms LG Optimus G Pro into a convenient input device for LG Smart TVs.


    New and improved communication and notification functions:
    - The HomeButton LED now also gives users the ability to customize alerts as well as the LED color of notifications from their favorite contacts.
    - Additionally, users can now select from 800 color emoticons when texting or emailing.


    And, bizarrely enough, setting my clock ahead two days is allowing me to check for the update. o_O It's still waiting to check so time will tell if it's actually available to me yet.

    Many thanks, ternell99, for pointing me to that little trick.

    Update: AT&T's servers are kicking back a message that my phone is not registered. I'll have to call support, I guess. *sigh*.

    Oh, well.

    You can't install a stock ota with rooted recovery. Especially on samsung devices, the ota will check to see if you are rooted and will only flash if your device status is "normal".

    On the phone with AT&T now, who actually called LG to find out why my phone is receiving a "Your phone is not registered yet." message.

    The rep tried to convince me that I actually already have the update, but my version number is E98010g. My assumption is that the value pack is in E98010k, correct? That's what the screenshot on the article shows.

    Update: AT&T of course suggested a factory reset, which I dutifully did, same message. Contacting LG now. (sigh)

    Update to the update: LG tells me that the "your phone is not registered yet" is a normal message, to be expected when the server is overloaded, and if I have not received the update in a week I can call them back. So, now for a question...

    Is anyone seeing the message I have attached at all?

    Will an AT&T unlocked LG Optimus G Pro with a Straight Talk sim card receive this update?

    We have a feature that keeps the phone on after the screen time has expired. If the front camera sees you still looking at the screen past the time it will keep the phone on. It has nothing to do with pauseing video.

    I have the same issue of, "phone not yet registered." AT&T said they haven't heard of any issues like this. Rep told me that phone could be exchanged since it is still in warranty. I have always had the issue since I have had the phone, but figured it would "resolve" itself after awhile...

    Going to try to call AT&T again, as it would seem to be on there end of things.

    Well, I'm rooted so I won't be getting it. It was worth it to get rid of the qslide bar though.

    Let me know how it turns out.

    I've emailed our corporate account manager asking for some direction (mine is a Premier account, not a Corporate/Store one, so the support model is a little different).
