    I think the update is close. I check this site daily and today for the first time the KK source code was uploaded.

    Quite a few people have reported getting the update through the LG site, and through Verizon software assistant.

    Just wanted to say that I wasn't getting it OTA, but I did like Mike770 and 0331 stated and connected my phone to my computer. It installed the Software Upgrade Assistant, and indeed found 4.4.2.

    Screenshots from the computer and the phone:

    Where is the link to the Verizon "LG" software upgrade assistant?

    It's not a link. When you plug the phone in. It should first ask if you want to install the software before it switches over the MTP or whatever other protocol you've selected as default.

    It doesn't, never did, and there is no sign of anything Verizon related on my computer even though I can browse the phones files in win explorer.
    win 7 by the way.

    OK, then go into settings and see what you have selected for PC connection. Turn off any defaults. Then when plugged in open windows file explorer and look for the available drives right after plug in. I think it's Verizon F. Double click and check inside. Software should be there.

    just internal storage there, nothing else.

    edit: Somehow I forced autoplay to see it and now it is updating.

    Currently downloading KitKat through Verizon Software Upgrade Assistant... connected to my Windows 8 laptop with the MTP connection method and USB Debugging enabled. Not sure if I had USB Debugging enabled before or if it enabled itself. For me, no drives mount but it did ask me what I wanted to do with "E:" drive "Verizon". Nothing shows in Windows Explorer.

    You should black out your phone number in the fourth pic.

    I can't get my phone to show in the device list in the software upgrade assistant. My phone connects to my laptop, I select to run the software assistant and it opens and says it's checking device but when it finishes checking there's no phone in the list and the upgrade button is grayed out. Running Windows 8.1, phone not rooted

    Someone over at XDA had a similar problem and resolved it by removing his device from Android Device Manager, so if you use it, I'd suggest removing it from there and trying again.

    Tried that trick myself. Didn't work for me. Surely this has nothing to do with black vs white models. Like the AT&T thing where the IMEI numbers were released for the black phones and not the white ones. I have the white one fwiw. My phone, when connected via USB says: Connected as an installer and has the Ethernet connection checked.

    I've tried removing the device, didn't help, I've tried all the different usb modes, restarted my phone and my laptop, it just won't work. Idk if the black vs white phone is a possible issue, but mine is white as well.

    I've tried dozens of times, it keeps going through checking device info, the progress bar goes to full then it starts over, does this 3 times every time, then nothing. The only option is to close, disconnect, reconnect, and try again. Blah

    Same here. I see the Verizon software installer and when I click the .exe nothing happens. Very weird.

    Might be a dumb question, as my brain isn't functioning properly today it seems, but do you need to be unrooted on stock in order for this update software to see your phone? Right now I'm stock rooted and it says I have an upgrade so I click download upgrade now and it launches the assistant but it doesn't see my phone at all. I'm assuming it's because I'm rooted but I'm here for assurance ... any help appreciated.

    For all the folks who have successfully update: do you have the white or black model?

    I may try firing up my old laptop running Vista later and see if that works.

    What windows os are you running? For those wondering I have the black phone. When I attempted to download the Verizon upgrade assistant on my windows 8 PC it started to load and at the end aborted due to a corrupt image. Windows 8 blows, I'm sure any os but 8 will do the trick.

    Should work you will only lose root, as long as you have not downloaded clockwork or twrp as your recovery.
