Good news for AT&T subscribers who own an LG Optimus G as it seems that the Android 4.1.2 Jelly Bean update started rolling out since yesterday.
While a software update is always welcomed, curiously the carrier hasn’t made any previous announcement about the matter. In March, the Sprint version of the LG Optimus G got the Android 4.1 Jelly Bean update, being leveled up from the old Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich. Now, after a long wait, it’s time for the AT&T subscribers to receive the Jelly Bean treatment.
As I said, the firmware upgrade has not been officially announced, but it looks like some AT&T Forums users have already received the Android 4.1.2 Jelly Bean update for their handsets. According to some sources, the update was supposed to be rolled out starting today, April 4. Nevertheless, some of the AT&T users have already received since yesterday. Anyway, today the Android 4.1.2 should start spreading to more and more AT&T Optimus G users.
As far as we know, the update file is around 340 MB in size, which means that it could take a while to be downloaded in installed, and you need to find a god Wi-Fi connection. Also, make sure that your LG Optimus G is at least half charged before beginning the process.
Eve though, Android 4.1.2 Jelly Bean is not the latest iteration of Android, it will still be a pretty high jump from Android ICS, as it brings new features and lots of improvements such as Project Butter, rich notifications, Google Now, and probably some improvements coming from the mobile operator itself, of course.
We expect AT&T to confirm the Android 4.1.2 Jelly Bean any minute now. However, if you happen to own an LG Optimus G, it doesn’t hurt to check for the update from time to time. Do tell us if you’ve got it.
