AT&T has announced that the LG G Flex device will get later today the official OTA Update to Android 4.4.2 KitKat. Keep an eye on your G Flex as the update files should reach your device starting today.
The Android 4.4.2 KitKat for LG G Flex should be a major one since it measures somewhere around 690MB, so you should get all the KitKat goodies and you will then be able to forget the Jelly Bean OS once and for all. KitKat brings a newly designed Navigation and Status bar, improvements for a better battery life and a smoother and faster user interface.
The new full-screen mode that is brought by Android 4.4 will get rid of the status bar when launching various apps and games. The status bar can be shown by swiping down the screen, but you will notice that it is transparent and after a few seconds it will disappear and you can resume play.
Check the LG G Flex notification bar for new alerts on the availability of Android 4.4 KitKat OTA Update files. When the update is available you simply need to click it and then download the files. During the installation your G Flex device will reboot. Make sure to use a Wi-Fi connection, so that you won’t go over your data plan.
You can also check manually for new Android update by going to Settings, then General Tab, open About Phone, go to Software Update. Here you can check for new updates.
Keep in mind that Android 4.4 KitKat updates and any other similar files that are released officially will arrive in phases, so you shouldn’t worry in case your phone doesn’t receive the OTA today.
Users with LG G Flex phones running custom ROMs will not receive the OTA Update, which means that in order to be able to update the phone, then you will be forced to restore it to a stock Android OS.
