LG G2 Android 4.4.2 KitKat Update Now Available at Verizon

Android 4.4.2 Verizon LG G2

The LG G2 Android 4.4.2 KitKat update is now being pushed to the Verizon variant of the device, but it’s not yet available for download over-the-air.

According to Droid Life, you will be able to update your Verizon LG G2 to Android 4.4.2 KitKat using Verizon’s Software Update Assistant. If you happen to own a Mac we have sad news for you as the tool is only compatible with Windows machines.

The process of grabbing the LG G2 Android 4.4.2 update through Verizon Software Update Assistant is pretty simple. You need to grab the USB cable, plug in your LG G2 and wait for a drive called Verizon Mobile to appear (picture below). Locate the SWUpgradeLauncher app in the respective folder, double click it, then follow the on-screen instructions.

It’s also worth noting that the Android 4.4.2 update for LG G2 is labeled VS98024A and has a weight of 2 GB, so it might take a while until it’s downloaded.

For the time being there’s no mention on when the VS98024A for Verizon LG G2 will become available OTA, but we are pretty sure that the roll out will begin soon. Anyway, we are pretty sure that once OTA roll out will be made out in stages, meaning that some of you might not be able to download it right away. At the moment, the Verizon Software Update Assistant tool is the quickest way to update your device.

There’s no mention about the changes bought by the update either, but we might anticipate what’s under the hood. Besides the KitKat-specific tweaks such as transparent status and nav bars, white iconography in the status bar, full screen album and movie art in the lock screen, camera shortcut in the lockscreen, cloud printing, color emoji support, new Location menu, the Android 4.4.2 update for Verizon LG G2 will also arrive with updates for the native LG apps.
