India-based users are reporting that the LG G2 Android 4.4.2 KitKat update has begun rolling out for them.
According to this XDA Developers Forum thread the Android 4.4.2 KitKat update for LG G2 is now being pushed to the Indian owners of the device. While some reported that the update is coming through OTA (over-the-air), others are saying that they were only able to download and install it via LG PC Suite.
Even though there is no official changelog for the LG G2 Android 4.4.2 update the new firmware is supposed to bring the usual KitKat goodies such as full screen album and movie art in lockscreen, white icons in the status bar, transparent status and nav bars, emoji support, cloud printing, or immersive mode, along with performance improvements (up to 17% increase), and better battery life.
On Tuesday, the LG representatives announced that the Knock Code feature that debuted last month on the LG G Pro 2 will be made available for both the LG G2 and the LG G Flex through a separate firmware in April.
As usual, the new software will be rolled out in phases which means that only some of the LG G2 owners will be able to download and install it right away. In case you didn’t receive the system update message in the notification area, it’s also recommended to check for it manually under Settings > General > About Phone > Update Center > Software Update > Check now for Update. Alternatively, you can grab the USB cable, connect your smartphone to the PC and search for the new firmware via LG PC Suite.
It’s also worth noting that the Android 4.4.2 KitKat update for LG G2 weighs about 530 MB, so if you choose the OTA method you should download the update file using a stable WiFi connection.
