LG G2 Android 4.4.2

Best Black Friday Deals at: AT&T, Sprint and Verizon.

According to Sprint’s website, the LG G2 Android 4.4.2 KitKat OTA update is now being pushed to users. The update comes about a month after T-Mobile and AT&T released it for their G2 variants.

As usual, we are dealing with a staged roll out, so it can take several days until the new firmware is delivered to all users. If you receive the Android 4.4.2 update notification on your Sprint LG G2, all you need to do is download it, then select “Install now” after the download have finished. Your smartphone will restart then get upgraded to KitKat. You should also try checking for the update manually under Settings > System Updates > Update LG software > Check now. Alternatively, you can grab the USB cable, hook up your smartphone to the PC, and check for the update using the LG PC companion app. If you choose the OTA method, it’s recommended to download the update file through a WiFi connection to avoid data charges.

Sprint didn’t provided a full changelog for the LG G2 Android 4.4.2 update, but they did mention that it will bring a fix for the Next Radio audio issue. Anyway, you will definitely get the KitKat-specific goodies too, such as cloud printing, full screen album and movie art in the lockscreen, immersive mode, emoji support, white icons in the status bar, transparent status and nav bars, and the new Location menu. Even though it was rumored that the LG G2 will get the Knock Code feature that debuted on the LG G Pro 2, there’s no mention of it in the update that is currently being rolled out by Sprint.

Are there any Sprint LG G2 owners among you? Have you received the Android 4.4.2 KitKat update? Noticed any improvements and / or changes? Please let us know in comments.

    I havent received it yet…but my issue is little to no 4G in a dark green coverage area(76306)…might have to go down to a Sprint store

      Just bc its dark green on the map doesnt mean your gonna get great signal strength…all cariers maps i find really overexaggerate their signal strength in any particular area…i find that they say that strength in perfect conditions not everyday conditions

        all i know is, my phone had nor problem with LTE at and in my house since i got it in december. Now, it will only get 3G in the exact same area…weird

  • Bryon Jorgenson

    Just got the update and it’s a vast improvement to an already great phone, just really want knock on code

  • Robert C

    FYI, no PC Sync software available for Sprint phones. Just have to wait for OTA to prompt.

  • Jimmy Gillentine

    No immerse mode, no knrock code, no album art or movie art with KitKat on the lg g2 for Sprint.

  • lilstinker

    Ya know this is all bs. Just another way of getting comsumers all hyped up over nothing, so i say thanks for nothing. I am selling my lg g2 and going else where. Maybe back to sumsung. Who knows.
    Hopefully the next company will be more honest, later!

    I’m convinced they only roll out these updates to screw up the phones. Every smart phone I’ve ever had works great for about a year, then some software update comes out and then the problems start until you finally ditch it and buy a new one.

    Also the knock on feature on my LG G2 has stopped working, some suggested this may help but I’m doubtful
