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.
