The Android 4.4.2 KitKat update for LG G Flex is now being rolled out for the T-Mobile customers, about a week after the Sprint variant of the curved smartphone received the same new firmware.
T-Mobile announced on their support page that the LG G Flex Android 4.4.2 update is now available for download. As usual, the new update is most likely rolled out in stages, meaning that some users might not be able to download and install it right away.
When your T-Mobile LG G Flex will become eligible to receive Android 4.4.2 KitKat, you should receive a system update message in the notification area. All you need to do is tap it and follow the on-screen instructions. The new software version is labelled D95920d and another way to find it might be through a manual check. To perform a manual software check you must head to Settings > General > About Phone > System updates > Check now.
T-Mobile says that besides the usual Android 4.4 KitKat improvements (transparent status and nav bars, white status bar icons, cloud printing, color emoji support, full screen album art in the lockscreen, immersive mode, new Location menu, etc.) the new firmware will also arrive with the highly-appreciated KnockCode feature and other software stability fixes.
T-Mo also says that you need to have the phone charged above 50% to be able to update to the new software version. You heaven’t heard it from me, but anything above 15% would work. Because the update file is quite big, it’s recommended to use a stable WiFi network while downloading it in order to avoid data charges.
