LG G2 Kit Kat Update Available From Verizon Via Upgrade Assistant

LG G2 Kit Kat Update Available From Verizon Via Upgrade Assistant
News from Droid Life:

The LG G2 Kit Kat (Android 4.4.2) update from Verizon is finally available as build VS98024A, though you can’t exactly grab it over-the-air. No, sir, this update is currently only available through Verizon’s Software Upgrade Assistant, which is only available on Windows for LG phones. Sorry, Mac homies.

In order to update on Windows, all you have to do is plug-in your LG G2, then either wait for Windows to prompt you for an action or open a folder and look for a Verizon/LG drive to appear. In that folder, you should find a SWUpgradeLauncher app that will walk you through the steps to getting your Kit Kat on. 

The update weighs in at around 2GB, so it’s substantial.

No word yet on when the update will be available OTA. In fact, Verizon’s own support pages still do not show that the update is available even though you can manually update through their software upgrade tool.

The process is pretty painless, so don’t be scared to give it a shot if you have a Windows machine. I was able to do it just fine on a virtual Windows 8 partition on my iMac.

LG launches budget L65 dual-SIM smartphone with Android Kitkat and Knock …
News from Firstpost:

South Korean smartphone maker LG has just launched a new dual-SIM Android smartphone called L65 for the Russian market. It is the newest member of its latest smartphone series of Android smartphones which include L70 and L90. The phone has appeared on the LG’s Russian website.

According to the site, L65 will come loaded with Android V4.4 (Kitkat) operating system out of the box. It has a 4.3 inch IPS display with a WVGA resolution (480×800) which is less than the L70 smartphone. Under its hood is a 1.2GHz dual-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 200 processor with 1GB RAM. This is the same configuration which we saw in L70 and L90 models too.

The L65 has a 5MP rear camera that comes with autofocus feature but no LED Flash. The front camera comes with a meagre 0.3 megapixel resolution. This is in sharp contrast to 8 MP rear camera and 1.3 MP front camera which we saw in L90 as well as L70 models.

News from Android Authority:

Custom ROMs have given us the opportunity to enjoy the latest Android OS on our mobile phones. With independent developers creating ported or custom ROMs, we have enjoyed the latest Android 4.1 Jelly Bean on our Android phones that still haven’t received the official Android 4.1 Jelly Bean update. 

XDA Developers member Rashed97 shares a CyanogenMod 10 ROM, based on Android 4.1.1 Jelly Bean, with three lucky phones: the LG Optimus One P500, the LG Phoenix P505, and the LG Thrive P506. Although reported to work on these Android phones, the ROM still faces some broken features such as the following:

  • Camera
  • Google Now
  • Boot animation turns on and off

If these bugs are not a big issue, you can take peek at how Android 4.1.1 Jelly Bean looks on your Android phone.

This post teaches you how to upgrade LG Optimus One phones to Android 4.1.1 Jelly Bean via CyanogenMod 10.

Sony and LG ditch phones in Jelly Bean and ICS upgrade cycle

Sony and LG ditch phones in Jelly Bean and ICS upgrade cycle
News from SlashGear:

Worth Reading?

0 [2 votes]

Android fragmentation, what Android fragmentation? Oh, there it is. Sony and LG are surprising few but disappointing plenty with confirmation that several devices apiece won’t be getting new versions of the OS. For Sony, it’s the Xperia arc S and Xperia mini pro which have reached the end of the update line, with no chance of an official Jelly Bean release. However, the news is arguably even worse for some LG users, who still aren’t even on Ice Cream Sandwich.

LG Canada has admitted that neither the Optimus 2X nor the Optimus Black will be upgraded from Gingerbread. Both handsets were expected to receive Ice Cream Sandwich – the Optimus 2X in Q2 initially, with the Optimus Black said to receive an u…………… continues on SlashGear

Open-Source Phone Pushes The Boundaries Of DIY Tech
News from EarthTechling:

Tired of high cost mobile phones? Feel guilty that while you’ve got a paper thin phone, it’s hard to recycle elements are destroying the planet ? Turns out, you don’t need Samsung or LG to stay in touch with those you love.

David A. Mellis, from MITs High-Low Tech group, has created a DIY mobile phone out of easily obtained electronic parts and a little bit of plywood. It may not have the internet connectivity or giant touchscreen of your current mobile phone, but it’s a completely self-made, operational phone, which means it’s low impact and free from the constraints of mass production.

According to Mellis, the initial prototype combines a custom electronic circuit board with a laser-cut plywood and veneer enclosure. The phone accepts a standard SIM card and works with any GSM provider. Cellular connectivity is provided by the SM5100B GSM Module, available from SparkFun Electronics.
