Local LG G2 finally gets Android 4.4 Kitkat

Locally released models of the LG G2 has finally gotten updates of the latest Android 4.4.2 Kitkat this week.

Yesterday, we were able to update our own LG G2 to Android Kitkat.

The upgrade file was 535MB in size and was dated March 7, 2014. The roll-out became available just this week.

The update introduced some system improvements to the G2. Of the lot, what we noticed to be more significant is the more sensitive Knock On function.

This update is the OTA method while the PC Suite method was already out as early as last week.

Battery life was also improved so we’ll have to see if that’s noticeable in the coming days.

    BUGS

    a) hissing/cracking sounds on the left headset when using music player, watching movies, streaming videos online;

    b) Bluetooth consuming battery even if not in use; and

    c) faster battery drain.

  2. Carl Bytes says:

    4.4.2 is also not compatible with Xposed framework and IOroot. I’ll stick to JB as of now.

    pretty sure na maaayos naman nila ito by next update next month or May, depends on region, kasama sa update ang KnockCode.

    bugz na napansin ko is, yung crack sound din, yun naman is while navigating the phone, listening to music using a headset

    bluetooth is working nga pero off naman, idk why?

    saka sudden unresponsive touchscreen which will last for 5 up to 15 seconds

    Haven’t heard the sound issue yet or baka di ko lang madistinguish.

    One thing I am experiencing is yun lag sa pag pinupush un home button. Am using apex pro so not sure kung dahil sa apex ba or what.

    Hindi ko pa natry yung unresponsive screen. Other than the hissing sound, naging mas power hungry si G2
