LG G2 Android 4.4.2 update starts rolling out in Korea, brings ART support

LG G2

Android 4.2.2 has begun to roll out to the LG G2 in Korea, this according to an anonymous tipster over at Phone Arena. The update was originally expected by the end of January in Korea, but rolling out almost a week late should not set LG back too far in rolling out this update to G2 phones around the globe by the end of the first quarter.

True to the most recent release of Android, the update will support Android RunTime (ART), an improved replacement to the current Dalvik runtime. ART has the advantage of pre-loading application bytecode from install instead of loading on demand when the user opens an app, resulting in as much as a 50% speed increase. We covered it in a handy video, check it out. For now, ART is an experimental feature, but it is likely to become the main runtime for future versions of Android.

No word if the update includes any changes to features or function of their own Q-Slide and other custom apps as a part of LG’s skinned Launcher.

How is your LG G2 holding up – are you impatiently awaiting the Android 4.4.2 Kit Kat update or are you just planning on grabbing the G2 Pro when it finally comes out?

      hur…..

    ART is mentioned as if it’s a surprise, isn’t ART a standard feature of Kitkat?

    • Gator352

      Art is still experimental but just so happens to be included with 4.4 and up if the manufacturers decide to include it. It’s not mandatory yet.

        I searched for this issue with LG G2 and did not find anything that could help me.
        To make it fast, when changing the sim to another from another carrier, the window asking for a code won’t pop up….
        There’s another way in wich you introduce a number on the dial screen and a menu pops up… that won’t work either….
        Nor the two methods where you dial some numbers and it asks you for the code… so…
        Do I have to go back to stock??
        I am running on CloudyPro 2.1
        Thank you.
