by: Jimmy WestenbergFebruary 2, 2016


The big update to Android 6.0 Marshmallow has already rolled out to the LG G4 in various parts of the United States and Europe, and it looks like residents of Canada are up next on the list. LG G4 units of Canada’s Telus and Rogers mobile networks will be receiving their Marshmallow updates within the next couple days. According to the Telus software update support page, the LG G4 should have started receiving Marshmallow on Monday, February 1st, along with a security update. The update schedule also states the G3 will receive Marshmallow on Monday, March 14th.

As for Rogers, Android 6.0 Marshmallow should start rolling out to the G4 on Wednesday, February 3rd. MobileSyrup also reports that many G4 owners on Bell, Virgin Mobile, Wind Mobile and a few other Canadian carriers have started receiving the Marshmallow update as well.

  • please LG show the V10 some Marshmallow love. I beg you for the love of god and all that is holy.

    The LG G4 gets it before the V10 ? WTF ?

  • Lewis Newman

    My LG G4 now has an update available. I presume its 6.0 but can’t update yet as no WiFi. I’m based in UK so it seems we’re getting it too

    Updated my LG G4 (with Rogers) to Marshmallow yesterday evening over LTE. This morning, no mobile data service on the phone. Restarted it, checked settings, manually connected to Rogers LTE network and still no data. Not sure what the cause but the only change was updating to 6.0.

      Check to see that your Rogers LTE APN was not wiped out. Go into Settings…Network….More….Mobile Network….Access Point Name. Make sure the fields are filled out. If they are blank, Google “Rogers LTE APN”

        I had checked this and everything was as it should be, except “Rogers Internet (ltemobile.apn)” was unchecked. Checked it, didn’t resolve the issue. Rebooted and it was still not resolved. Returned to the APN and select “Reset to Default” and LTE can back immediately. Thank you though for your response, your suggestion was definitely on the right track!

          This is great – thank you so much! I didn’t realize I didn’t have data until I needed it and couldn’t access it.

    Got my 6.0 update on Monday. Unfortunately LG seems to have disabled the Adopt SD card as internal feature. Bummer. Why would they block a major new feature like that?

    • ChrisPollard77

      I think it’s because there are some huge support implications. Depending how it’s implemented, there’s the potential to have the phone become unusable if the memory card were removed, or worse, suddenly stopped working.

      I actually support that move right now. It could become a HUGE headache if it’s not implemented correctly, with some failsafes in place.


    Received on my Telus LG G4 on Feb 1st using the LG Bridge PC software. OTA update was not on my device and I didn’t want to wait.

    Update size was 1.53gb

    Recieved my Rogers LG G4 update last night. Today the phone is really slow to load apps, texts take a long time to send as well. So far not impressed.

  • ChrisPollard77

    Only problem I’ve had so far is Alarmpad Pro didn’t get storage access rights, so I woke up to a very strange alarm tone this morning. Easily fixed, but strange that all other permissions were checked off already. Already seeing Doze at work, like some new options in the launcher, (new transition effects) and see that the battery use stats now also show use in mAh.

    Pretty solid so far. NOT liking that the Google app is no longer available by swiping up. You have to hold, wait for On Tap to launch, then tap again. That’s a step backwards.

  • Ajay Pradhan

    When Android 6.0 Marshmallow going to roll out in India for LG G4 ??

  • Ninaad Dhuri

    Can we still move apps to sd card after the marshmallow update?

  • MBTechno

    Haha Android Pay — I don’t think so. Not in Canada.

  • lumberjake

    Anyone know how I can get the update? I am on virgin Canada but they think I am still using my HTC m7 not the LG v10.
