lg g4 review aa (25 of 34)

Update (2/6): Weren’t able to grab the update from your computer? No worries – it looks like many LG G4 owners on T-Mobile have started receiving their over-the-air (OTA) updates. If you have yet to receive the update notification, head to Settings>About phone>Check for update. It should be available for download, but if not, you might need to wait a day or two for LG to roll it out to your device.

Original post (2/5): LG is on a roll when it comes to updates, and the latest to join the Marshmallow club is the LG G4 model sold by T-Mobile in the United States.

Screenshot_2016-02-04-15-03-33Following the release of the Android 6.0 to the unlocked G4 sold across Europe, in South Korea, on US Cellular and on Canada’s Telus and Rogers, LG has now made Marshmallow available on the T-Mobile LG G4 (H811) via its PC synchronization software LG Bridge.

Many users have reported being able to update their LG G4 to Marshmallow by connecting their phone via USB to PC and checking for an update manually. Note that an over the air (OTA) update is not yet available and T-Mobile’s support page for the G4 doesn’t yet mention yet the availability of the update.

As with other recent LG devices getting the Marshmallow upgrade, you’re looking at improvements for Knock Code, the implementation of the new app permissions model, a redesigned Silent Mode, Peek mode, and some visual changes.

If you’re into rooting and ROM-ing, the folks over at XDA-Developers already have you covered with a fully stock ROM available for flashing, as well as the necessary rooting methods.

Thanks, Brooke!

    has anyone attempted to get G4 replaced/fixed through T-mo for the bootloop issue? even if it’s out of warranty w/ T-mo already?

      If you have insurance it should be no problem

      I got mine replaced no issue. Plus the phone hasn’t even been out for a year so all of them are under warranty

    LG Bridge says my phone is up to date (Lollipop). No luck via OTA update here in Texas.

    I just traded my G4 for a Note 4 via JUMP because I thought the note 4 would get the update first (among other reasons).
