T-Mobile to retry updating its LG G3 to Lollipop today
T-Mobile is rolling out another over-the-air update for its variant of the LG G3 today, having previously failed to bring Android 5.0 Lollipop to all of its customers earlier in the year. The update will bring handsets up to build number D85120e, states T-Mobile Senior Product Manager Des Smith.
According to the Twitter message, the update D85120e should have begun rolling out just after midnight, but it will likely be rolling out in waves so might not reach your particular handset until a few days later.
T-Mobile Software Update: The new #LGG3 SW build is D85120e and should start rolling out to customers tonight after 12:01 am Pacific— Des (@askdes) June 9, 2015
Back in April, T-Mobile had begun rolling out an Android Lollipop update to G3 owners under the build number D85120b. This update was quickly pulled shortly following its release, leaving some users updated and others without Lollipop. The reasons for cancelling the update have not been made official, but some T-Mobile LG G3 owners have apparently been having problems with their handsets after updating.
Unfortunately, there isn’t a detailed change-log for the update online yet, so we can’t be sure of the differences between versions b and e. Although those upgrading from KitKat will finally get to play around with the changes to notifications and the recent apps menu, along with all of the under the hood Lollipop changes.
Keep an eye out for that OTA notification.
