Sprint starts KitKat rollout for its version of the LG G2
Sprint customers sporting the LG G2 will start receiving the Android 4.4 update today. The update will add a number of new features while removing some bugs. It also adds support for cloud printing and fixes an issue with Next Radio. KitKat is being sent out OTA, and Sprint says that you need to follow the directions on the screen.

If you don't receive the update today, there is no reason to call up LG to chew out a phone rep. Android 4.4 is being sent out in waves, which means that it could take some time before it finally arrives. You can also try to manually grb the update out of your phone by going to Settings > System Updates > Update LG Software > Check Now. Your best bet is to use a Wi-Fi connection when downloading and installing the update, so that the process doesn't eat away at your monthly data allowance. And of course, you should have your battery charged to at least 50%

If your LG G2 does receive the Android 4.4 update, let us know by dropping a comment in the box below.

Has the T-Mobile version already been updated?

I'd really prefer to see the Optimus G see some crunchy Kit Kat love, but hey... Why bother supporting your former top devices LG?

It's unfortunate that this might be the last update for an otherwise top spec device with enough horsepower to last for 3 solid years... Nice work LG

I'm getting the LG G2 right now, and I really hope that they support it with updates for at least another year... It's a pretty future proof device...

Will Update from 4.2.2 to kitkat fix my software issues, knock on hardly ever works, sometimes freezes, with sleeping screen and unable to wake up phone after hang up phone call. Hopefully software upgrade will fix it, I dont want to give it in, I will wait weeks for device to return!!
