LG G2 for AT&T receives a 15MB update to support updates coming in the future
If you're an AT&T customer sporting the LG G2, we have some good news for you. A 15.4MB update to broadband version M8974A-AAAANAZM-1.0. 190034 brings enhancements to the model, which will allow it to support future firmware updates. You can delay the update up to three times for four hours each time. After the fourth delay, the update will automatically get installed on the phone.

The update won't bring any changes that you can see, but it remains important nonetheless as it opens up your handset for future updates. The build of Android on your LG G2 will remain at Android 4.2.2. It is possible that this update will be smoothing the way for the upcoming KitKat update. 

Officially, today's update is said to provide FOTA enhancements to support future updates, and also includes Google enhancements. Yeah, we know you wanted this to be Android 4.4, but it is coming soon. Really.

Hey, Alan! I would appreciate if you include this warning message in the article, so that people can avoid what just happened to my G2! Everybody beware!!.. If you're rooted and have TWRP, then do not accept this update! I was not even asked to accept the update, not even once. And now I'm stuck in a bootloop that only takes me to TWRP and the system doesn't boot no matter how many times I tried to restore my old backup or even other custom ROMS.. Something in the update seriously screwed up my phone Trying to employ a workaround for this from an xda thread.. Hopefully this works :(

Mine just updated without option to accept or decline. No issues. But my phone is not rooted.
