T-Mobile LG G2 Updated to Android 4.4.2 KitKat

Not so long ago AT&T pushed the Android 4.4.2 KitKat update to its LG G2 and it is more than obviously that everyone has waited for T-Mobile’s turn to come as well. The company has just released the kernel source for the Android 4.4.2 update on their open source page, as some users on the xda-developers forums have discovered and you should pay some attention in this case. No OTA is going to hit the airwaves as we are generally used too, which means that all T-Mobile G2 owners have to be fast and download the Android 4.4.2 KitKat by themselves.

Things to Know before the Download

There are a couple of things that you should know before starting the download. The ROM weighs in at 1.5GB, so you’ll probably have to be patient while waiting for it to fully download.

And after that, don’t forget that you actually need the LG Mobile Support Tool (download it from here) in order to actually install the update on your T-Mobile LG G2 handset.

Anyway, in case you feel that this option isn’t for you, then there is another possibility that you should take into consideration too. You can simply wait a little longer for the OTA update to start rolling out. T-Mobile hasn’t previously announced this release, while AT&T’s LG G2 was officially updated to KitKat, so we can only guess that the official release isn’t so far off for this T-Mobile version either.

The KitKat Update on LG’s website

Do you want your T-Mobile LG G2 updated to Android 4.4.2 KitKat as soon as possible instead? No problem. You can grab the update as we are speaking from LG’s website; after the download of that 1.5GB file is complete, you have to connect your LG G2 to your notebook/computer in order to install the update with the help of that LG Mobile Support Tool that we have already told you about.

And you already know! Several new features and enhancements will be there waiting for you!
