LG G2 Users Thread!

Recommended Posts

Thinking of switching from my 5s to a g2. Does anyone have a concrete answer as to when the spark update will rollout? Or is still just rumors. How does the g2 perform on band 41 without the update? Thanks.

 

Comon man, 5S < G2 by long shot.... forget about the update, you'll surely forget all about the iPhone when you get G2.  I'm not saying that because I think the iPhone is a joke... but I actually turned a long time iPhone user to G2 (during the free deal at Best Buy) and she is very Very VERY happy and misses nothing having to do with iOS.  :tu:  :tu:

It'll be posted here before anyone gets an OTA.

I am actually kind of glad that other people are having trouble with the sound quality through the bluetooth... I thought it was just me. I really hopes that it gets fixed soon though.

Thanks for confirming.  I thought it was only me and I was going to request a replacement soon.  Guess I'll hold off.

The last OTA was posted at 11:36am. We'll see if anything posted by 1pm. Otherwise we should assume it's not today.

 

Here's another page you can check in the mean time.

Not really for what you are thinking of, its released due to the license of Android. Nothing more.

 

Wait for the update to hit someone's phone, then they will either post the update link to Google's server or the update zip itself. You can then take the file yourself and apply the update as long as you haven't modified any system files it will pass and update everything. It's like forcing the OTA early.

will this be on the "software update" or "firmware update" to be checking?

I'm sure this isn't something new, likely in the specs, but tinkering with my Ubiquiti airrouter helped me discover that the LG G2 won't connect if you set wireless to 40mHz. Has to be either 20/40, or 20 mHz wide channel. The G2 would see the airrouter, but trying to connect just wouldn't work at all while set to 40 mHz.

That's due to Ubiquiti, when in that mode it freaks out many 20mhz only devices.

Learn something new every day, thanks..I sure didn't know that. I set it to 40 the other day, haven't paid much attention until I kept getting complaints from family saying things wouldn't connect...so I went back and made the change.

I did get notice of a FW update today, but it obviously didn't fix the issue because even after the 5.5.8 FW none of my devices would connect, and changing to 20mhz solved it.

 

 

I'm in a new beta with a range extender..and I sat the beta range extender in the same spot as my Ubiq Loco M2...and I pick up more signal than the Ubi puts out...I was a little shocked to see that. I noticed with my G2 that even 200ft from the range extender, I still see the Asus_EXT network that it's broadcasting, and the G2 says it's "fair" signal..

Must be a decent radio in the G2 from all I've seen. I pick up wifi AP's that I know for sure are almost 1/5 of a mile from me.

HTC has a great page showing a diagram of the update process. It helps explain why a Nexus (or an iPhone, if you think of it) gets updates immediately, but it takes months for a new Android version to make its way to provider-specific devices:

 

http://www.htc.com/us/go/htc-software-updates/

 

The process for non-OS updates is similar. LG posting source code may or may not be a sign that a public update is imminent. Sprint has to test and certify it before that happens. I don't see why LG would publicly post code from an update that has not been certified yet (and therefore might not be released), but who knows.

Relax. It's not a letter of what's "right", it's a matter of not releasing an update until it is ready. I'm sure that Sprint and LG would have shipped the phone bug-free and Spark-ready from day one if they could have. You're talking about technology that hadn't ever been deployed on Sprint's network until a couple of months ago, and a large majority of the country still doesn't have access to it.

 

Go outside and enjoy the weather. If the G2 update is the biggest drama in your life, you're doing ok.

    • I accidentally broke the Samsung menus when I compiled the latest release; it will be resolved in next update.   Thanks, I'll look into that.. it's all a work in progress, glad we are making some headway!   The current display format is temporary, it is just to get the data displaying reliably.. once that happens, it will get its own "block" like the connection other technologies have.
    • I forgot to post this this morning. Seems that Sprint will offer the V60. My buddy at Sprint HQ says more will be said Monday. Lets see if this pans out.   TS out
    • Another suggestion, can you place the 5G info above the neighbor cell list? In dense urban areas with 5x CA there will easily be enough neighbor cells to push the 5G info off the screen. Sent from my SM-G988U using Tapatalk

    • Its working on both phones, I sent a couple mode diagnostic reports. I dont see the band selector shortcut anymore though. I'm not seeing the accent color on either phone but I do have the option set to show it. Sent from my SM-G988U using Tapatalk
