Verizon Wireless has reportedly started rolling out the much-awaited Android 6.0 Marshmallow OTA (over-the-air) update to LG G3 devices.
The report comes a few weeks after LG G3 devices in Poland received the new firmware.
According to a report by MobileFreq (via GSMArena), a Reddit user by the name Jrdnram_98 has claimed that his G3 device has received Android 6.0 Marshmallow OTA update and has even shared a screenshot of his device running on the firmware. The update carries the build number MRA58K and takes the software version to VS98546A. It also includes security patch for January.
It is still not confirmed if the new firmware is actually being rolled out to G3 devices, but it could well turn out to be true as the update has been expected for a while now. The OTA update is expected to come in phases (if released), so it may take some time to reach all devices.
How to install Android 6.0 Marshmallow via OTA on Verizon LG G3:
- Android 6.0 Marshmallow download notification will appear on your LG G3 screen
- Press the "Download" button
- Press the "Restart & Install" button
- Rebooting will begin automatically
- You will see "Installing System Update" notice when installation starts
- Upgrading begins automatically
- Android 6.0 Marshmallow will run on your device after upgrading is done
You can also manually check the availability of the new software by going to: "Settings" >> "About phone" >> "System updates" >> "Check For Update".
Spring and US Cellular variants of LG G4 have received Android 6.0 Marshmallow update, and other carriers like AT&T, T-Mobile and Verizon are also expected to announce a roll out by the end of this month or early February. T-Mobile has listed LG V10, LG G3, LG G4 and LG G Stylo for the firmware update and is currently placed in Manufacturer Development stage, which means the device manufacturer have agreed to support a new software update.
