I was asking about the G820UM20a B update for the LG G8 ThinQ. If it was actually released in December and how to get the update. Also if the update actually had Android 10.
Well, for the last software update information that I can see we have for the LG G8 ThinQ, is that it should have the G82010l version. No information was found at the moment, about being released an update back in December. Once it is available, it will pop up in your phone in order for you to install it.
The latest software version that was released for this model is G82010I, which was available on 11/11/19.
Software updates are released by the manufacturer. You can keep yourself updated through this channel.
If after going to Settings> General> About> Check software version, it says that no updates are available, it means that this is the latest one.
i received it Friday. many things were changed to a dark mode..which i like.
I did the manual update to LMG820UM0 V20a. Thanks for the clear instructions. Do you know how to update to LMG820UM0 V20d because I'm not seeing the popup even though the update is available?
I have no idea how to rollback to Pie. There isn't a pie kdz file and i don't think there ever will be. If i had the v20d update file i would try updating using the same method.
Check XDA. They have a guide on there under the G8 section. I personally don't have one but my best friend does and I was going to install the beta but after I read it might give problems updating I held out and her phone got it a week or two later. The guide looks like it's not easy if you aren't familiar with using adb though. I also believe you lose all data. Maybe you can bring it to a Sprint store and they can do it for you. Again, you will probably lose all data.
