Re: 3/7 - LG Optimus G Software Update - Jellybean Android 4.1.2 (LS970ZVB)

I am in the Miami area, I reset the phone and all that fun stuff, and still no update.  Basically, Sprint screwed up, and I give up.  You pissed me off Sprint, and now, regardless of what my wife says, I am leaving!

Lol its funny when people get all bent out of shape and threaten to leave a carrier over something like a delay on an update that adds a few features that you'll basically finish playing around with in 10 minutes. Get over it people, we're all waiting here. If you're gonna do that, you're gonna end up spending a fortune hopping from carrier to carrier, because all of them will give you reasons to want to leave. All of them, even if it takes awhile

Holyyyyyy ****. Can you believe that? I KNEWWWW they guy from Sprint was right when he told me "No no your getting 4.2, 4.1.2 is stage 1. Get everyone on JB. The RIGHT update has the features that we're all dying for (QSlide, notification bar, others.) Just gotta wait til the majority of people have 4.1.2 before they release stage 2 which is 4.2.

What makes you think 4.1.2 was just a temporary step before we get 4.2?  I'm going to go on record right now and say this isn't happening.  It's highly unlikely that they would release two different versions of jelly bean for a phone unless there were some major issues happening which I don't believe is the case.  Even if they did decide to do that it would be months away from happening.

reporting from St. Louis my phone got the update overnight last night...woke up with the "system update ready to install" notification

looks like they fixed some of the quirks the update had at the beginning (carrier is not "chamaleon" anymore...)

hold on guys it's coming your way...

edit: I highly recommend a full wipe after the OTA for everything to work smoothly...my experience with OTA's is that they deliver the goods but screw some things up in the process...give it a shot

An update has been submitted to update our LG Optimus G Support page to reflect Android 4.1, which is the correct Android version for this update. I apologize for any confusion the Android version on our Support page may have caused.

Disclaimer: I am NOT employed by Sprint, so If my reply helped or answered your question, PLEASE mark it as solved.

The 4.2 was a typo. We are NOT getting 4.2.

Got it in NYC last night. Seems to work well but haven't had a chance to really put it through the paces yet.

Hi from the Support site. We've updated the typo -- sorry about that.

at least you corrected the type Justin.

when i called tech support to get my phone "revived" the person at the other end insisted (he was reading the press release, he said) the version coming out was 4.2

anyway, how much longer do i have to wait? if memory serves, he said no later than 10 days from march 11? or was it march 15?

@pnoybalut I'm not seeing a press release in the Newsroom; the only announcement I see is this community post which states 4.1.2.

The rollouts are done in stages. I've personally had luck with the method brywantruxell outlined here but on my GS3. YMMV.
