Looks like the Lollipop updates just triggered a domino effect among the smartphone manufacturers. Nexus line-up should be the first to receive the Lollipop update but it’s delayed due to a weird battery hog bug in the final build. The next manufacturer anyone would look up to is Motorola who is renowned for quick updates but LG would be in no one’s hit list. Surprisingly, LG announced the Lollipop roll-out is scheduled for the coming week.
We’ve already seen a firmware leak for the Korean LG G3 (F400S), now it’s time for the International LG G3 users to get some Lollipop love but it’s costly. Controversial enough, the KDZ firmware for the D855 has been made available via a teaser at LGBBS which provided the firmware at a cost around $200. However, you don’t have to pay $200 to get the Lollipop running on your LG G3 as few good Samaritans over at XDA collected the funds and purchased the firmware already and then provided to the LG G3 fans for free.
The F400S build which was released earlier was a little buggy as it was built on an unfinished LRX16E verion of Lollipop but this time the firmware was built on the LRX21M version which is pretty much ready to rock your device. So, you can consider it the final version of the update but we aren’t sure what LG is up to after seeing it among the big boys.
Anyone who is eager to install the update on your LG G3 can grab the ROM file from the download link below and flash it using the LG flash tool. This build works only with the International variant of the LG G3 with the model number D855, so don’t be hyper-adventurous and try it on other variants.
