Verizon Says The Marshmallow Update For Its LG V10 Variant Is Ready To Go

A bunch of LG phones have been upgraded to Android 6.0 over the last few weeks, and today it's the Verizon V10's version. According to Verizon's support page, at least: the company says it's now sending the over-the-air update to customers, though of course it could be a few days or even a week or two before it reaches every device. Software version VS99022A adds Marshmallow and... well, not much else. It's just Android 6.0 with LG's software skin on top.

Google Confirms You Can Get OTA Updates For The N Preview Even If You Manually Flash The System Image

Many of you were a little overexcited when the Android N developer preview appeared the other day and instantly flashed it on your device. If so, you may have been dismayed to learn that doing so apparently prevented you from getting OTA updates in the new beta program. At least, that's how things looked at the time—it said so right on the download page. We reached out to Google to confirm that, and it turns out that warning wasn't worded quite right.

OTAs From The Android N Beta Program Are Soft Bricking Some Devices, But Google Has A Fix

Google's approach to releasing preview firmware for upcoming versions of Android is evolving into a pretty cool system that allows developers to simply sign up a device and wait for the OTAs to come rolling in. However, no product launch is perfect, and this one is causing some real problems for some users. Complaints started rolling into the Nexus Help Form and AOSP Issue Tracker about devices that were left unable to boot after attempting to install the OTA. This problem is greatly compounded by the fact that many users are not able to unlock their bootloaders, which means they can't fix the issue with a factory image.

A Software Update Makes AT&T's LG G Pad X 10.1 The First Android Tablet To Support NumberSync

The LG G Pad X 10.1 isn't the most notable tablet in the world. Its specs are middling at best, its styling is inoffensive, and it isn't any particular bargain. But it does have one claim to fame, at least if you have the AT&T LTE version: it's the first tablet to support NumberSync, the service that allows users to seamlessly use one number across multiple devices for phone calls and texts. Previously the service was limited to Apple devices (piggybacking off of Apple ID) and the Samsung Gear S2 smartwatch.
