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.
Verizon Wireless is pleased to announce a software update for your device. This software update has been tested to help optimize device performance, resolve known issues and apply the latest security patches.
Before you download:
- Connect your device to a Wi-Fi network, or make sure it has a strong Verizon Wireless network connection.
- Ensure your battery is fully charged before starting the software update.
Verizon doesn't say how big the update is, but these full version bumps with skins usually weigh in at about a gigabyte, so prepare for a bit of downtime once you get the over-the-air alert. The good news is that you can download it over the mobile network (if you have enough data left on your plan, anyway). Verizon allows for mobile-only software downloads, which isn't the case for some of its competitors who force you onto Wi-Fi.
As usual, you may or may not see the update right away, since Verizon will send it to its V10 customers in a staged rollout. If you're impatient and want an OTA file to flash manually, check your preferred user forum like XDA - you might just get lucky when one of your fellow V10 owners uploads the file.
According to this page, the update itself is scheduled to begin tomorrow, March 24th.
