LG, along with other manufacturers, continues to roll out the Android 6.0 Marshmallow update to a range of devices. According to new information, more LG devices are in line to receive the firmware.
It has been several months that the Google has released the Android 6.0 Marshmallow update. As the Nexus line got first dibs on the firmware, manufacturers like LG had to wait for the availability of the code for their own rollout. Fortunately, updates seem to move fast. The LG G4 was the first device aside from the Nexus line to receive the Android 6.0 program. A new report from Android Geeks says that devices like LG G4, LG G3, LG V10, and LG G Flex 2 have started receiving the update as well.
It was in the latter part of October last year that LG started rolling out the update. LG G4 users in Poland were the first to receive the update. Then came November and the Android 6.0 Marshmallow update for Korean users was released. Three weeks after that LG started releasing the LG G4 Android 6.0 Marshmallow update to a number of countries in Europe. However, US users may have to wait longer. So far, only LG G4 Sprint users have access to the update.
LG also confirmed rollout to the following devices: LG V10 high-end phablet, LG G4 Stylus and LG G3. Just like other Android rollouts, users should confirm with their networks about the exact availability of the firmware to their devices.
For those who do not have access to the update but are curious to find out what the update offers, it is possible to root the LG G3 (D855). Users can manually install the update on the LG G3 through the Marshmallow KDZ file via the LG’s official site, according to Android Origin. Users must take all necessary precautions because rooting mobile phones can be tricky and can result to bricked devices.
