Verizon LG G2 KitKat upgrade now available through PC tool


Seems Verizon wanted to deliver some KitKat love without drumming up a ton of noise, as they’ve quietly started rolling the upgrade out the upgrade to their LG G2. It’s buildĀ VS98024A, but there’s one catch in order to get it — you’ll need a Windows PC, as it’s only available using the Verizon Software Upgrade Assistant.

The tool is available by hooking your LG G2 up to your Windows PC using a USB port. You should be prompted to install it automatically. From there, follow all the prompts and you should be well on your way to KitKat.

There’s no full changelog to be had at this time, though you can expect everything that comes with the base KitKat upgrade. Any LG or Verizon changes will have to come with official word, but we have a feeling that won’t take long to come to light. Give it a go on your G2 if you have one and let us know how it’s treating you!

[Thanks to everyone who sent this in!]

    The only issue I’m having so far is that it flat out refuses to notify me now whenever I have new text messages. I have everything turned to full volume but every so often I’ll knock on the screen and see there are multiple texts waiting for me. No notification sound. No pusling LED.

    Anyone else experiencing this?
