T-Mobile is gearing up to push out an over-the-air update to the LG G3 that finally brings the device Android Lollipop. You might be scratching your head wondering why this is news you’ve heard before. Back in early April, T-Mobile began pushing out Lollipop to the LG G3 (build D85120b), but later pulled that update for unknown reasons.

Now they’ve got an entirely new build they want to push out the LG G3, and the update starts tonight at midnight. T-Mobile Senior Product Manager Des Smith confirmed the news on Twitter, saying this new update will carry the build number D85120e (up from April’s 20b).

Whether you received the initial Lollipop update or not, every will be getting this one which is likely to roll out in waves, so don’t freak out if you don’t see the update right away — it’s coming.

  1. Good, as a employee of T-mobile, we gotten some g3 owners having all sorts of issues since their Lollipop update. hopefully this will fix all this.

    1. My only (TMo) problem is with WiFi calling. If it drops signal, it hates to reconnect. Of course, Lollipop has problems with XFinity routers, but that won’t get fixed with this.

  2. 5.0 is garbage anyway. They are better off with kitkat

  3. does anyone know if the original G Flex will get an update?

  4. Perhaps it fixes battery drain and phone calling failures.
