After Verizon approved an update last month, now it’s the time for AT&T LG G2 (D800) to get updated to official Android 5.0 with D80030f software version. This is the 4th update that has been acquired by this 2013 flagship device, and the last update is Android 4.4.2 KitKat update (20y) which was released in January this year. Same as before, to be able to download and install the official LG updates (30f) via OTA, your phone should be in stock unmodified and unrooted software, so if your device still rooted, most likely the update procedure will be failed and it could brick your phone.
The LG G2 now getting older, it’s almost two years since it’s released in August 2013. With the release of the new flagship smartphone – LG G4 sometime soon, could make this device looks more obsolete. Fortunately, LG is offering Android 5.0.2 Lollipop update for AT&T LG G2, it could help these devices to look modern. There’s no significant update besides the Lollipop itself, only the removal of the bloatware apps, such as the Browser Bar and Famigo, and also the AT&T Code Scanner and Beats Music.
If you have rooted and also has a custom recovery installed, flashing a custom-rooted stock ROM is the easiest way to get stock while rooted when compared to the OTA-way. But for those who already updating, it seems we still can regain root on Lollipop (30f) for AT&T LG G2 with universal 2015 LG root toolkit.
If you are not geek users, do not worry, because there’s an easy one-click method for you, there’s no technical requirements for utilizing this one-click tool.
Here is an overview to undertake it:
- Prepare your Windows computer (Windows 7 or 8.1 are preferred).
- Update the drivers to the latest version (LG United Mobile Driver).
- Grab the avicoh’s LG One-click root utility, available in Windows batch file (bat) or GUI (exe).
- Extract the utility (batch file) or unzip the GUI and install it on your computer.
- Enable USB debugging then connect your phone to computer via USB.
- Now run the script follow any given instruction. If everything goes well, your AT&T LG G2 running Lollipop (D80030f) should have root now.
