It has been about two months since Google started rolling out their newest Android operating system of Android M (also known as version 6.0 or Marshmallow), and Android users of the latest devices worldwide are wondering when they will be receiving their update. It has already come to the latest Nexus devices with the 5X and 6P, but when will it come to other Android devices, such as the ones from LG. This is the latest on the Android M Version 6.0 Marshmallow Release Date for LG G4, G3, G Flex 2 on Verizon, T-Mobile, Sprint, and AT&T.
According to Android Pit, the status of the Marshmallow update on the LG G4 is "rolling out". This does not mean that LG G4 users will be able for an Over the Air (OTA) upgrade at this moment in the United States, but it is getting there.
LG has definitely made promises in the past that their subscribers are going to be the first to be receiving the Android upgrade. The previously mentioned Nexus series was actually the first to get it, but LG seems committed to getting it out as soon as possible.
For this reason, LG started rolling out the update to G4 users in Poland, who were supposed to be receiving it in October. Unfortunately, there were technical difficulties and the test was halted. By late November, users across Europe reported that the Android Marshmallow update was beginning to arrive on their devices. If you are an LG G4 user, it is possible to check to see if your device is part of this rollout using LG Bridge, the company's PC sync software.
In November, LG made the Marshmallow update available to G4 users in Korea, which made it the second country to receive it. This software was uploaded to the LG website, which allowed users to apply the update via their computers.
Tech Radar reports that the update has been received in other European countries like Poland, Germany, Portugal, Spain, Romania, Austria, Switzerland, Hungary, Croatia, and Turkey. It also reports that it doesn't mean the update will be available to you immediately, as your mobile network like AT&T, Verizon, Sprint, or T-Mobile might have to do some work before United States consumers get their OTA update. There is no word when this update will be coming to LG G4 users, either.
T-Mobile currently lists the G4 as well as the LG G3 and LG G Stylo as devices that will receive the first wave of Android updates. Other LG devices that will probably receive the upgrade include the G Flex 2, G4c, but probably not the G2.
If you are a G3 user, and you want Android 6.0 now, it is possible, but it is also technical. It involves using the CyanogenMod, as it has just been revealed that CyanogenMod 13 (CM13 nightly) is running Android 6.0 and available for download to many smartphones that include the LG G3, according to the VC Post.
As stated before, installing the custom ROM is a highly technical process, and it can only be installed on d85x, Is990, and vs985 versions of the LG G3 only. Any other attempt on other devices could result in what is known as getting "bricked". In other words, you should proceed with caution if you are going to go this route, but if you do, detailed instructions are available at the International Business Times.
