Last year, Google launched the all-new Android 5.0 Lollipop OS and many smartphones are already running on the new system. This is except for the LG G2, which is still pending to receive the Android 5.0 Lollipop update.
Well, instead of waiting for LG to launch the update, G2 users can head over XDA and install a custom ROM if they wish to experience the Android 5.0 Lollipop.
The custom ROM is the one that is developed by Rashed97 and it is made specifically for the G2 D800, D801, D802, LS980 and VS980 variants. Applying the custom ROM on the aforementioned devices will simply replace the KitKat OS with the latest Lollipop OS.
Unfortunately, the custom ROM is still in its early build so there are a couple of minor issues with it. If the issues are to bug the G2 users, they can report the problem at XDA and a fix will be created accordingly.
So, if you are a G2 user and wish to get a taste of the Android 5.0 Lollipop, then you can claim the custom ROM over at XDA. Once done, you can refer to the following instructions for installation.
1. Make sure a backup is created and the device is already rooted with CWM. We recommend doing so with NANDROID.
2. A minimum of 50% battery life to ensure no disruption when installation is taking place.
3. CM12 ROM ZIP downloaded for the G2.
4. Google Apps Package downloaded.
1. Transfer both the Custom ROM and Google Apps Package to your G2.
2. Boot device into recovery mode and wipe cache, data and system partition.
3. Flash the CM12 ROM.
4. Then, Flash the Google Apps Package.
5. The G2 should reboot and it will run on the Lollipop OS.
