LG G2: Upgrading From KitKat TO Android 5.0 Lollipop

There is no better way to start 2015 for LG G2 users than through updating their device to the latest Android 5.0 Lollipop. The OS has been made available for the LG G2 D800, D801, D802, LS980, and VS980 variants, thanks to XDA developer Rashed97.

Then again, it is also worth noting that the custom ROM containing the Android 5.0 Lollipop is still in its early build and there are errors with it. Rashed97 was courteous enough to share that the GPS and video recording features are problematic. Also, the LS/VS980 version of the G2 is suffering from faulty cellular network. Aside from that, everything else works like wonders for the LG G2.

With that being said, LG G2 users can skip the wait for an official update and start installing the Android 5.0 Lollipop on their device now. If you are a G2 user, you can check out our installation guide below.
