LG G3 Android Marshmallow update 

Verizon LG G3 update

The LG G3 Android Marshmallow update is now rolling out North America. A reddit user uploaded a screenshot that confirms Verizon has started to make the update available to its customers, bringing the device to software version VS98546A.

The download comes in at 788.6 MB and you should be notified when it becomes available. If you're eager, you can head to Settings > About phone > Update center > Software update and hit Check now for update to see if it's ready. Before installing the new version, make sure your device has at least 50 percent charge.

There is no word from the other carriers just yet, but their updates can't be far behind. 

Let us know in the comments what you think of LG's Marshmallow interface.

      try the LG Mobile Support Tool >>Download It Here>> (lg-support-tool.en.lo4d.com) and use this simple software to get and install updates to your LG Mobile via USB connection, if there is it will download and push to your phone, please read before updating and as usual ensure battery is above 50% (*THIS WILL NOT IN ANY WAY ROOT YOUR PHONE OR IS A ROOTING TOOL OF ANY KIND*) Hope you get through, this is a reliable solution, cheers

  • I have lg g3 VS 98535B model.....its not going to marshmellow why

  • I have a G3 D850 Gold. It is an unlocked international version. It's still on 4.4.2; after contacting LG I'm still not sure if I'll ever see a newer version of Android. I've gone under settings to try to start the OTA (FOTA) but it says nothing is available. Anyone have any guesses?

      Depends on your country/provider...mine is UK/3 and they updated my G3 D850 about 3 months ago to 5.0 and it works super duper!
      Mine is the 16gb device w 32 gb sd card, & still have 14 gb free.

      download (lg-support-tool.en.lo4d.com) and use this simple software to get and install updates to your LG Mobile via USB connection, I didn't wait on T-Mobile got the G3 D851 Variant and got it so try this and see if there is an update for your variant, if there is it will download and push to your phone, please read before updating and as usual ensure battery is above 50% (*THIS WILL NOT IN ANY WAY ROOT YOUR PHONE OR IS A ROOTING TOOL OF ANY KIND*) Hope you get through, cheers

    • How to get an update of 5.0 on lg g3 international do you know?

      • Andres R. 3 months ago Link to comment

        In Settings, About Phone, check at top to see if update available in your country. I updated in the UK with Three as provider.

    Does anyone know if Foxfi will continue to work after this update, I am always hesitant to update for fear of it not working anymore..

  • So since the update my first phone failed completely and they had to send me a new phone and now it is very hard to even use the phone or even answer a call being as though I can't always turn the phone on. The lock screen won't even open up it just stays black while I try different combinations of pushing the power button and tapping on the screen until finally in some cases an hour later the screen will turn on again. I can't make calls or answer them while the screen won't turn on and I am disabled as well as I have a almost 5 month old baby! What if I needed to call 911? My phone is now useless! 😡
