LG G4 Android Marshmallow update
Marshmallow has started to be released in the US. Sprint was the first carrier to get the update out, followed by US Cellular in mid-January. Head to Settings > About phone > Software updates to see if your device is ready to receive the update.
XDA Developer autoprime posted the stock Android Marshmallow firmware in October. If you're considering using the ROM, be aware that it is for the LG G4 H815, the international version of the device. Make sure you follow the instructions very carefully to avoid damaging your device.
As always with ROMs, we advise caution. Unless you know what you're doing, it's probably best to just wait a little while longer until LG rolls out its official version of Marshmallow, which should be any day now.
AT&T LG G4 Android update
AT&T hasn't rolled out the Android Marshmallow 6.0 update yet but it did issue an update that protects its devices against Stagefright though it didn't appear to contain any other system upgrades. It arrived OTA (over-the-air), so head to Settings > About phone > Software update page to see if your device is ready for the download.
If it's not, don't fret, these updates tend to roll out in stages, so yours should be just around the corner.

Verizon LG G4 Android update
