Lollipop coming soon to T-Mobile LG G3, Sprint Galaxy S5 Sport

A couple of 2014 flagship variants are set to receive Lollipop in the near future. T-Mobile product specialist Des announced that the official OTA for the T-Mobile LG G3 is rolling out beginning on April 7. If you are on T-Mobile and want to wait for the OTA you should receive it soon thereafter. If you want to get high on Lollipop right away, you can go ahead and install the update (5.0.1) using the LG tool on their website.


Once the device is connected with the tool running it may show that your software is up to date. If so go to options, then flash recovery. This will begin the update, which will bring you to version D85120b. Many have installed the update this way and reported that wi-fi calling and VoLTE are both good to go. Alternatively, if you want to get super high on Lollipop, you can root your T-mobile LG G3 and flash a custom Lollipop ROM! T-Mobile also mentioned that they are working on the Lollipop update for the LG G2 so that should be available to grab via the LG tool soon enough.


The Sprint Galaxy S5 Sport, Sprint’s version of the S5 Active, is also receiving Lollipop starting today. The update for this phone is number G860PVPU1BOC5 and brings Android 5.0 and all the new features with it to the S5 Sport. Sprint has included Samsung’s Reactivation Lock feature in this update. Reactivation lock adds another layer of security to your device, requiring your Samsung account credentials before anyone can factory reset the device. Who doesn’t lock more Samsung security features? Did I say lock, I meant love. In any event, go try to grab these Lollipop updates if you have either of the phones mentioned!

I fell in love with Android with the Nexus One release and realized that it was superior to iOS in all the ways I care about. I still use a Mac (and an iPhone for the camera), but my Apple tech products pale in comparison to my number of Android devices (watches, tablets, and phones). When I’m not rooting/modding one of my many Android phones or doing math/programming, you can find me taking in Phoenix Suns/Arizona Diamondbacks games in downtown Phoenix, and drinking good beer!"
