lg g2 lollipop kdz firmware

Good news for everyone who owns an LG G2 with D802 model number. LG has officially released the Android 5.0 Lollipop update for all LG G2 (D802) users and it can be flashed by everyone because it is a KDZ file. KDZ are the files that contain the firmware for LG devices.

Someone noticed the new files on the LG servers and realized that they were based on Android 5.0 Lollipop and were for the LG G2 variant. This means that LG is starting to take software updates seriously. At first, the company released the Lollipop firmware for the LG G3within one month and now, it has seeded the Lollipop KDZ firmware for the old flagship device, the LG G2.

The LG G2 is one of the most popular phones from LG that has increased the popularity of the company by offering a unique design with buttons on the back and the latest hardware possible. When the phone was originally launched in August of 2013, it came with Android 4.2.2 Jelly Bean. A software release updated the phone to Android 4.4 KitKat.

Now it is time to update your phone to the greatest and latest Android 5.0 Lollipop firmware. Since the update is in the form of KDZ file, you need to have a flashing tool. Follow the guide below to learn everything you need to flash Lollipop on your phone.

  • Valter Baptista

    hi i have two questions. First, i come from a aosp lollipop ROM, can i still install the KDZ with no problem? Second, is there a way to root the newest version?. Thanks in advance

  • Fidel Pablo

    how long does this take?

    • Fidel Pablo

      stuck in software extraction

      • K.B

        did it work

        • Manas redij

          did it work fidel ?

          • Fidel Pablo

            yup

  • Shkodran

    So, basically I can flash any KDZ file if it is intended for the d802 version, right? Doesn’t matter if it’s the black or white version? Also, there are versions like V30A and V30D and probably there will be V30B and V30C? I don’t want to brick my phone… So, does it cause problems if I install one of the roms no matter the version of the rom? I have the D802 16 GB version btw.

    • You only need to download the 16 GB variant KDZ file and install it on your D802.

      • Shkodran

        Yes I understand that, thank you. So it doesn’t matter which kdz file I choose in terms of the country, as long as it’s meant for the D802 16 GB version, did I get it right? So flashing let’s say Spain Open 16 GB KDZ (v30a)for the D802 will work and not cause problems, right?

  • K.B

    does your lg g2 need to be rooted?

    • No. It does not matter if it is rooted or not.

  • Martin

    Can you explain what to do with the other options in the flash tool? Just leave them untouched or what? Also, what do I do after I’ve clicked CSE Flash? Press start now? Could you please explain in more detail?

    • Hi Martin, no need to do anything else. After CSE flash, press the start button. If another window appears, click OK.

  • karik

    i have d80220h-EUR-XX, can i do this by kdz and choose which file ?

  • Rista

    Hi, i downloaded rom from this thread http://forum.xda-developers.com/lg-g2/general/official-lg-g2-android-5-0-lolipop-t3046813 and, my question is can i install that rom on my 32GB LG G2 D802, cause it doesn’t say is that rom for 16 or 32GB?

  • Tom

    Hey Ronaldo,
    I have a question concerning getting into download mode. I am following your instructions – Volume + pressed and than I connect USB cable but the only thing I get is LG logo and after that battery status. Am I doing something wrong or missed some step?
    Edit: LG G2 D802 [not branded]

    • Yes, to enter download mode, press and hold the volume up button, then connect your phone to your PC but do not release the volume key.

      • monza96

        I also have this issue,I’m press Volume + button,THEN connect the USB and all i can see is LG logo then the battery

      • Redline

        I also have this problem, I’m holding volume up while plugging in the phone, the LG logo appears then it shows me the battery indicator, all while I’m holding the button

  • eworp

    I have a ITA-NoBrand LG G2 D802 with KK-20H. Can I use this Rom or it’s only for Vodafone Carrier?

    • Yes you can.

      • Filip Vladislav

        Can i flash on D80220h??

  • Rista

    Does these roms for Vodafone have Vodafone’s bloatware or they are clean? I have 32GB D802 and i don’t want Vodafone’s apps since they are not my carrier.

    • The only reported bloatware is a single Vodafone app.

      • Manohar Priya

        i have airtel sim can i still install this kdz

        • Manohar Priya

          Because in the flash tool 1 option shows CDMA.

    Hi, Ronaldo! I did exactly everything you wrote here, but, unfortunately, an error happened in 28%, after recognition and the phone’s checking. When the download progress hits 28% (I believe this is the third step)… 🙁
    Do you have any idea of what is happening? Can you help me?

My device is stock and never root or customised outside official rom. Pls help with the link to kdz for my device at Cyberman5145@gmail.com.
