LG Optimus G Android 4.1.2 Jelly Bean OTA update rolls out in South Korea

lg optimus g2Recent reports suggest that LG Optimus G Android 4.1.2 Jelly Bean update has already been rolled out, at least, South Korea. This is apparently a part of LG’s promise to roll out update for its newer devices in early 2013. In its bid to make better its presence in the Android market stronger, it cannot neglect the need to update its devices to the latest version of Android.

South Korean owners may start receiving notifications any time now to trigger the update process. LG’s website suggests carrier-specific updates are now ready and it is up to carriers when they will start and how they roll out updates. More often, roll outs are done in batches considering it is going to be a major one (from Android 4.0 ICS to Android 4.1.2 JB).

Based on history and LG’s habit in rolling out update for its devices, it would take a month (or two) before an update would be rolled out to other regions outside of South Korea. So, U.S. LG Optimus G owners need wait a little longer for the official Jelly Bean update.

According to reports, version 4.1.2 JB update will be rolled out over-the-air (OTA) and will bring many bug fixes and performance boosters on top of Jelly Bean features any Android user knows about.

Optimus G comes with premium specs but was released in August 2012 originally running Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich. U.S. carrier Sprint pledged to push update in December but it seems like February is more realistic period for the roll out after this development.

Many Optimus G owners are now enjoying custom Jelly Bean ROMs for their devices after XDA Devs released a handful of custom firmware for the model. If you are one of the people who are willing to take a different (yet a little risky) route to bringing buttery smooth Jelly Bean firmware into your device, you may need to visit XDA forums for some instructions. Otherwise, you’ll continue waiting for the official update.
