    How soon can the USA Nougat kdz image be posted?

  • 05/18/2017 16:23:34 sam_earley says :

    Yes, the Nougat firmware is RS98821a, for the US Carrier Unlocked RS988 G5. Hopefully someone will be able to post the KDZ file. I unfortunately flashed the above RS98810h file last week, and even though it is Nougat, it doesnt work right, as LTE won't locked, and uses HSPA 99% of the time. This is because the 10h file is for a carrier called Brightpoint (which I never heard of).

  • 05/17/2017 00:59:56 nicholastimpf says :

    Yes we could really use the nougat firmware for the USA rs988 i believe the firmware is rs98821a

  • 05/12/2017 07:43:37 sam_earley says :

    The RS98810h is for the Brighthouse RS988 branded G5. I tried it on my "Unlcoked RS988" and it does not work with AT&T or T-Mobile 4G LTE, as it keep going to 3G HSPA.

  • 05/10/2017 17:02:52 lgfirmwares says :

    I think Nougat for RS988 start from 20 :)

  • 05/10/2017 10:38:50 sam_earley says :

    I believe the one marked RS98810h from 4-27-2017 is Android 7 Nougat.

  • 03/30/2017 12:08:25 lgfirmwares says :

    We don't know :)
