    Whenever there is an Oreo update for the LG V20Thanks AD

  • 05/03/2018 00:51:04 mahboijoe says :

    Actually, go ahead and try this. Go into your settings and switch to either CDMA or GSM according to your carrier. That fixed it for me. After you have used it for about a day, then you should be able to switch it back to global and it will work.

  • 01/08/2018 21:14:40 lgfirmwares says :

    Master in your country can try unlock your phone.

  • 12/09/2017 01:24:54 Nodscene says :

    I ended up using the LG software on a PC to update the firmware and it didn't wipe the phone. It also has a newer firmware than what's available on this site which is nice. Current version is n and was available Dec 7th so may be worthwhile using the Samsung app to back up the phone and then use it to automatically update the firmware.Phone seems a little slower right now so we will see if that improved.

  • 12/09/2017 01:02:05 nickbransford says :

    It will wipe your phone. You should also unlock the US996 before flashing otherwise it'll "convert" it to a US Cellular phone.

  • 12/09/2017 00:27:11 Nodscene says :

    Thanks, I guess I'll have to go that route. Hopefully there isn't a lot of bloatware and it doesn't wipe my phone.

  • 12/09/2017 00:26:39 Nodscene says :

    The phone says there is no OTA updates which is ridiculous. This was last years flagship phone and no OTA updates and obviously hardly any support. Doubt we will even get Android 8.1 which is inexcusable. Really wanted to eventually upgrade to the LG V30 but that's definitely not going to happen now. Who wants a phone that doesn't get proper support by the company that sells it. Even my US Note 4 was getting security updates constantly OTA and that's an old phone. At least they seem to care about even their older phones.

  • 12/08/2017 05:24:41 aleksandrshlotov says :

    I need a advice. Now my LGV20_966 are locked. I bought on AliExp but when I set my sim I got his result. I live in Cambodia and I want know which firmware i should set up for unlock and work on local nets?

  • 12/08/2017 04:42:49 G0nza78 says :

    Wich one its the last one?

  • 12/03/2017 22:42:49 lgfirmwares says :

    Use contact us form and send phone IMEI we check your region,

  • 12/03/2017 16:20:04 gonzaloouterelo says :

    Ota says you have no new firmware, and i dont know what its the last to mi 996? Can you tell how compare this roms to the one it has installed?

  • 11/14/2017 19:40:06 nickbransford says :

    As mentioned below, you can flash the US Cellular firmware to an unlocked US996 V20.

  • 11/11/2017 19:58:09 lgfirmwares says :

    Because LG not release update. We firmware fun club and post firmware when receive.

  • 11/11/2017 19:38:10 Jason_MSFT says :

    Why are there no updates for the US996 since January 2017? One of the reasons I bought an LG to begin with was in hopes of receiving updates outside of a carrier-provided phone.

  • 10/27/2017 22:28:25 nickbransford says :

    US Cellular firmware works on the unlocked US996.Use LGUP and flash a .kdz in "upgrade" mode to return to stock.

  • 10/27/2017 22:26:47 nickbransford says :

    Why do you want old firmware?

  • 10/27/2017 22:26:27 nickbransford says :

    You can flash the US Cellular .kdz to the unlocked US996 and it'll work just fine. I'm in Canada with the US996 with Fido and am currently running a clean flash of the US Cellular 10k .kdz without issue.

  • 09/17/2017 11:15:00 lgfirmwares says :

    Update by OTA or send phone IMEI using contact us form and we check latest firmware version for your phone.

  • 09/17/2017 03:09:58 Nodscene says :

    I just purchased the US996 version and will be using it in Canada. I'm shocked that there were no firmware updates needed as the phone is about a year old and was a flagship model. How do I get and install the latest version (if any) of software/firmware updates.

  • 08/21/2017 09:41:13 lgfirmwares says :

    Maybe in your phone old firmware but we haven't older then US99610f_00_1205.kdz.

  • 08/21/2017 01:52:22 palle_p says :

    How come theres no firmware when my phone have production date of 2016/12/01 and release date 2016/12/01. Must have had some firmware on release?

  • 08/20/2017 06:19:57 professerbutterbean says :

    well that's unfortunate.

  • 08/07/2017 16:03:51 lgfirmwares says :

    We haven't old firmwares.

  • 08/06/2017 23:30:11 professerbutterbean says :

    Can you post the UCL firmware from before December 31st?

  • 07/29/2017 09:27:00 professerbutterbean says :

    How can I flash the KDZ after unlocking the bootloader?(us996)

  • 06/02/2017 23:36:47 lgfirmwares says :

    Hi, Send to us your phone IMEI and we check. For send use contact us form.

  • 06/02/2017 19:53:16 DrPhant0m says :

    Is this for the unlocked US996, or the US Cellular US996? Does it matter? I'm looking for a way to fix my (unlocked) US996 to recover from a bad ramdisk, which is preventing me from booting after updating my su binary. Thanks!
