      No don’t flash the G2’s kdz. Flash the G Pro’s kdz file (E98820C_00.kdz is the exact filename)

    Phone got a new look with its new UI after update. But battery drains very fast without any usage. I did update using LG Support tool from my laptop. From OTA it shows 684 MB size, but from support tool update it was 1.7 GB size. Why this download size variation? How to check I have received all features of KitKat ?

        I did factory reset and still no improvement on battery life. I have to carry a battery pack with cable so I can recharge to make it through the day. I also have a charging cable in my car and several places I go. I try to keep phone on a charger when ever possible. 🙁

    Got the update about 3 weeks ago. Cut my battery life in half. With phone on doing nothing it will drop about 10% a hour. Was out the other day just listening to a podcast and my battery was down to 25%.
    Besides that I am happy. There was a problem restoring all the apps. I forgot what error message I got but I had to do a reboot of my phone 3 times to finish downloading my apps. I also lost my ring tone setting in my contacts. I did have to redo all my app placement on my home screens.
