LG started rolling out the Android 4.0.3 update to the G3. Until now, the new firmware is available only for Polish and South Korean aircraft, but other countries will probably soon follow.
The update brings the software version to M500WKXUBND9. The changes are similar to those of previous updates from other LG devices. For example, the software would run smoother, the icons in the status bar are now white and the battery life is improved. The manufacturer has also added support for wireless printing.
The software is available via the ‘Software Update’ feature on the device or via LG’s update program Select. Initially, the new firmware was available only for the South Korean version of the tablet, but Poland soon followed. This seems like a good sign for our country, as the Polish unit is an international model, just like the Dutch version.
Update: It seems that the 4.0.3 update can now also be rooted already! This went extremely fast, and we didn’t expect it to be released so soon. So if you made up your mind and you told yourself that you want to know all about rooting, then make sure to root 4.0.3 as well!
LG has been more in the news for the last few months with the rollout of KitKat updates. Last month, the manufacturer began updating the G3. A test version of an update for the first G4 was also leaked. In February, the company released a list with American planes that get the KitKat software.
