    You can get lollipop on it very easily by flashing one of the ROMs linked to in this thread - http://androidforums.com/index.php?threads/852247/ - It does say newbies read first :)
    How much experience do you have with this stuff? If you need any help just ask.

    Be aware, however, that this is not an official update and things may not work correctly. Read the info in the individual threads for details.

    I cannot find much info on whether or not LG dropped support or not. Can anyone confirm LG has stopped supporting the LG Volt 1 on android upgrades?

    LG and other company's do not support low end entry devices really long. This device is over a year old. That is when company's usually stop supporting low end entry devices. They focus on the mid range and High end devices longer. @ShapeShifter499 and @guttersnipes199 .

    LG has waaaaaaay too many devices to make changes to their budget devices.

    Btw Volt 2 is lollipop. They make more money by selling multiple devices with similar features but different hardware.

    There's no official update, but we have mostly working ROMs here. Check the all things root guide.
