    Decent sized update, but also not sure what all is in it. I'm working on uploading it now, will be posting in the zv5 thread in the root section.

    If you are rooted and/or have custom recovery installed, do NOT install. At best, you will lose root. At worse, it will brick your phone. One person has been bricked, so no, it's not speculation, although it hasn't been determined if there was an error in the update or not.

    Probably the custom recovery not properly flashing something. I would think tge the asserts in the updater script would prevent it from installing with a modified system.

    I don't know what else this update brought, but my system was switched to art instead of dalvik. I had problems using art before so i switched back a month ago. Those bugs seem to be fixed with this update.

    Yes please let me know. I personally think LG is being a pain in the a$$ everytime someone finds a way to root they roll out a new update disabling it. I took it because I thought it was 4.4.4.. Or maybe 5.0 Just 4.2.2 still.. Now I have to wait for a new method for exploiting root, silly me. Not to far from now Sprint VM BM pretty much every company announced android 5.0 for the LG volt which I was hoping got rid of the ugly LG Ui but probably not. Getting a moto G soon because LG can be such a pain.

    I updated... could care less for root (if there is no root vulnerability, it means malware/viruses can't damage my phone). I just want more stability, less apps closing for shiats and giggles.

    Were you rooted? Did you have a custom recovery installed?

    nope, like I said, I could care less. I rooted back in zv3, only to restore with the carrierless zv3 rom, then I updated to 4 and 5 seeking better memory handling.

    Not seeing this update on my Sprint Prepaid phone. Do I need to do something to see the update? Still seeing v4.

    It probably just hasn't been pushed to your phone yet. Updates don't usually hit everyone all at once. First, that would be a huge hit on their servers. Second, if there was an issue, they would have a much bigger mess on their hands. I never got the zv4 update before I did the rooted update.

    Okay. Both Sprint and Lg still show zv4 as the most recent update. Still no word on the actual updates as part of the zv5 update?

    First a question: I assume this discussion is about an update for a NON-ROOTED Volt. Is this correct?

    If the above is correct then I think I know why we should be getting this update (although I have not yet gotten it). I have Samsung Galaxy Tab Pro 10.1 that has been running 4.4.2 Kit Kat since I bought it. According to the buzz on several forums that tablet is slated to get 5.x, Lollipop. But also according to the buzz there are several things that have to be updated within Kit Kat BEFORE it can be updated to Lollipop. A while ago my tablet received a large (around 200 MBytes) OTA update which installed without a problem. However the version was still 4.4.2. It seems that was the update to Kit Kat that's needed before going to Lollipop.

    So I would surmise from the above post that this update may be the same pre-Lollipop update to Kit Kat as I got for my tablet. This also would imply (if all these assumptions are true) that we will be eventually be updated to Lollipop.

    That's a nice theory. What was changed in the update you got on your tablet?

    Just curious does the phone have to be activated or at least connected to Sprint network to receive the OTA update? Mine is using wifi only with no Sprint signal, it says ZV4 is already the latest and all other updates failed to authenticate.

    Correct, you won't get updates on an unactivated device.

    Hi bg4m3r,

    From the user's point of view absolutely nothing!! People who seem to know said that all of the changes were internal changes to the OS. Kind of surprising since it was such a large download of about 200 MBytes which implies that the entire OS image was changed. But I can verify that there was nothing different that I could see. I think it was also supposed to fix some bugs but I had not experienced any of the reported bugs so I could not comment on that.

    I should also note that my Sammy Tab Pro has still not updated to Lollipop but the rumors said it wouldn't happen until Jan or Feb.

    Aside: I'm glad I found this forum and the specific section on the Volt. I always find forums like this extremely helpful!!

    Gerry

    P. S. Its around Noon on Wed and I still have not gotten that update!

    Interesting, I have two Sprint Pre-Paid Volts, one on Ting and one on RingPlus. The device on R+ received a message to update LS740ZV4_08_to_ZV5_07, but the device on Ting did not, even if you check for the update?
    Still no actual word on what has been updated?

    yea ive noticed nothing better or worse from the update, looks like just some standard upkeep.

    Pfoneguy, that seems to be the norm, to not overload their file servers they do the updates in batches.

    Just took a HUGE update from LG, took about 10 minutes and now my phone is at Software Version LS740ZV5.

    I merged this in with the existing LG Volt update thread.

    I haven't read of anyone else experiencing this problem so I suspect its source is something else and just coincidence

    But my voice recognition started acting up (badly) since the update; anyone else; possible alternative causes/remedies?
