The guide for manual install is here http://forum.xda-developers.com/show....php?t=2699123


Big v thanks to @xdabbeb

Ok kitkat was pulled off the servers and xdabbeb was able to install. It successfully.

Kitkat hasn't come yet to the verizon model but the kitkat thread is too cluttered and confusing. A couple guys agreed with me that a new thread just for verizon users would be easier to follow so we don't get all the other info mixed in. So discuss expected release dates, what you think verizon will change, how much more boat they'll add (I'm being kinda negative About this) etc. And once it officially out then we can see if anything is different than the other versions since they tend to change it a little than other carriers. Maybe we'll get something nice that other carriers didn't. Who knows.

And If there's any verizon employees that's like to drop a hint for us. PLEASE DO we won't tell

I heard March 20 form a best buy employee who owns a g2. Don't really trust the accuracy but thought I'd throw it out there.

Thanks for taking the initiative on this. Sounds like it's not too dev friendly for the immediate future though. I wonder if 2nd init or kexec might be the direction to go.

Great job for starting this thread😄 wish someone would start a sprint only thread it's very confusing since there seems to be so many varieties of the lg-g2

maybe if XDA actually listened to it's members, we'd have had the G2 forums broken up into each variant as a separate board MONTHS ago....

I have a feeling verizon will keep the ugly blue icons. I would even settle for jb blue rather than the ugly ics colored ones ha ha

I think Google is requiring the white icons as a standard now but you never know with verizon lol. They seem to break all the rules especially with how different they made the g2.

The 20th date sounds reasonable. I hope they can get it by then because I hear lots of people estimating April but I hope they're just exaggerating Verizon's slowness

I would love the white icons. It's grown on me. The blue seams kinda childish
