consulta para chile

Finally we have Lollipop! I've did this 2 days ago and the phone works perfect although i'm from Chile and the indonesian firmware runs correctly so :D:D:D:D
I only hope that some developer can find the way to enable recovery :(
Is not possible to root the phone yet?

Amigo. También soy de chile. Si cargo este firmware, podré usar el chip de Falabella móvil? Compañía acá en chile y me funcionara el uso de datos?.
Gracias por su gentil respuesta

Hi im from panama. i have d693 version single sim. I tried with all versions d693, and none of them worked for me, then i tried with the d690 version and this does work well for me, the only problems are that it does not bring the Spanish language and brings functionality to dual sim and I hate to see that extra icon.

Im already looking for an solution for this problem. I would like to have the correct kk version for my model :crying:

Gracias por la información, ya me uní al grupo, al parecer la actualización solo ha llegado a mexico via ota. Igual ya agregaron el kdz V20a LGD693N lollipop a la pagina lg-phone-firmware.com voy a intentar si instalando esta versión me permite regresar a mi versión d693 kk (no se si lo has intentado?), de momento no quiero lollipop o no hasta que tengamos TWRP para instalar el xposed...

Edit: i fixed my problem. i installed kdz V20a LGD693N lollipop from lg-phone-firmware.com and now i can downgrade to d693 kk :)

Yeah, that's it, I'm going back to 4.4: LG did a pretty **** job with this port of lolipop, and this phone basically hasn't devs, so I can't stand without xposed. I think the worst thing I did in this year was to buy this phone, should have bought the Moto G, it cost less and offers much more :/

    Upgrade LG G3 Stylus to Stock Lollipop Official

    by:

    Apriansyah Bintang


    Alhamdulillah, those were the words in my mouth when it landed on LG G3 Stylus "in the middle of the fence." Finally "google potion" has come to us. Ok do not dwell upon this subject anymore! let's rock. But, there has to be understood first before upgrading this device to you who are still newbie :

    A. COMMON QUESTIONS

    1. Is the stock firmware of Lollipop are official? yes.
      screenshot_2015-05-06-17-01-22.png

      screenshot_2015-05-06-17-01-12.png
    2. If the firmware are official then why can't upgrade via On The Air (OTA) / automatic updates of device? not yet, because even though official however allocated for regional Malaysia, while Indonesia or other countries untill the author post this article currently there is no clarity when it will be given, only the sweet promises from the LG. CAUTION: now you can upgrade to Lollipoop via On The Air (OTA).
    3. Is the manual upgrade as way below will shorten the life of our device ? Nope, there is no relation.
    4. Is the manual upgrade as this will void the warranty ? of course, but do not worry just flash again to Kitkat then it will go back again to a virgin state.
    5. Is the upgrade Indonesian Firmware must be via On The Air (OTA)? nope, you can flash it, and the link of Indonesian firmware is in the under point A. UPGRADE PREPARATION.

    B. SPECIFIC QUESTIONS

    1. Is using the firmware will be a significant improvement ? not entirely .
    2. Is 3g signal is more stronger ? the author use “tri” and “simpati” cards. The signal of tri in kitkat for Bekasi (west java, Indonesia) area’s only 1-2 strips, but in lollipop at least 2 strips and 4 strips at maximum. While simpati in kitkat and lollipop both 5 strips.
    3. If we use the Antutu Benchmark then what is the score? If the Kitkat ranging from 17,000 to 18,000 so if Lollipop minimal ranging from 19370-20447.

      screenshot_2015-05-06-21-57-39.png
    4. Does performance increased? I feel it is a litte bit increase.
    5. Is the battery getting longer ? a little bit different with kitkat, it depends on usage.
    6. Is interface (user interface ) to change ? not significant, may be only in screen lock, recent, navigation key, which changed to the style of Lollipop .

      screenshot_2015-05-06-09-58-28.png
    7. It will support USB On The Go ( OTG ) ? no, not yet.
    8. Does the RAM increased ? nope, there is no change, but multitasking becomes better if the entire animations in our device turned off.
      screenshot_2015-05-06-10-36-13.png
    9. Does it affect internal memory becomes more space ? nope, even on the contrary, the Kitkat internal memory which is used for sytem amount 3.7GB but at Lollipop reach 4.21GB.
      screenshot_2015-05-07-00-10-47.png
    10. Is there an Indonesian language option ? Yeup, even the choice of languages becomes more choice.

    12. Does rooting the device must be? Nope, doesn't.
    13. Does unroot the device must be? Nope, doesn't.
    14. Would the device can be rooted ? Yes, only one methode for now, use king root version 4.0 : www.kingroot.net
    15. Is this upgrade will delete internal memory ? yes, it will. Than backup first please.
    16. Is this upgrade will delete external memory ? nope.
    17. How lerge is the size of the firmware in a KDZ ? 893MB.
    18. Is the pixel density will increase ? nope.
    19. There Is bugs on Lollipop ? Yeup, GPS not working properly and there is no solution yet..
    20. Is the result of photo more better ? a little bit increase about 5-10 %, a better result when the light is less when we using the kitkat with a flash lamp then the result becomes chaotic, ugly saturation, blur. But now it is litle bit better.

      Compare the photo above is taken from the stock camera of LG G3 Stylus Kitkat when the light level is very lacking at 08:00 pm ; the left does taken using blits (flash lamp) while the right photo does not use blits.

      Now compare the photos below was taken at 10:00pm with stock camera of LG G3 Stylus lollipop in the same condition; with a worse light at 10.00 pm, the left does taken using blits (flash lamp) while the right photo does not use flash lamp.

    thanks ;) worked on my g3 stylus (d690n) gives the same error above and my gps works.
    anyone sucessfully rooted it?
    lg one click root failed for me :'(

    I was with the Kingroot (the link is on the own post), then I flashed the rom again and it's not working anymore. Funny.
    I got root with iRoot too, but even the own iRoot apps couldn't got root permissions, which means it couldn't gave permissions to any other app too.
    I guess that even if you get, you won't be able to update the su binaries easily, so you will have to get used with the Chinese apps.

    Gps is working fine to me either, seems even faster than before.
