I only have one LGUP in that thread, if you read the instructions. It says to use the Dev Patched LGUP. You will never use any "regular" LGUP in any of my KDZ threads. ;)

Uninstall any prior version and follow the Installation instructions.

Yh but no-one has given a set date on the OTA? Maybe it's released in batches?
You're making no sense. OTA is out. Yeah, ALL OTA is released in batches.

Did you not read the post just above yours? Please go read it before replying again.

He obviously got the OTA in a batch, and then you popped in and started asking about OTA and then batches. The post just above yours!

You can download and install UPDATE right now, by flashing KDZ. So there's nothing stopping you.

See the India Pie KDZ thread.

What in the world are you talking about?

You're being risky with partial image OTA update. The safe course is full image KDZ.

I don't risk my phones with OTA updates. Four people bricked their phones today with pie OTA updates (for Verizon VS996). They should have waited for KDZ! No one bricks their phone with KDZ for their variant.

LG Bridge even uses KDZ. (Temporarily downloads full image KDZ to your PC, then uses that to update your phone). It's like a "manual" OTA update, or you can download KDZ yourself from LG servers and flash it in Dev Patched LGUP via Upgrade mode. The KDZ we have are from Official LG Bridge servers.

Because LG servers are sometimes slow, we also have KDZ mirrors. You can verify md5 to make sure you have same copy.

    TWRP FLASHABLE "ROM" versions of full image India KDZ

    For those who have bootloader unlock and TWRP, @seadersn has made a TWRP-flashable "ROM" (KDZ in TWRP flashable file form). This continues the TWRP-flashable KDZ tradition which has been available for US998 and Europe H930, to update easily to newer stock firmware using TWRP. He's gallantly expanding to other variants.

    He will also do future updates when they arrive.

    See top of post #1 of this thread for the TWRP flashable link. Please go to his thread to thank him. He's putting a lot of effort into making TWRP flashable KDZ for our phones.

    These "stock" zips are for people who have TWRP and want to update to newer stock firmware very easily. These are not conventional ROMs that any variant can flash. They are merely TWRP flashable versions of full image KDZ. If you live in India/Philippines/Indonesia and have an H930DS this "EAS" region firmware is for you. For instance it would (should) give you India Jio VoLTE with a Jio SIM card and is currently the newest firmware available for that region.

    This "ROM" (really TWRP flashable KDZ) is also probably compatible with other phones like Europe H930 as some have flashed other H930DS firmware onto H930 -- but they have slight bugs like showing phantom 2nd SIM card. However someone flashing this "ROM" over H930 should have very good reason for doing so, not just for fun.

    Like tech_infinity said, LG hasn't abandoned the V30.
    Just the other day (and today on another variant), someone got a security update for this month on /r/v30, you hear the same stories on the v20 subreddit.
    There's KDZs on lg-firmwares.com for V30 variants that are less than a month old. I don't know what variant specifically the Indian users have, but it'd be worth checking there for what the latest is.
    Link (replace 'h930ds' witih your variant): https://lg-firmwares.com/lg-h930ds-firmwares/#tab=firmwares
    The security updates are still coming, but it's unsure with feature updates.
    I don't know if stock users will ever get Pie, with Android Q just around the corner, that'll be 2 major versions behind if the V30 doesn't get pie.

    There's various regional H930DS. India is part of the EAS region, which includes Indonesia and Philippines. For some reason the last update for them in November 2018 was never publicly released as full KDZ. Very strange.

    And for all the various H930DS there was a large gap in updates. However just this month Hong Kong H930DS received new firmware with LOTS of improvements. I'm pretty sure this will now roll out to all the other H939DS.

    https://androidfilehost.com/?fid=1395089523397908084


    India H930DS CAN flash that Hong Kong H930DS firmware (all H930DS firmware are compatible with other H930DS) -- but India Jio carrier users will not have VoLTE. Jio VoLTE is only available on "EAS" region H930DS KDZ (or TWRP-flashable zip based on tht KDZ).

    Here's the change log when US998 got DTS, so I'm assuming it's the same for this HK H930DS 21W, which now has DTS framework:


    change log:

    - DTS: X 3D stereo effect function has been added.
    - New Always On Display options
    - Selfie camera portrait mode
    - Improved accessibility.
    - Improved keyboard performance
    - Improved the delay of keyboard input when installing multiple market apps at once.
    - Photo display error in some apps since Google's latest security patch has been improved.
    - Improved to keep app aspect ratio settings after app updates.
    - Improved the phenomenon that fine lines are displayed on some screens when power saving mode is executed.
    - Google Security Update has enhanced your phone's security.

    Most of the list is found here in the link below -- plus the AOD and selfie camera portrait feature are from public reports. The AOD I verified myself, but the selfie thing seems to be subtle.

    Also with root you can fully enable the awesome LG DTS 3D stereo with equalizer. Works on both wired and wireless (Bluetooth) connections.

    https://forum.xda-developers.com/lg-v30/how-to/enable-dts-3d-stereo-lg-v30-variants-t3887139

    DTS works over Bluetooth FYI. So does the equalizer. I wasn't aware of this.

    Got it to work on my H930DS. Thanks for sharing. The equalizer and DTS worked on both wired and wireless headphone if you're wondering. It's a really nice combo.

    What do they have against the H930DS?

    Sent from my LG-H930 using Tapatalk

    I don't know, but I have a theory. First, some information...

    If you go to this site and look at all the various regions' H930DS firmware, you'll see EAS (India/Indonesia/Philippines), AUS, ARE, GCC were last updated in early August. HKG was mid-August (August 16). Then others like SEA, KAZ, TWN, CIS, 8WN, 9SG were all the same date -- on August 24.

    The file name has the date the build was "created", but that doesn't mean when it was RELEASED. They were tested AFTER the build was created, then released. But still ALL the H930DS in the world -- all those regions -- last had updated builds in August.

    Except for Hong Kong (HKG), all the various regions seem to be released in two waves (early August, late August).
    • 8WN and TWN (August 24) have EXACTLY the same file size.
    • CIS and KAZ (August 24) have EXACTLY the same file size.
    • 9SG (August 23) and SEA (August 24) have EXACTLY the same file size.

    Same with many of the early August releases -- same EXACT file size for two or more regions, even though different regions. So, some are probably all identical, but just name differently? :rolleyes: (KAZ and CIS are for former Soviet/Russia affiliated countries. 8WN and TWN are both somehow Taiwan connected. You see my point.)

    2) I see the same file size similarity for several of the "August 24" regions back on "May 26". But the "early August" regions actually got their previous update "May 30" (except for India which for some reason got separated from the other EAS region countries for that release; unless India users were savvy enough to download EAS KDZ released outside of India).

    So, my conclusion is ONE team is devoted to H930DS. In May, they batch built ALL countries/regions on May 26 and May 30. However, for August, they tried to break it up and do early August (4), mid August (1), late August (6). Again, this is build creation date, not actual release date -- but they are roughly tied together. "Release" (partial image OTA, followed by full image KDZ) is usually within 2 or 3 weeks of build creation. Some of the "August 24" builds were actually released in SEPTEMBER.

    But why the CHANGE from one large batch release (end of May) for ALL H930DS to different stages (3 stages in August)? Why? Don't know.

    Then, something happened in November. There should have been either 2 or 3 waves of build/released throughout November (if they followed the August plan). What happened?

    My theory is LG H930DS team may be ditching the "stages" and going back to one batch build week -- since so many are the same image. In doing so, they have totally discounted the "early" August build dates and their timeline is now centered on the "late" August build dates -- and thus they are going back to one large batch release all the same week? This would mean 11 region/country builds were all created the last week of November, are being tested, and will be released soon (partial image OTA, followed by full image KDZ). So, EAS, AUS, ARE, GCC and HKG will all be OVER the 90-day mark. But SEA, KAZ, TWN, CIS, 8WN, 9SG will not.

    If another two weeks goes by with no H930DS, then I don't know. :confused:

    EDIT: India Jio VoLTE is available for H930 21W. Thanks to @[email protected] for the discovery!
    _________

    It's very frustrating how LG is ignoring the Indian variant and still advertising their newer phones extensively. Pretty disappointing that they make phones with such well balanced hardware and features but don't back it up with software updates.

    There was updated firmware for India H930DS with November 2018 security patch, but for some reason it was only on new phones sold -- not an OTA or publicly released KDZ. Very strange.

    As you know, an update will be coming this month for India H930DS.
    January 31, 2019:
    i communicated with lg security team. they told me that the next update will be on march for lg v30+ indian variant

    That's pretty crappy! From March they'll push it further to Q3 saying that they're releasing Pie anyway but, we all know that won't happen.

    If you don't have Jio and need Jio VoLTE, you can always install the recent Hong Kong H930DS 21w firmware. Released in March 2019, it has January 2019 and a lot of improvements. That's what they will be giving all H930DS eventually when the updates roll out. (which is why the March 2019 news above seems on point.)

    All H930DS firmware is compatible with all H930DS phones. The only problem is only EAS region H930DS KDZ has India carrier Jio VoLTE. But before India H930DS got Oreo, many India users flashed other H930DS firmware and even H930 firmware to get Oreo before LG India finally released it.

    For those who are rooted, you should even be able to flash the very recent H930 Open EU 21W TWRP-flashable zip. Again, though, Jio users won't have VoLTE.

    EAS region H930DS update should be coming this month.

    Oh thanks for clearing that up. Then i am staying away from the unlock and root. Not gonna try it. I really need my jio Volte more than oreo. I cant lose it. Hope some indian dev takes notice.

    Everything is working - dual sim, jio internet after root and bootloader unlock. For volte to work on jio one has to install jio4gvoice app and that's it. You have a daily driver and more flexible smartphone.
