I just came across this tutorial, whoever wrote it claims that they rewrote the steps for the lollipop ROM from XDA

http://www.upgrade-lollipop.org/mp3-0/lg-g-flex-5806.html

"I rewrite this tutorial from forum.xda-developers.com :"

only a few comments tho, in broken english. and i dont see any link back to an XDA article..... i sure cant find it here in the forums so i suppose either i'm blind or this is some BS.

Anybody know more about it??

Seems a little suspect, if there's a working lollipop ROM you'll see it here first. The poster also doesn't state what variant of g flex it's for. If you're that curious tho go ahead and flash it. Make sure you do a backup and know how to recovery your device if things go south. My guess is the files you download won't be a ROM and/ or it won't flash at all. Be sure to report back should you decide to go thru with it.

Already seen this article on two websites.
But didn't find a link on XDA so I thinks it must be a scam

FAKE

It's a fake blog site saying they have lollipop for many popular phones (they have many different fake posts). They try to gain credibility from saying it's a repost from XDA dev but the rom isn't here ... why because it's all BS!

The "comments" under the "blog post" are actually an image, you can't reply to any one of them.

They make their money via the download links forcing you to sign up three times to premium SMS services costing a fortune. I doubt the dl is even a real rom of Kitkat even! No point trying it out.. it's a waste of time! :eek:

Of course it's fake. If you see something like this that they ask you to do this and that to get access to the file, it's fake. You're a moron if you really went through all that believing it's real.

There are several other sites too, which the same person seems to be operating.
