lg v30 Oreo update

We talk about the software updates for the LG V30 here, including Android 10 and its eligibility, Android 10 custom ROMs, latest security patches, and yes, still, Android 9 Pie rollout. Here’s the release status of the V30 Android Pie update for each of the variants, including those at AT&T, Sprint, T-Mobile, and Verizon.


Latest news

October 08, 2019: After Verizon and AT&T, it’s not T-Mobile that is rolling out Android 9 Pie for its V30 users. Users of T-Mobile V30 are reporting that Android Pie is now available as an OTA (1.8GB) as well as via LG Bridge PC software.

T-Mobile LG V30 Android Pie

October 02, 2019: We’re talking Android 10 more than Android 9 Pie now, but for V30 users, last year’s OS update means more than anything. Today, the AT&T V30 users are getting the Android Pie update, finally. Coming in as software version H93130g, the update also brings the September security update and is available as an OTA already. If you are using LG’s V30 at AT&T, now is the time to check for a software update under Settings app > About Phone > Software updates > Check for Update.

AT&T V30 Pie update

September 16, 2019: After a long wait, the Android Pie update for the V30 has finally reached the US, starting with Verizon. More than several users have confirmed receiving Android Pie on their Verizon V30, model VS996. The update arrives as System Update 14 for the device. If you have the Verizon V30, it’s time you checked for an update. However, Verizon has not announced the update yet on its support page. [Update: Verizon makes it official.]

Verizon’s LG V30 gets Android 9 Pie update

Update [July 30, 2019]: Great news for LG V30 users. The Android Pie update was finally released today, although it’s limited to Korea and Europe only at the moment, software version H93030B. We expect the V30’s Pie build to become available for our friends in the US pretty soon. It may still take a few days to few weeks, but we’re closer than ever to see the Pie update hit V30 sets in the US, including those at T-Mobile, Sprint, AT&T, and Verizon.

Will LG V30 get Android 10?

The 2017 LG device has stood the test of time and is still one of the well-performing devices in LG’s line-up. It came with Android Nougat out of the box and is currently running Android 9 Pie.

As it has already received two Android OS upgrades, the chances of getting Android 10 are very slim. Though, with a good aftermarket development support, it may score Android 10 unofficially.

How to get LG V30 Android 10 update unofficially?

If you’re are confident about trying out custom software, make sure to check out XDA Developers’ ever-buzzing forum.

LG V30 Android 10 custom ROMs

Multiple developers have released Android Pie-based ROMs for LG V30. But they probably won’t have the same enthusiasm regarding Android 10. Considering how old V30 is, don’t expect a stable custom ROM before Q2 2020.

Though, Android 10 GSI has your back.

  1. I just turned 50 and have always had a smartphone since the Samsung whatever model with Windows CE probably released before some of you were born. I get the desire to have the “latest and greatest hardware and software” but take a step back (and a deep breath) and ask yourself in the context of your overall life, is it really THAT important? I too was rooting my phone (both iPhone and Apple for about 7 years) and installing custom O/S up to about 3 years ago. It was, I would say, interesting, not fun. Nice to have more control. But it sucked up a lot of spare time. I can honestly say I’m happier now not worrying about having the latest greatest phone and O/S version and not having the latest hasn’t affected my life negatively. It’s saved me some money upgrading to last years model! (But I also don’t look at my phone as some sort of status symbol which many younger people do these days.)

    I agree when you pay $800 for a device, they should support it up to 3 hardware versions later or about 2.5 +/- years. But practically speaking the device manufacturer and service providers only have the resources to test X number of different model phones. And you need to put yourself in the shoes of the service provider. If something doesn’t work right after an update, 90% of the phone users are NOT going to take a DIY fix approach and go discuss solutions in the forums. They are going to call and complain to the service provider and overwhelm their customer support lines and the company’s reputation is then damaged because most people don’t separate hardware from O/S from service provider issues – especially if they bought the phone from the service provider. It’s the service providers responsibility to “fix it.” So may it boils down to you can either pay $800 for your phone and $40/month for your unlimited plan, or, if you want the manufacturer, O/S makers, and service provider to support your phone for 4 years, you can pay $1,200 for your phone and $80/month for your plan. The companies that be already decided the sweet spots for pricing and support longevity.

  2. The latest system update for my lg v30 is awful. Popup ads all over the place, can’t answer a call w/o a popup ad, can’t read a text or email w/o pop ups showing up. It’s disgusting. Get rid of the ads, please!
