LG V10 Nougat update & Firmware: Verizon releases VS99027A update

Update [April 12, 2017]: Verizon is now seeding the latest security patch to the LG V10. Arriving as build VS99027A, the update is being pushed over the air. We’re not entirely sure if the update installs the March or April security patch as Verizon hasn’t mentioned so, but it should be either of the two.

Update [January 11, 2017]: Verizon LD V10 firmware build VS99025A KDZ now available for download. The build comes with December security patch for the LG V10.

Update [December 14, 2016]: A new update carrying the software version H90021x is headed towards AT&T V10 users starting today. The OTA, sized around 29MB, is already out, and it patches the V10 with November security patch.

AT&T V10 November patch

Update [October 12, 2016]: AT&T is now distributing a new update as an OTA, whose software version is H90021w. The update installs the September security patch on your V10, while updating the security version to MDF v2.0 Release 2. And, that’s it.

Update [September 29, 2016]: T-Mobile has confirmed that the LG V10 will indeed get the Nougat update, and that LG has started working on it. The carrier marked the LG V10 Android 7.0 update as ‘Manufacturer development’ stage. Next step towards release will be ‘T-Mobile testing’ which basically implies that the OEM has made a build form its side, and has forwarded it to T-Mobile for testing. After this comes the release stage, of course the final stage, when you get to taste the Nougat update as the OTA rollout begins.

What do you when could we see the LG V10 Nougat update getting released?

Update [August 23, 2016]: LG V10 over at AT&T is receiving a new update today, one that enables Wi-Fi calling on the device. The update comes with software version H90021v, and is updated with March security level patch — which is old, as we are in August and this is a monthly thing.

There is nothing else part of the changelog, but the update still comes pretty hefty at 368 MB. Maybe AT&T and LG have fixed some bugs and issues here and there, but they don’t think those are worth becoming part of the changelog.

To update, look for the system updates section under Settings. Make sure you are connected to Wi-Fi network if you want to save your mobile data.

Anyway, as the device is already on Marshmallow since H90020j update, it still runs on Android 6.0.

If you are wondering when the big update, the Android 7.0 Nougat, would release for your V10 over at AT&T, well don’t have high hopes in this regard. Seriously!

It took LG and AT&T good length of time to update V10 to Marshmallow — the update was released on April 21, when the same update is out for Nexus devices since October 5, that’s a delay of whopping 199 days (disgraceful?). And you know what, the Android 7.0 update is out for Nexus devices already, and you can even download Nougat OTA for your Nexus device now.

So, even though it’s a given that V10’s successor in V20 is release with Nougat pre-installed — which is better than V10 as it wasn’t packing in Marshmallow upon launch — and thus chances of V10’s own Nougat update become brighter, but we would still hold out for Q1 release at AT&T, because it’s AT&T. The international V10 could get Android Nougat before the end of 2016, though, and only if that happens, we would hold out for Feb-March release for AT&T LG V10.
