Android Oreo Released for the LG V30 on Verizon

Verizon has released the Android Oreo update to the LG V30 on its network.  It follows the release of the update for the unlocked variant and is the first amongst carriers here in the United States to release the update.

The new build for the V30 on Verizon is VS99620a and it is a hefty 1.7GB in size.  You will need to download this update over Wi-Fi and will need to have at least 80% battery in order to install it.  You can expect a 10-15 minute install time once it is downloaded to your phone and you will need to reboot complete the install.  Once done, you will have all the goodies that Android Oreo brings.

The update is based on Android Oreo 8.0 and it comes with the February Android Security Update patch.  The fact that it is 8.0 and not 8.1 is significant.  The LG V30 was recently added to the Android Enterprise Recommended list and a key requirement was that the phones be updated to 8.1.  That hasn’t happened yet on the unlocked variants or carrier locked but it should happen soon.

If you have the V30 on Verizon, go to Settings>System Update to check for the update.  Verizon did not indicate that they were phasing this roll out so it should be available for everyone by this point.
