T-Mobile’s LG G4 getting H81110n update

lgg4IMG_5582

If you’ve got an LG G4, you might want to check and see if there’s an update available to you, because several G4 owners are reporting that there’s now one rolling out.

Many T-Mobile LG G4 users are now reporting that an update to build H81110n is now available. It was previously only available using LG’s Mobile Support Tool computer software, but now there are some folks saying that it’s going out over the air, too. The OTA update apparently weighs in at around 353MB.

As for what’s included, neither LG nor T-Mobile have posted a changelog yet, so we’ll have to wait for an official list of tweaks. However, one goodie that appears to be included is a patch for Android’s Stagefright vulnerability. Also included is a slow motion option for recording video and separate ringtone and notification volume settings.

So, G4 owners, grab your handset and head into the Settings app or load up LG’s Mobile Support Tool to check for an update!

Thanks, always smile!

    Ringtone and Notification volumes have been separated too!! :)

    • PJ

      anything else changed that you notice?

      • YankInDaSouth

        Touch screen seems more responsive

  • vince1228

    I hope it fixes the wifi issue with xfinity wifi services. Bc that vpn app dont let me use wifi calling.

  • Nate

    Nice!

  • Jeremy

    Hmmm. My G4 (got it about a month ago) is on that version but I haven’t updated it or gotten a notification that there’s an update.

  • mingkee

    I got mine updated to 10n and the touch issue fixed.
    It’s worth the update, and you can regain root after that.

    • francob911 .

      The screen touch issue got fixed??? Im about to return the lg g4 because it acts lile if i touch something while scrolling

  • Slow motion for video has always been there since I got my phone (beginning of July), but the ringtone/notification volume setting is new.

    • Eric

      The slo-mo video it shoots is weird though because unlike my Note 3 which truly shot 240 (somewhat crappy resolution) frames per second, and app saw it as that, these videos play back at normal speed in all other apps and on my PC except for the built in video app.

      Not totally sure what we’re getting here.

      • Even with the update, it’s still only 120fps slow motion. And you can take the video into an editor and slow it down.

    Can someone with an LG G4 help me out please? I did something… and I am not sure what I selected (or didn’t select). Under the Update center, then app updates, I clicked on the setting where you can select to update apps over wifi etc. as well as check when to update the apps… daily or every one or two weeks. Under those options it has “legal updates for app update”. I was messing around with it and no reading what I chose or un selected then hit ok. Now where is says “Legal updates for app update”… it is no longer highlighted and I can’t click on it. Could someone please tell me what this was/is for as I can’t seem to find anything about it online. Thanks in advance for any feedback!

    • JBLmobileG1

      Ooppss.. it reads “Legal Documents for app update” What is it for? How do you being it back or can you? Thanks again!

  • Kendal Boucher

    Alex Wagner The update actually weighs in at 1.66GB.

  • abe armendariz

    Since this update I get “Unfortunately, LGSmartCover has stopped” I have not rooted or messed with any settings. Does anyone know how to help me?

  • SocialTechFeed

    No update yet. :(

  • SouthernCanuck

    Seems like there was a radio update as well… mine now switches to band 12 more aggressively, which has made a big difference for data performance when I’m at work

  • dtam

    Wife got her update last night

  • dontsh00tmesanta

    flashed the kdz on saturday

  • dontsh00tmesanta

    Is there a changelog?

  • JBLmobileG1

    SOMEONE WHO PHYSICALLY HAS A LG G4 IN THEIR HANDS. PLEASE DO ME A FAVOR AND GO INTO THE UPDATE CENTER, CLICK ON APP UPDATES, AND FINALLY CLICK ON THE SETTINGS (THE 3 DOTS AT THE TOP RIGHT OF THE SCREEN) IN THAT SCREEN PLEASE CLICK ON “LEGAL DOCUMENTS FOR APP UPDATE” AND TELL ME WHAT IT SAYS. I UNCHECKED IT AND PRESSED OK WITHOUT READING IT AND NOW I AM NO LONGER ABLE TO ACCESS IT. THANK YOU TO WHOMEVER REPONDS IN ADVANCE!

    • thepanttherlady

      “You may amend the status of your acceptance from this menu. Please note you may be restricted to use our App update should you change your status.”

      • JBLmobileG1

        Thanks for the response. So by unchecking it and clicking ok I told them that I no longer wanted updates? I can still use their apps I noticed but I want to. I want to update too but it won’t let me click on it again, its greyed out.

        • PJ

          my “Legal Documents for App update” is just grayed out, you should be fine.. in the settings it asks you how often you want to check for updates, this is just for the apps listed on that page not the other ones you downloaded from the play store or android software updates.

        • JBLmobileG1

          Thanks PJ for more info. I actually set it to check daily for updates. I hope my LG apps still continue to update as new versions are released because I do use them quite frequently. In the past I have already have had quite a few updates to the LG apps that are installed so hopefully they continue when available. I was just messing with things hoping I could push the new system update through and being an idiot clicked off it and hit ok without really reading it. Weird though that it went from accessible to completely greyed out. You think you could change it back but I guess not.

        • PJ

          Worst case scenario you can always factory reset :)

    • Jorge Peirano

      • JBLmobileG1

        What is the screenshot of? I can’t seem to view it. Thanks Jorge.

        • Jorge Peirano

          How do i upload the screenshot to you? Apparently i dod it wrong.

        • JBLmobileG1

          I have no clue myself. What is the screen shot of and is your settings that say “Legal Documents for App Update” greyed out as well where you can’t even click on it?

    • turboboxer

      No need to yell bro

  • Troy Gossett
  • francob911 .

    Does this update fixes the touch screen issue????? Im about to return my G4 do to this

    • twomanychoices

      iv had my g4 for almost two months now and have never had a touch screen issue. I have read more then one review that this is a problem so obviously there a issue.. I wonder if this is possibly just a defect or defective component. As far as the update my unit seems to have had this update from the day I bought it. and just for reference I have over 100 apps and so on loaded in my phone no lag. oh and one other thing to mention is I own a note 4 and so far unlike most of my previous Samsung flagships I do not have any hanging when sending texts with the lg.

      • francob911 .

        You must be one of the lucky ones ..Thats weird my friend changed his g4 for an s6 and im about to do the same thing this is my 3rd phone just got the 4th today … The problem is when scrolling thru text it most of the times acts like if i pressed a website. 4 example the youtube app when scrolling down it acts like if i pressed a video… I hope this update fixes this problem

        • Jorge Peirano

          Yes, h81110n fixes all

    • Jorge Peirano

      Yes

  • 3165dwayne

    Still nothing here. Brown leather back model.

  • Elton

    Interestingly, my touch screen issue was fixed after I did a factory reset. I bought my G4 back in June, downloaded an update, and the phone was practically unusable due to the touch screen issue. I did a factory reset before taking it back to the store, and the phone magically improved substantially and the app lag went away.

    • John Wentworth

      I haven’t noticed any touch screen issues, still waiting for the update myself.

      • Jorge Peirano

        Yes, I plugged my phone to my computer had to wait a little for phone to download drivers and connect; once it did i also got option to dowload LG Bridge. On LG Bridge there is an update phone tab and it said update available. I updated phone and it fixed all problems, overheating and touchscreen problems too. No longer misses touches when i tap knock code and all lags when i scroll up and down on webb are gone

        • JBLmobileG1

          I tried updating through LG Bridge but it still says my phone is up to date!? I don’t get it because I am still showing H81110h with Security Software release as version 4. I am starting to not like LG. At least with Samsung you could update to the newest version through the PC.

  • Eric

    Wheeeeeenn??? Just saying.. I mean how many US, TMobile, LG G4 users could there possibly be that they need to staggers this release? Jeez. :/

  • Jorge Peirano

    How did you post that screenshot, I want to post a screenshot to the member right below to answer his question

    • Troy Gossett

      To take a screen shot on the G3,4 (possibly G2?) Push and hold power and volume down buttons at same time. Then you can share the picture like you would any other. I used G+ and shared the link here.

      • Jorge Peirano

        Troy, thank you for your responce! I did take the screenshot already i just cant figure out how to post the link? You mentioned g+, I am assuming google +. I did open google + and shared the screenshot there under public. But how do I share link here. Lests say I’m here and click reply, now I get join discusión, at this point how do I get and incert link?

        • thepanttherlady

          Upload the photo to photobucket or imgur or something of the like then post the link here. When I see it, I’ll approve it.

        • Jorge Peirano

          Ah ok thank you

        • Troy Gossett

          Once you have it uploaded somewhere public, you can copy the image URL from within the browser and paste it here. I happen to be at a workstation so the step was a little easier than if done with my phone alone, but it can be done on the phone just not from the G+ app.

  • JBLmobileG1

    So anyone else still waiting for the update? I keep on checking with no luck. I even downloaded the LG Bridge software to my PC only to be told I have the latest version yet its still the version ending in h and not n. Tmobile is really slacking with this update.

    • Fred K

      Same thing here. I did the same thing and downloaded the Bridge software. I dont understand when it shows on LG’s site that new software is available

  • Trevnerdio

    Had to use LG Bridge because as of 2:45PM 9/5 nothing has come in still. I hate OTA updates. What I’m hearing is that it’s a good update though, so I’m pretty excited!

    • JBLmobileG1

      I wish LG Bridge worked for me. Unfortunately it says I am up to date even though I am not. Anyone else having this issue?

  • John

    What states are you all in that received the update? I have yet to receive it. I keep checking for software updates but it says my phone is up to date. I’m on version H81110h . Perhaps the update was pulled back?

    • JBLmobileG1

      Same here… I am h and not n. I keep checking a few times a day but nothing. I even tried LG Bridge on my PC with no luck. I am in Nevada so I am also curious to the one’s who have recieved the update. I even pre-ordered my phone the day after they first started taking orders so it should be one of the first models that LG produced.

      • francob911 .

        Try factory reseting your phone and then check for updates .. Dont forget to back up your pictures!
        It worked for me

        • JBLmobileG1

          I am sure that fixes a lot of thing but you shouldn’t have to do a factory reset to get a software update. If thats the case I might as well go back to Samsung.

        • Yup, I had to reset my phone to get the update as well and I’m not happy about that at all!!!

        • Scott Carroll

          you didn’t HAVE to – you chose to. Different entirely. If you are unhappy about it be unhappy with yourself.

        • Stop defending a phone as if it has feelings. Smh….

  • Why was it necessary to reset my phone to factory settings in order for the update to show up? LG Bridge did not work either!

    • Brennan M

      Factory reset did not work for me.

  • JBLmobileG1

    As of the morning of 9/8 I recieved the update. Right before I went to bed I hooked my phone up through WiFi. So I am guessing in order to recieve the update you must be hooked up to Wifi perhaps? At least for me anyways, as the LG Bridge software through my PC, and checking manually, never seemed to work. At least I recieved it…. not really sure if I notice any difference yet. Maybe it helped make the screen and keyboard more responsive which would be a plus. Glad I finally received it though as I am hearing it is a good update all around… the only downside… it took a while to get.

    • Lee Bennett

      Yeah, my update wouldn’t download until I was on a wifi network.

  • John

    I received my update this morning. I did notice the touchscreen is more responsive so it fixed that issue.

    Don’t really notice anything else. Haven’t really checked. Just glad my touchscreen is working better.

    • 3165dwayne

      Same here

  • Lee Bennett

    I got the update a couple of days ago. I had to clear data for Google Framework Services and immediately shut my phone off. When I turned it back on, the update was there. Touch screen is much more responsive and I am not getting the blank/laggy homescreens I use to get when first unlocking or going back to my homescreens from an app. Wish they would have added 1080p recording at 60fps in the camera, but oh well. Overall I am very happy with this update.

    • trablezie

      Thanks,clearing framework data also worked for me to,i got the update now.

  • trablezie

    I also did the clear framework data,powered phone off and back on,while staying connected to wifi,then went to system update and yes it showed update ready to download,yes touch screen is better,also now we have separate volume control bars for ringtone and notification,im still looking for other things,stagefront virus is now fixed to.

  • 3165dwayne

    I finally got the update and so far the touch screen seems to be working well. Stage fright is also patched by this update.

  • thepanttherlady

    This isn’t the first time I have had to clear data from the Google Framework to get an update. The last time was the update to the Nexus 6.

    With that being said, both times I have experienced a temporary stall in my emails via Gmail syncing. I’ve had to do a manual sync. This didn’t last long and since I don’t use my phones for work, it’s not an issue for me.

    Please know that this is a YMMV situation. Please research and make an educated decision that works for you.

  • Rene Prado

    I got the update… Finally! Everything it promised to do… except my FM radio hardware is still not available to use, even after Legere promised to unlock our FM Radio hardware. :(

    Can we get an official response???

  • Paulo C. Perez Montoya

    Where’s the FM radio hardware?
