T-Mobile announces new LG V30 update


Good news, LG V30 owners. One month after your Oreo update restarted its rollout, a new update has been released.

T-Mobile has announced an update for its LG V30 that bumps the device up to version H93220j. The update is still based on Android 8.0 and includes “various bug fixes and system improvements.”

This update is going out on a scheduled daily limit in order to prevent network congestion, so it may be a few days before your LG V30 receives its update. If that limit is reached, you’ll have to check back the next day. This limit will be in place until July 31st.

If you’d like to check for the update manually, you can go into Settings > General > About phone > Update Center > System updates > Check for update. Alternately, you can try using LG’s Bridge software on your computer.

Thanks, Red!

    I’m really disliking this “limited updates per day” thing… If the network is built for unlimited, then what’s the problem? And if your using WiFi, there really shouldn’t be an issue, right? Just expressing frustrations, folks… I’m done, lol.

      Don’t worry. Not enough folks own a V30 for it to matter.

        That’s really a shame cause it’s a solid device I intend to keep for the next couple of years.

        Better than any Iphone. Only thing Samsung has on it is the screen and Samsung Pay

        Got the v30. Great phone. I’ve jumped between Samsung, Google, and back to LG.

      I never even got the restart update to my device, getting 8.0 using LG Bride was not a good idea.

        I didn’t get a restart update either but I don’t think the updated Oreo restart changed from the original update. Both firm wire versions were identical. At least that’s what I noticed with mine.

          That’s correct. The ONLY difference was their advisory to make sure the antivirus was updated (or you can just turn the garbage off).

          Lol, thanks @disqus_OyV6Kc99uW:disqus !

        LG Bridge worked great for me.

        • George Salcedo

          Mine has been wacky ever since 8.0, freezes up and loses LTE signal constantly. Can’t wait to fix it up with the updated update haha

        • darendt

          If after this update you still have issues, I would do a factory reset and start fresh.

      The network probably isn’t the problem, I’m guessing it’s the server(s) trying to handle the load. Would be nice to pump it out to a distributed network, but that’d probably be costy for a one-time download.

    I had the V30 and changed to the S9+, the V30 just had too many downs and glitches I couldn’t stand. I had issues shooting 1080p@60fps and 4k, I ended up losing some important videos which was the last straw for me but among other things were crappy speakers, the front facing camera sucked for a high end device when I opened the app drawer it slowed down and the widgets got pixelated, the wide angle camera didn’t have IOS like the regular camera and the screen didn’t seem bright enough in direct sunlight. I’m sure there were other things I can’t think of right now but bottom line is I’m much happier with my S9+ although it too has its downs as well but at least they’re ones I can live with. Gorgeous looking phone though, too bad it was half baked.

    I have the V30 which I upgraded from the s8+ and so far I like it. The battery life is better and for the speakers are better. There are a few things I don’t like but overall I am happier then with the previous phone. Not to mention the bogo from T Mobile.

    This update is huge (429.3 MB), it’s gotta have some major fixes in it. Hopefully this will fix the lag and System UI hangups created by the last update.

    It also updates the security patch level to June 1, 2018. This is the first time we received a security patch the same month it was released.

    The 6/25 update has a serious bug. It incorrectly redirects incoming text messages instead of to the default messaging app, it redirects to the baked-in app from LG.
