T-Mobile LG G8 ThinQ now getting security update


The LG G8 ThinQ is starting the week with a new software update.

T-Mobile is now sending an update to the LG G8 that bumps it to version G820TM10o. The update is 218.2MB and includes the September 1, 2019 security patches, which is a big upgrade from the July 1, 2019 security patch level that the G8 was on before this update.

TmoNews reader Ronald received this update over the air last night, so if you’ve got a T-Mobile LG G8, you should see the update hit your phone soon. You also have the option of checking for the update manually by going into the Settings app on your phone, tapping on the “General” tab, and then selecting Update center > System update > Check for update.


Thanks, Ronald!

    Good, because knowing LG’s track record, this phone won’t be receiving Android 10 until almost a year from now.

      And what is this super worthwhile feature in Android 10 that will make phones with all prior versions usesless? Will we no longer be able to watch cat videos on YouTube? Does Android 10 let you watch the cat videos twice as fast? I can’t recall anything really worthwhile new since about Android 5.

        I don’t disagree. Android matured a long a time ago. There are no new features that I absolutely need. At the same time, it isn’t unreasonable to expect an OEM to roll out a major update in a reasonable time frame–especially when some already do.

          I visited my mom in July and her LG G6 hadn’t been updated because she doesn’t know how. It had over 20 updates. The security patches update more than just security – the settings window changed several times (which was confusing) and the the launcher changed several times as well. In the end it looked and worked exactly like my V30.

          I think the updates and revisions you actually need are getting added to the phone.

          I’m not sure what you mean. I don’t own an LG phone, nor would I ever buy one.

          You get a lot of upgrades in the “security updates” that actually enhance the functionality of the phone. You might not notice incrementally, but over two years, the phone look and feel is much different, just from the security updates.

        As you wrote below,it is not really the new os,that ppl want,it is the security updates ppl want. The last update the V30 got was March of this yr. I am using it as a backup/phone with my free line.
