Owners of an LG Optimus L9 smartphone on the network of wireless carrier T-Mobile can now download and install the Android 4.1.2 Jelly Bean platform release on their devices, the operator has announced.The new OS release has started to arrive on devices earlier this week as software version P76920f, and should no longer pack the issues that determined T-Mobile to pull the plug on its rollout before, as PhoneArena notes.
The OS upgrade is being delivered to users over the air, which means that they will receive a notification on their devices as soon as the software is available for them to download.
“Beginning July 10, the LG Optimus L9 will have a software update to Android version 4.1.2/ Software P76920f via Over the Air (OTA). This update changes the OS to Jelly Bean and includes security enhancements,” the wireless carrier announced on its support website.
On the site, T-Mobile explains that the new Android 4.1.2 Jelly Bean update for the LG Optimus L9 is available for all devices running under firmware version P76920d (Android 4.1.2) or version P76910g (Android 4.0.4).
The OS upgrade comes in a 355.7MB package for all smartphones with firmware 10g to 20e loaded on them, and as a 44.1 MB download for 20d to 20e devices.
Before proceeding with the update, users should back up all data on their devices, to make sure that no important files are lost in the process, although the operation should preserve all of them.
Furthermore, they should make sure that the battery inside their smartphone has been charged at least at 50 percent.
As soon as the notification on the availability of the OTA update arrives on their screens, users should follow the on-screen prompts to install it. Additional info on the update can be found on this page on T-Mobile’s support website.
