How To Capture OTA Update on Sprint LG G7 ThinQ
The most basic and easy way to upgrade your Sprint LG G7 ThinQ is to wait for the airborne software update. It will knock into the device on its own. It's fairly an automatic process, but sometimes the automatic update gets stuck. You may not get to see the update even after weeks of the rollout of the software. Here you can search for the update on your own and capture it as well.
To do it, go to your device Settings > General > About phone > Update Center. Then tap on System update> Check for update. If the new software update is available it will show up with the recent changelog and the build number G710PM14b. Then just tap on Download to initiate the update process. Keep in mind to charge the battery of your device up to 50% to avoid power related issues. After the installation, you will be prompted to restart your device. Doit and the device will boot up with the new patch of February 2019.
