Important instructions

  1. For step number one you have to do as follows: plug the smartphone to your laptop; use, for this procedure, the USB cord that ships in the same box as the handset. Then go to your comp; from there, copy the Android 4.2.2 ROM zip file and the Google Apps pack one and move them to the memory card root of the Nitro HD P930.
  2. The second step will tell you the following: switch the phone off, unplug it from the computer and enter it into Recovery Mode. If you’re unsure how to do this, follow our lead: turn the Nitro HD P930 on while keeping selected (at the same time) the buttons for Volume Down and Power.
  3. Now do as the third step indicates, which is this: when you’ve entered the Recovery Mode, you should perform a phone’s data wipe before anything else.
  4. Step four will ask you to opt for Flash zip from SD card with Power, then use the same key to select this option: Choose zip from SD card.

Now do the same as before so that the Google Apps zip file gets to be flashed on the Nitro HD, as well. Go to +++++Go Back.
  6. Step six will need you to choose the system restarting; the smartphone is going to enter a rebooting stage. When that’s done, the handset shall feature a shiny new Android 4.2.2 AOKP Build 5 Jelly Bean. To make sure of its existence on your LG Nitro HD, go to Settings and then to About phone.

Now that your smartphone sports this update, you will be able to enjoy various benefits. Some of them are the following: Quiet Hours toggle, New Navigation Ring configuration menu, S Pen support for Note IIs and Traditional toggles.
