Update Verizon LG G4 VS986 to Android Marshmallow Official Update

One thing that I never understood about Android users is that they always try to install the latest version possible, in-fact I myself has always done that bus still has no idea why I always do that. Even if the device won’t receive the official update, everyone starts relying on the custom One, but one way or the other they will get the latest version on their device. For all the LG G4 users, the Android 6.0.1 Marshmallow official update has start rolling quite a time ago and OTA update will take its time to reach everyone around the world. However, one of the best thing about Globalization is that if the update has reached a single country and it is not an exclusive one, all the other users can update their device manually. Have done it before and will keep doing it.
