LG V30 ThinQ Android 10 update available as Pixel Experience & Arrow OS custom ROM
LG unveiled the LG V30 ThinQ back in 2017 and has completed its update cycle of receiving two major OS Android updates. The device is currently running on Android 9 Pie.
And the device is no longer supported to be upgraded with the Android 10 update, even though it packs a capable processor. But, thanks to the open-source nature of the Android platform, third party developers are here to the rescue and there are two new custom ROMs, available unofficially for the LG V30 ThinQ based on Android 10.
The custom ROMs that we are talking about are the popular Pixel Experience and Arrow OS ROMs. Both the custom ROMs are now available to download with the latest security patches and new features for the LG V30 ThinQ.
Talking about the new updated Pixel Experience ROM for the LG V30 ThinQ, both the Pixel Experience and Pixel Experience Plus Edition ROMs are now available unofficially for the device.
For those who do not know, the Pixel Experience, as the name suggests, brings in all the features of a Google Pixel device including all the GApps like YouTube, Google Maps, etc. along with all the Pixel goodies like launcher, wallpapers, icons, fonts, and boot animation.
The difference between Pixel Experience and Experience Plus Edition ROM is that the Plus Edition provides more customization options. If you are interested in installing the Pixel Experience ROM on your LG V30 ThinQ, then take a look at the known issues and the changelog of the latest update:
