Back in February it was rumored that Android 4.1 Jelly Bean update for Optimus L9 will be released in the second half of 2013. April 22nd brought this update, however in May T-Mobile paused its roll-out amid complaints of excessive battery drain and more from users. At the time T-Mobile said that the update was being paused so that they can “improve performance.” Android 4.1.2 build P76902f for Optimus L9 has now been rolled out for the carrier’s subscribers.
Users will be able to install this update over-the-air, a stable internet connection would be required.
