It looks like this update fixes the wifi bug. I uninstalled DNSet and tested by sending my self an email and sending myself a hangout message and they both came through. Finally! Thank you LG!

Not from what I've read.  It looks like the update adds a bluetooth button option to the dialer, the HD calling that's Verizon specific, and notification priority levels.  Some articles on the update specifically say there is no IPv6 fix and others just do not mention it at all.

Wouldn't expect much for IPv6 fixes until the next major update (if it even comes out and the rumors are to be believed).

From what I have read, there is no major OS update for the G3.  It won't be getting 5.1.1.  So you are saying Verizon is just going to leave us with a broken phone??

The notifications are working for me since the update.  I'm stoked.

Leave your WiFi area and then come back.  A lot of the issues had to do with the reconnect.  I would see occasional notifications while on WiFi, but it always seemed like just after a reboot.

I went to lunch and came back to my work WiFi.  Notifications are still working.  And my ISP at work has no working IPv6.  Man, I hope it keeps working.  It's fooled me into thinking it was fixed before...

I was on wifi at work where notifications never worked unless I used DNSet and did the update. The notifications started working there. Then I went home for lunch where notifications never worked and they worked there. Now I'm back at work and they work again.

Just installed it.  I can't believe it!!! It does not fix the WiFi sync problem.

Don't know, I may have jumped the gun.  It seems to be working at least for now..

It wasn't in the posts but after doing the update every gmail notification came back.  Maybe LG isn't so bad after all.

I saw that software update for my phone, and it concerns me. It concerns me because i and countless others never had the ISP problem(s) that so many of my/our fellow customers had.

Read the following article:

Comcast's wireless gateways don't play nice with Android 5.0 Lollipop, but Google's on the case

It's just that i've read many posts about those software updates forcing itself into customer's phone(s)

I'm concerned that if VS98524B is forced into my phone, it'll turn my G3 into what for me is a perfectly working phone into a piece of junk.

Ok. I bit the bullet and just installed VS98524B. So far so good. My phone is working just fine, for now.

It looks a whole lot like that update is more for VZW customers that have Comcast as their ISP.

Well I installed the update yesterday as I was having similar problems as discussed by previous posters (no notifications while on Wifi, battery drain, certain apps not working). Comcast is my home ISP as well. Well after updating my LG G3 with this latest update, my phone has never performed better. Notifications are coming through while on Wifi, my battery life is tremendous, I went all day without charging my phone, and now all my apps, including Facebook, are working seamlessly while on Wifi. Now I enjoy Lollipop on my LG G3!

This update doesn't do a thing to fix the wifi issues. I downloaded 24B on a factory reset clean phone twice and it didn't do a thing to improve the wifi. I'm on Crimecast and it's still slow as molasses, just as it was when the phone was first updated with Lollipop. Your notifications will come through alright, but wifi is still useless. This whole fiasco is actually making me think about doing the unthinkable, going back to Apple. As it stands right now, Google can't get their act together with updating these phones properly.

I would suggest resetting your ISPs router and your wifi access point/router if you haven't already done that. I had slow wifi with 23C and now with 24B, it's back to normal speed that I should be getting.

I like seeing all of the responses saying that this update seems to make our G3s better. Before I go ahead and accept any Lollipop updates, is there anyone else out there with input?

IT seems better. Phone is a little snappier too. I wonder if Comcast service upgrade helped to? Yesterday reset Comcast router and throughput is higher....

Pulled the update down this morning and all of my gripes about Lollipop have gone away.  Notifications are now timely and connectivity appears to be restored to normal.

I am reading the official release from VZW concerning the update.  It only mentions fixes to three things:

Bluetooth

Interruptions

Advanced Calling
