Android 6.0 Marshmallow firmware hits the LG G3 D855. Following the footsteps of LG G4, that received the similar update last month, G3 users can now get excited as the official OTA update has hit the device in Poland. Even though the update is running slow and over the air, here we have the stock 30B firmware files, listed in the download section, for you. This will take your LG G3 to official Marshmallow firmware in no time.
Courtesy of autoprime, a recognized XDA forum member, the files are now available as both, TWRP flashable zip files and stock KDZ file. The flashable zip files consist of system and boot images that make the minimum required Marshmallow firmware and can be flashed directly using a custom recovery like TWRP. The OTA update is running slowly and in stages across the globe. Hence, this is a great deal for those who want to taste Marshmallow even before it hits the device. Check out the source XDA page from below for more details and updated files.

More testing is required for the 30B modem.
