Android 5.0 Lollipop Update for LG G3 Now Available in India

LG G3 running Android Lollipop
After rolling out the Android 5.0 Lollipop update for its G3 flagship smartphone in Poland ans South Korea, LG has begun rolling out the update to India.
Notably, the over-the-air update is not yet available to download, but the Android 5.0 Lollipop update can be downloaded and installed manually via the LG Mobile Support Tool. Caution: users are recommended to back up their data before continuing with the update method. The OTA update is expected to rollout to India shortly.
The LG website features separate links of the tool for the 16GB variant of the LG G3, and the 32GB variant. Once users have navigated to the corresponding page, they will need to select the Software Update tab in the Manuals & Download section.
To update the LG G3 to Android 5.0 Lollipop, users will first need to install the USB driver, before installing and executing the LG Mobile Support Tool (only available for Windows XP, Windows Vista, and Windows 7). Also recommended is removing the data card from the smartphone, and ensuring 'Mass storage only' mode (via Apps>Settings>SD card & phone storage setting) is not selected.
After that, users can connect the G3 to the PC with a USB data cable, and click on the Start Upgrade option (only clickable if an update is available) in the Mobile Support Tool. While some users report they are able to click on the Start Upgrade option, some report it remains un-clickable.
Unfortunately, no changelog has yet been provided by the company, or accompanies the above mentioned Android 5.0 Lollipop update method for the LG G3 via the Mobile Support Tool. Ahead of the Poland rollout however, LG had detailed some broad changes that would come with the update, essentially reiterating the changes the OS upgrade as a whole brings, such as Material Design UI, new improved notifications, Smart Lock, Android Runtime (ART) software improvements, and more.
Are you an LG G3 user in India? Were you able to upgrade your smartphone to Android 5.0 Lollipop using the above method? Let us know in the comments below.
