For those who cant wait for OTA Marshmallow update for the D858hk you can manually update you phone. Visit this official link on LG's website, select the 'software update' tab and follow the instructions.
Just update manually to Android 6.0. It runs flawless. Give it a try. Worth it.
Qasim Ahmed, 27 Feb 2016I am not an expert. I can not think of any other solution.Thnx bro. At least you tried to help...
to all those having D856.
as far as ROM is concerned you can flash custom Android Marshmallow rom on your phone as D856/7/8 are same no difference only regions and bands.
but to flash KDZ you will get error as I dont have d856 but i tried on vmware you can flash it on D856
As you said to try and flash d858hk kdz on d856. Will it brick my phone?
I do know that the bands are the only difference in these two models but still is there any chance of bricking.
If not i will flash.
Thanks. I know i sound like a dumb but actually i am afraid since i hardbricked my xperia.

One thing to note:
When you install drivers thru mobile.
It shows on mobile screen that installing drivers but actually it isnt installing.
After clicking install drivers you have to go to my computer and then on removable drive and run setup.exe.

I flashed his phone to mm using uptool.
Use uptool its easy.
I had the same problem but i did what i suggested you and it worked.
I would advice you to use uptool because it does all the steps automatically including download mode. BUT INSTALL UPTOOL DLL FIRST AND THEN UPTOOL.
I hope that uptool would work if flashtool isnt working for you.

Uninstall lg uptool and all lg drivers.
Then install lg drivers using the phone itself by going into usb options and install pc softwares.
Then install lg uptool dll and then uptool itself it should work.
I fixed this way.
