Just found my way here through another post, might give rooting my son's LG a go. Can't lose anything as its on the window ledge gathering dust he hates it that much.

Its not an official update, but the guys over at Openetna (openetna - Project Hosting on Google Code) have come out with a 2.1 release for this phone. and it works very well. Its still a work in progress and as a result there are a few bugs (my video camera doesn't work but the camera does for example), but all in all its much better than the 1.5 release that the phone comes with. Its very easy to install the update as well. Only thing is, if you don't have a Linux box you can't really backup your old 1.5 firmware (nandroid is not supported on windows). The update is good enough for me though, so I won't be going backwards
