Why would you want 2.1 v10c? This version is from last year and has a roaming issue.
Well, mostly I'm trying to compare the differences between LG's software and stock android in order to figure out what changes they've made in order to make their phone work. The more versions I have to compare side-by-side, the better the chances are that I find those changes that are absolutely required.
It's not really that important, so if you're not comfortable with hacking up your phone, that's cool.
What you'd need to do is a nandroid backup. The easiest way to do this is to install a custom recovery partition using the instructions here: http://androidforums.com/getitnowmarketing/330813-all-one-recovery-thread.html
Once recovery is install, choose nandroid backup. This will create a folder on the SD card called nandroid. I'm hoping for a copy of the system.img file hiding in there.
Like I said, don't do it if you aren't comfortable with it. It's just that I have v10d and v20a files now, but no v10c files for comparison.
