Yeah, it's a shame it's not 2.X but beggars can't be choosers! Hopefully we'll get a cooked version of 2.0 from Zacpod.

I am half happy !

Since Adobe will issue Flash only for 2.1 and not for older versions... I guess we will stay behind everybody else for a while...

What a pity Rogers....

I've been using the iphone for a few years now and I don't miss Flash on the phone. TBH, I don't think the Eve would have the horsepower to show Flash in a usable way.

I am also not sure about the "horsepower" to handle it... Some video sites REQUIRE a Flash player but Flash is only one thing among all the reasons I am half happy with this upgrade to 1.6. The version 1.6 is getting kind of old in a world where new versions get published every few months.

But I guess it is better than nothing that is why I say that I am "half" happy but I am a bit disapointed at the same time...

I think they should just put out the latest one for the eve, by the time spring comes there will be many more updates, and after months of waiting we will get 1.6 and everyone else will be running 2.?? They said spring for the update so why not 2.1? This way we will be getting a almost current OS and will not be so far behind, I will feel like I am running Windows 98 and everyone else is running XP. LOL

Somebody out there likes you! According to the LG booth at the MWC in Barcelona, 2.1 is coming to the GW620 "in the next few weeks".

Yup, just saw that too.

Oh well, 1.6 is a great gateway into getting 2.0 running as the kernel is the same, so less tweaking for the experts.

I just spoke with LG today and the tech I spoke with said the 1.6 update was supposed to be out at the beginning of April but didn't happen, so hopefully by the end of this month or early May. <fingers crossed>

I have been copying stuff about the Eve for about a month now before I bought the phone and I noticed on another site (not sure which one, sorry) that said the following:
"Just a quick note - in another of the Android developers forums the hackers are quite convinced that they'll have a functional android 2.0 for the Eve within a couple of months! BUT!! IMPORTANT!! YOU MUST NOT UPGRADE TO 1.6 if you plan to use their hack to upgrade to 2.0. This is because the "secret code" to get to the root menu seems to have changed between 1.5 and 1.6, so you wont be able to hack 1.6 until someone leaks that code...
Just a heads-up :-) "

Not sure if that is correct or not but I think I will hold off for a while on the upgrade until I can find more information.

The code for the 1.6 that's out there now has been found. It's on the XDA Wiki.

Alrighty I just got off the phone with LG canada support and I was told that 1.6 will be released by the end of spring and he also told me that the EVE will not get an update past 1.6 due to the fact that there is not enough internal memory for anything over 1.6. Now, that seems a little weird to me since guys here have been able to get 2.0 running, minus some driver issues. Is this true or is this tech blowing smoke up my *#@ ?

I think some phones from other brands with less internal memory have 2.1 on them, but I might be wrong...

Default android upgrade

Hi this is answer on my e-mail from LG Canada regarding to android upgrade
(recieved from LG 14th of August 2010)

Hello michal, thank you for contacting LG Customer service.

On behalf of LG Canada, thank you for your inquiries regarding the LG Eve. LG Canada has been working to release the Android 1.6 OS upgrade for the LG Eve, which is now expected to be delivered to Rogers for testing in early September, 2010 due to internal delays. Once certified by Rogers, the upgrade will be made available for download from the LG website and will require a PC sync. We appreciate your patience and thank you again for your inquiries.

LG remains committed to investing in the Android platform and will have some exciting innovations for you this year. However, a 2.1 OS upgrade for the LG Eve will not be made available as the device cannot adequately support the features associated with it.

Regards
LG Customer Service
LG Canada

That is interesting...I work for Rogers and have spoken to quite a few people regarding the 1.6 for the eve...I keep hearing it's not coming however with this bit of news I hope I am wrong...I have several phones...LG eve, Iphone, Crack berry and a few others and think the Android O.S is the most promising...My only regret is getting the eve...No support is a real bummer...Look at the HTC's...everybody under the sun has upgraded their phones...and the LG owners are left holding the bag...Still not sure what to buy next for an Android phone...I find it hard to find one that really rocks...I will cross my fingers for the Eve...if not going to sell it for sure...If anyone hears anything please keep us updated and I will do the same...Cheers..

Andy

Yup, no news there.... my question is how long will it take for Rogers to release the update? I think I've read somewhere that the HTC updates are being dragged out for a long time by the Rogers people before release. I guess we will just have to be patient. Still enjoying my LG Eve in the meantime.

Well a friend of mine has the HTC Magic from Rogers and he is still waiting for the update as well.

Not sure if you guys know yet or not but there is a working image of 2.1 for the Eve now. Some of the features still aren't working properly but i'm sure the 2.1 image will be well completed before Rogers decides to make its customers happy!

Where can I find a link to the 2.1 image? I'm willing to try anything.

The sad part that I wish the upgrade will "brick" the phone. That way I'll have a good excuse to buy a new phone.

My next phone will be anything other than an LG. Their commitment to upgrades and more importantly bug fixes is terrible at best.

I want to know your thoughts of the LG GW620 (Eve) because I think this phone looks really cool and I want to buy it, the specs are good it's just I'm quite annoyed by the fact that there is no android upgrade(any upgrade would do for me, 1.6, 2.0 .etc) I was also thinking about the HTC Touch2 (don't get it mixed up with HTC Touch 2 pro) and the LG GT540. Which do you think I should get?

There are three reasons to buy the LG Eve. Keyboard, keyboard, keyboard.

That's it.

The OS feels clunky, the touch buttons for home and back are too sensitive, the battery life is terrible, and it still crashes, and hangs, even after the official update.

LG has been promising 1.6 for well over 6 months, with no sign of it.

There is no way I can recommend this phone to anyone. In fact I would recommend against ANY LG android phone unless you are happy with an outdated OS and almost zero bugfix support.

Default No Support for Win '7

I was reinstalling the updater on my new laptop and was having troubles... so I dashed off a note to LG asking what the problem was. The answer was:

"Unfortunately the current software does not support Windows 7 and as such you cannot update the phone from your PC."

...er no Windows 7? Keep up with the times LG! I too am losing my enthusiasm for my Eve.

I've fixed the battery problems by installing a system killer and can go for many days without having to charge (I don't use data and bluetooth or wifi only occasionally). I'm used to the home buttons and rarely mis-cue. I've had to pull the battery maybe 3 times over the past 5 months. It works fine for me for what I want at this point in time but I will be looking at another manufacturer for my next Android.

I'm afraid to expose myself to the new ones 'cause I'll want one but can't afford one at this time. I've got an HTC Touch that I'm thinking of rooting for fun and would like to try the Eve but I'd hate to brick it at this point.

@ Cmiller82
I dont really mind no update for the phone and also the eve that I want to get has a warranty so any bugs then I'm sending it back for a replacement and if I'm lucky a refund
I just want a phone which is good at texting, keyboard and is good for social networking, SNS/ that bar which comes down to show you Facebook status . Is it good for those reasons

@Amazon Annie
How long does the battery life go for in days/ hours and also system killer is from the android market or what?

I agree !!! I gave up on LG and got a Acer Liquid. LG has done nothing but lie about this release. Every time I call they have NO updates about this phone. I'm never getting another phone from LG !!

Which do you think I should get?
If I were you I would stay aware from the EVE, you're better off with an HTC since there are more likely to update the firmware.

LG GW620 - User opinions and reviews
The people at gsmarena say they have got an update!
But then again there is someone else who is saying the update is coming in September :/. It's nearly September so our patience could pay off.

How long does the battery life go for in days/ hours and also system killer is from the android market or what?
I have gone for a week without charging (but little use) but often recharge every 3 or 4 days just 'cause I should. Again, I'm not using data and use "System Panel Lite" to kill all the apps.

It depends on use - if I'm out geocaching and using my phone as a database then it could drop faster. I tried a few other app killers but this one seemed to fit my needs and it's *free*

Thanks for the quick reply! You have just made me make my decision, I'm going to get the Eve because battery life like that is great for any phone let alone for a smartphone http://androidforums.com/images/icons/droids/happy.gif
My phone at the moment is a Ku990 and it has the worst battery!

Just remember though - I don't use data and don't turn on wifi or bluetooth unless I need it. It's mostly a calendar and database with the bonus of a phone. What I like most is the full keyboard. I don't know that I would jump on the Eve bandwagon though - as they are not going to upgrade beyond 1.6 so many apps will not be available.

I went through the same thing with my iTouch - I have ver. 1 and can't get a case for it or get the new apps as it's dated and won't be upgraded...ever.

Sometimes it doesn't pay to be 'cutting edge'. For the money I'd go with a Samsung "S" or whatever flavour is out there now that will be updated beyond 2. I got the Eve 'cause I got it second hand on Kijiji so the price was right.

They really don't know... It's not their fault, they are not told all the details about software updates for all phones, the Eve understandably is not a "big" thing right now, they are really too busy answering questions about iphones right now to actually do anything else.

My friend who works there (we all have that friend who works somewhere...) says there is no news about software updates ever through customer service, and if there is any, it's after the fact.

Just update to 2.1. it took me exactly 5 minutes to update to the 2.1 firmware (a few more minutes to backup my apps & data). so far its working great and seems much less buggy than the 1.5. only issue i have right now is with the camera and with the way the guys over at openetna are going i'm sure that will be fixed in no time.

yep. I believe in the last release there was an issue with downloading from the market, but that has been fixed.
