There would also be performance updates and you'll get more fps from a game.

You have been enlightened.
- Android keyboard
makes no difference we got the LG version
- Browser
browser does what i want already

Im not knocking 2.1 - I just think a lot is made of this update that most users wont really notice

As for apps - i havent come accross any that i couldnt have due to android version - Im not a fan of games but i can see why some would need a greater version of android

Just dont expect too much!!!

Now 2.2 would make all the difference - installing apps to SD card is something that I think we all would find useful!

Who knows - maybe LG will suprise us all.

I used a HTC tattoo for the best part of the last year and that was 1.6 but didnt have half the functionality of the optimus. Due to the screen size i couldnt get quite a lot of apps either - there was never going to be an upgrade to the tattoo which has probably given me a different perspctive on this debate.

Im happy that the LG provided me with bluetooth file transfer, better res screen - many more apps and games due to screen size, and the ability to switch from native android and the LG UI (which i quite like)

I see what your saying, but some features are better, like the double-tap zoom in the browser, I like that a lot because my old phone had double-tap zoom and it's really convenient.

I've come across lots of apps on AppBrain that I couldn't download because of the 1.6 compatibility.

And it's the end of the week and still no update, even though LGMobile Phone S/W Updater says 'GT540 OS upgrade guide (Software release soon)'.

i am not sure whether the update is available or not because i am having problems with the LG software tool thingy. sometimes it says there is an update and an updater opens up and starts analysing my phone but then stops at around 20-40% of the first step (depends on its mood apparently) sometimes nothing happens because apparently the drivers haven't been,installed properly and prompts me over and over again to install them. i ve already installed them over a dozen times. i ve also tried it on several different pcs with different results every time. i am beginning to think the update is available but this tool is just too crappy to use. what about you guys ? what is your experience with it? what does it say when you run it?does the start updating button ever become clickable?do the drivers install properly?

yes i got a similar message during one of my many attempts. i am not sure what it could mean since all phones are the same. mine isn't o2 or anything. i just bought the device off the shelf. my theory is still the same. the updater sucks balls!

How did you run that update? When I plug my GT540 into the PC and open up the LGUpdate Tool, it says my software is up to date (V10A). Mines from Carphone Warehouse so it's not locked on any particular network.

Just one thing I don't like about LG. You can tell whoever makes their software does not speak proper English, just look at the way the options are worded. This is so annoying

The only LG software or drivers i have installed, come with the pc suite iv below, just install the pc suite, then connect you phone and click check for updates, it will download any driver and flashing software it need, just follow the onscreen instructions.

LG Air Sync

for me its pretty easy. sometimes it says i have the latest version (v10d) therefore i dont need an update but sometimes it doesn't say anything but the start updating button becomes clickable and after i click it i get this window. after that all kinds of shit can happen. and yes all the engrish is hilarious! if you open the task manager you ll see the process names in Korean! nice touch!

That's what I've done already, all the drivers are installed along with the PC Suite but the updater doesn't seem to want to say if/when the update is coming.

You said you have V10D. Where's your phone from? Because my phone's from Carphone Warehouse and not locked on any network and it has V10A.

Well using this LG Air Sync didnt do any better. It says theres no response from the phone and nothing happens.It did try to install some drivers even though i had already installed them earlier.Maybe because my copy of windows isnt activated so the optional downloads service isnt working maybe theres something this thing needs that windows cant download.I dont see what else i can do

No i ve made sure its not in mass storage mode. By the way sync mode is that something i should be aware of? Theres one option under SD card and phone storage called Mass storage only.This is the one i unchecked to try and connect.

But anyway thats probably not the issue sine some times it works sometimes it doesnt and all that.

have you tried unistalling all the lg software and drivers, then re-boot and install only the pc-suite in the link below, I have used both Win7 32bit and 64bit and they spot my gt540 without any problems , but make sure your phone is not connected while you install the pc-suit software, then connect the phone and start the software.

anyways - I just hope LG give us a few prettier widgets like the htc ones when they do the update - the gallery widget and the bookmarks are not a patch on the HTC versions.

Also the HTC dialler is a million times better than the LG dialler - so maybe this update will have a lot more than I expect!

I just called customer support and more or less they told me that they have no idea.At one point they told me theres no update coming , ever.At some other point they told me its the carriers business to deliver the update and that LG has nothing to do with it.At yet another point they told me its coming, as stated, in September. Go figure

I expect nothing from customer support in my country, they are barely useful for warranty coverage. When LG releases the update, I will flash it. Until then, it's a phone, use it!

yes it definitely looks like it.Maybe its some custom rom.The optimus one and optimus chic are launching with 2.2 and they have the custom LG home like the GT540 so this doesnt look like an official rom

Actually if you read the comments it says its Android 3.0 beta but if you had a build of the next version of Android about which nothing has leaked so far would you just post a 2 minute video showcasing a wallpaper rotating app and not bother to mention anything about the OS itself? No way

hmm new problem, not sure if this is only happening to me but, I opened up the LGMobile Support Tool to see if there were any new updates and it took a while to load the program, so I thought there must've been an update to the program, but now my phone won't connect.. is this happening to anyone else?

It happens to me sometimes but i can fix it by restarting the phone. I ve also noticed that this problem only happens after i use a task manager to kill all running tasks. If i do that the phone cant connect until i restart it.

I don't use task killers, I've tried restarting my phone, I've tried with debugging on and off, I've tried leaving the phone in for a while and I've tried reinstalling the drivers. Seems like I've tried everything.. maybe there was an update to the program, now it doesn't want to recognize my phone.. I'll try on a different computer.

Hi all ! (sorry for my english...)

Androidplanet.nl has recently published an article dated Sept 22, saying that LG officially announced a 2.1 upgrade for GT540 cellphones before the end of the year !

I googled the web to find any official information from LG, as said in the article, with no results at all. Besides, I'm still waiting for an answer since I posted a comment to the journalist on Androidplanet.nl.

The information looks credible, even though it comes after many other promises of that kind, with no effects at all.

Here is the link to the article (use a NL > EN online translator) :
LG GT540 en GW620 krijgen binnenkort update - Android - Androidplanet.nl

Has anyone been told about such an annoucement from LG ?

Best regards.

Default 2.2!

Hey everyone,

I've made a post on this forum about getting 2.2 onto the GT540. It's CyanogenMod (if anyone is familiar with the ROM) and it's been successfully ported to the GT540. It works flawlessly with a few missing features, but other than that its amazing! Check it out! http://androidforums.com/lg-optimus-gt540/251202-cyanogenmod-6-1-android-2-2-here-gt540.html

The bad news is, is that Quarx (the person from 4pda.ru who was porting this ROM) has stopped working on the ROM. His GT540 broke about a month back, and he's decided to stop working on the ROM and he's posted the source code on github in hope that someone will continue his amazing work!
