Default Optimus V Software Update from VM

Some of you may have received a text from Virgin Mobile regarding a software/security update for the V. Looking through their Facebook page, it is legit.

LG Optimus V Software Update

However, there is some concern over whether this is a good update to install. Some are saying that it could prevent rooting, if that is something the user intends to do down the road. As for people who already have rooted handsets, it might be a good idea to skip this update for the time being, or possibly for good.

here the word on... | Facebook

Anyone else know anything about this update?

Another warning from LG Optimus V Modding:
[Warning] Do Not Install Virgin Mobile Security Update!

You will most likely be receiving a message from Virgin Mobile soon, stating that a security update is available for the VM670. You would be wise to avoid it for now!

This update will remove root, replace your custom recovery, and install a radio that currently is only known to be compatible with the update it comes with.

Give the devs a week or two to investigate this package, and we might find something useful in it.

Id guess its related to the new limited "unlimited plan" changes and tethering if anything.

It's probably being confused with the update called My ID or Mobile ID, which is specifically for the VM PCD Venture. That update has nothing to do with the OpV.

There is an update for the V which changes the firmware to VM670ZV9.
Because the OTA is still broke they have been leaving text messages that read like this:VMFreeMsg A security patch is available for ur phone. Go to virginmobileusa.custhelp.com/app/answers/detail/a_id/5662 for info & instructions on how to download
If your rooted it will replace root. No tethering or hot spot either if you were 2.2.1

If you have no plans to root your phone, there is nothing wrong with installing this update.

If you ever think you may want to root your phone, do not install this update! I'm sure we will eventually find a new root exploit to use, but till then, treat this as if it were a virus.

I've gotten the text message twice. I'm rooted and on 2.3.7 - I tether and hotspot frequently though I wouldn't say my data usage is abusive.

A friend with a stock V hasn't gotten it yet and he doesn't tether or hotspot (which you can do without rooting).

I don't know if they are targeting certain users first.

^Possibly something to that, but there are people in this thread who are rooted and don't tether who have gotten it, so who knows. I think it's just random like the throttling message & we'll all get it eventually.

VM says that all Optimus V owners will get the text, but they are being sent out in random batches.

Hey n9yty, PM Andy and ask him to move your post to the root forum, or if you don't want to wait around for him you could repost it in a new thread in there, where the guys will be more than happy to help you out. Good luck.

And now I see you've done exactly that already... carry on.

Im thinking it was for the 2.2.1 phones, and they were "removing" tethering that was active on them.

Default No security update here.

I got that text along time ago, so glad I ignored it then. Though I did about 2 months after I got the text, tried the update and got the page that said that the support issue didn't exist anymore lol. Had no idea that it got rid of the hotspot and prevented rooting. One month I had to use my OV as a hotspot for my primary internet for my house, needless to say I am so very glad I ignored that text.

Running a root with CWM and a stock 2.2.1 OV rom, and the only reason a stock rom, because I couldn't find a custom rom that all my apps would work right with.

On a off topic note, anyone know if there is a chance that the OV will get a official jellybean update, been reading mixed sources that say it will and some say it wont. Kind of confusing, need some clarification on that subject. Thinking that this phone might be a bit to old to get it, but I am hoping for at least ICS, though I really want JB, but I'm not going to hold my breath for either.

Unfortunately that's not going to happen. They want you to purchase newer phones. While most of us don't agree with this, it's the way mobile carriers do business.

I just bought an Optimus V (2.2.1) , but the sw version is vm670ZV4.. I got it because I wanted a companion to tether or hotspot my nexus 7... have been going in circles trying to get the hotpot to pass data (it connects).. I don't mind rooting a phone, if I need to. But I am a newbie at android. By the way, I am also having trouble mounting a flash drive, although I have done everything short of rooting the nexus, though I would, if necessary.

I may be the very person that they were attempting to thwart, as I am on the $30/plan with unlimited 3g data...

I had flash on mine, after I rooted and added a custom rom. You just have to check over at XDA for the flash file, and I think there's even a few vids on YouTube that shows how to get Flash working on the OpV.

Thanks Petrah...i didn't think flash worked on the v.

Only reason i'm saying that, i've read several posts where nobody could get it to work including sammyz, i figured if sammyz couldn't get it to work, well you know!

But thanks for the info, i'll check it out.

By the way ... I love your new avatar!

( DUHHH)...YOU'VE BEEN BIT! I just read about the undead last night, great thread.

If you went from a gingerbread ROM to a Froyo ROM you partition doesn't have the proper format for the Froyo ROM which needs a FAT32 formatted partition. Use MiniTool Partition Wizard to change from ext.4 (or ext.3) to FAT32.

you can't drop bombs like that and just leave, need full detail about which exact rom and verion number, flash version, zip all those up into a file and host it

It doesn't really work that well. I ended up uninstalling it. Been around for a year and a half.
It sort of works on Gingerbread ROMs.
Go to XDA and search Optimus V Adobe flash player.
