Alright I'll be giving it a shot in a bit, its not that I don't believe you, its just this seems too good to be true, and on the Telus website it doesn't show this update available.

Let us know how it goes. I may move some of my apps back first I used Link2SD on. I don't trust the update on the rooted phone.

Hmm, so I have it downloaded and installed, to some degree. Right now its restoring my data. It needs 50MB of your internal data to install, so before hand making room would make this go faster. Right now its restoring my text messages.....and I had ALOT. This is going to be awhile.

Fingers crossed.

What I should have done is deleted all texts on my phone, SMS backup and restore is a lot faster than this is.

OK it reset after 50% and jumped to 100% after it shut off. If I recall the last d update did that too. Elapsed time about 6.5 minutes.

Booting up now, despite it saying it will reboot automatically. It didn't...

Is your phone still restoring data? or did it finish already?

Whew, had 53 megs free so restore went. That took about 3 minutes. Lost all my text messages the other day when the sim card got full. I guess that helps.

About says:

A lot of apps can't be moved, like Thinkfree Office, Fakebook and Gmaps.

I liked the Link2SD method better :|

I'm not sure what those are, but I noticed home selector is gone, as well as the Tiny LED flashlight app no longer works......but its nice you can put some of these apps on the SD card.

- Home Selector is gone, and I'm stuck with Go Launcher for now
- There were two youtube shortcuts, one doesn't work and gets deleted after a few reboots
- Voice Search has an update in appbrain, but update is not compatible for us
- Sound Hound and Shazam are no longer compatible
- Noticed the tethering app. Haven't tried it.
-Twitter and Do It Tomorrow says they can be moved to and the function is there in appbrain, but when it takes you to the properties it's greyed out
- Market and Gmail look totally different
- When connected to USB and you set an app to install in appbrain, it kicks it off on the phone (not sure if that feature was there before and I never noticed)
- So far I think my battery is not calibrated correctly. I plugged it into the wall and it stays at 39%
- Data restore was flawless
- Gallery isn't loading my pics, going to reboot and try later
- I found rebooting a few times helps. Some apps like G+ would hang trying to install from the market when downloading
- took a pic and went through and was able to browse with Pixlr-o-matic ok
- The USB warning screen if your phone is plugged into your PC while you boot it up is annoying
- There's some news app now... haven't tried it
- Some cool effects on the screen when you press and scroll - not sure if it's the OS or Go Launcher

Gonna play with it more.

- FM radio constantly runs. Not sure why..never use it.

Now I'm back with only 25 megs free on internal. I had like 80 with the old one with Link2SD...

I might do Link2SD again. Anyone trust this?

- To set a ringtone for a specific contact from a custom ringtone, you have to set song as a ringtone from the music player. It then appears on the pull down list as an option when you set it for the contact. Good and Bad. So I guess go into the music player, use all the songs/sounds you want as a ringtone and they'll all appear as an item in the contact as a ringtone option.

- Flickr is now incompatible
- 3G network button now connects/disconnects with one touch
- App2SD is good app to have now to bulk move your apps to SD
- Saw some Flash sites work. Not shockwave though
- My wifi dies every so often. It did this before, but it's doing a lot more now. It could just be my terrible router

I get the feeling, based on what you folks are saying, that they ported this release from a different but similar LG phone, so now things like the led flashlight app need a rewrite but they didn't take the time to do it, and now things like the brightness sensor don't have compatible software because they didn't take the time to write a gb driver for it, and so on.

Which is kind of pathetic, really.

and shazam and flickr and all these similar apps should work on GB - they work on my hero running an underground aosp gingerbread build. So why don't they work on the lg gingerbread firmware from an official release?

I hope the can patch it with software compatibility fixes soon!

Not sure why the Market says they are incompatible. Market won't even bring Shazam, Soundhound or Flickr up. If you queue them up in Appbrain, only then it will tell you they are not compatible.

For what it's worth, if you find Shazam or SoundHound "elsewhere", they install and work fine...

oh good! well then there may be a simple hack to solve this problem.

I believe, after a long time of involvement on xda-developer.com, that there is an init file in android that can be edited to change how the phone model and os version is sent to the market, so basically the market knows what apps to show as compatible with your phone and os. Maybe the init file is borked in the new release. If so then it could be a simple fix.

I'll check into it when I'm able - havne't even updated wife's phone yet and also am dealing with a lot of stuff in my life right now.

build.prop is I think the file in the /system folder, but I'm running on memory here so I might be 100% incorrect LoL.

Thanks for help in this thread. I could not get update to work. It would stall on the download and tells me to contact LG support, which is closed now. I see post above that we need at least 50 mb of internal storage to work. I only had 47 mb. So I uninstalled a few apps and it seems to be installing right now as I type. Where are the instructions to tell to clear the 50 mb in the first place?? Fingers crossed...

I believe the 50MB is only for the restore of messages, contacts, calendar entries etc, and that happens after the install. MisterPuzzler might have more insight on that.

Was your download 139MB for the install?

Well, I tried updating 2 or 3 times and each time it stalled. I tried to reinstall updater and same problem. I switched to a Windows 7 laptop, installed updater and had the same problem. After I read above, I uninstalled apps and increased free internal memory from 47 to about 54 mb. The installer started to work.

Phone screen went yellow and said "emergency mode". It started downloading and the it started to install. I went away and came back. I got an error message on the PC saying it upgrade would not complete. Meanwhile the phone screen stayed yellow. I went to the LG website and it said to reopen the updater and click phone recovery. I did that. It tried to resume updating but said my phone was not connected. It instructed me to disconnect usb and to take out battery and turn bac on. The phone was stuck with the "ANDROID" screen (I was freaking out at this point). I reconnected the usb anyways and tried to restart the updater. The updater then said I had the latest version (?) but I was still stuck with the Android screen. So I disconnected the battery again. The phone then turned on (took a while) and then started to do a Data Restore. I now have the updated phone. It is in a factory setting, but my contacts and calendar seems to be intact. (Whew!)

I will test it out to see if it is mucked up in any way.

I didn't remove updates, but I uninstalled a tonne of programs since I had a rooted phone running Links2SD. I unrooted it too once I unlinked everything.

If it takes long during the Android screen (still animated, not hung), let it go for a good 3-4 minutes. It should eventually come up. If not, removing the battery should be ok.

Well it works, kind of. The Move to SD Card only freed up about 15 mb of internal storage. Many of my Apps can't be moved to SD (eg Calengoo) or widget does not work if main program is in SD (eg Texas Holdem).

I was able to download and install Angry Birds for the first time in about 6 months.

Each of my SD apps disappeared from the Downloaded applications list after a reboot. The apps are still on the home screens and still work, but the shortcut icons becomes generic icons and the app does not show up in the Downloaded Applications list. I had to move all the apps back to the internal storage and then reboot to get the apps back onto the Download list and to get back the original icons. Weird

Booting up is a lot slower than before. But booting up a couple times seems to speed things up. Also weird.

Wifi seems less reliable, but maybe its because the Market also changed and seems slower.

Anybody else having problems?

I wonder if my install was buggy. Anyway to do a clean reinstall of 2.3?

More problems.

Bluetooth won't pair or connect.

Voice control does not work properly. Will not let me run "Adapt".

This is getting frustrating.

On the other hand, GPS is now incredibly fast. Used to take me 3 to 5 minutes to get a lock. Now it takes about 5 seconds.

Good Morning,

I am wondering if somebody could please provide me with some assistance.

In the process of upgrading to 2.3 my phone went into emergency mode.

I was able to reboot back into android 2.1 without issue. However, when I run the lg updater the software checks the version on my device and returns V20 then proceeds to tell me I have the latest version and an update is not needed.

Does anyone know how to remedy this?

I tried calling LG Support who abruptly told me there was no such upgrade to Android 2.3 and as much as I incouraged the agent to look into the issue he advised me I didn't know what I was talking about. (I am more than a little frustrated with this experience!)

Worst case scenario perhaps I could flash the upgrade with an image and the instructions in the root section. Would somebody be able to provide me a 2.3 img?

Thank you very much!

You stopped the process when it said "emergency mode"? That emergency mode is normal (as far as I know, mine said that during the upgrade, and others did too).

What version does it say when you go into the "about" on your phone currently?

Good Morning,

I didn't stop the process...The updater said something a long the lines of update unsuccessful. Then I was left with the phone in emergency mode.

I did attempt the update while rooted. I have since flashed the stock images (including recovery) from the root section of the forum and unrooted. The LG Updater still insists I have V20A.

In the about on the phone it says: Model LG-C710H, Firmware 2.1-update1, Kernel 2.6.29 lg=electronics@new1 #4, Build number ERE27, Software Version.

Thank you for the response, I am open to any ideas!

Well looks like your phone still recognizes it as 2.1 at least.

I unrooted mine before the update. I have no idea what will happen with an update to a rooted phone.

Try installing the LG update on a different PC and running the update again?

.MP4 files can now be played with the native video player and it's pretty smooth!

See my post above. I used the update tool and clicked "Phone Recovery" which resumed the update. Of course, now I have other issues. More later when I have time to post....

Barney does your Nuance voice control work properly? Mine wont let me do a voice adapt. So it is very poor.

I contacted Telus and they transfered me to LG. I had to do hard reset to get back bluetooth connection. But voice dialing is not working well.

I've honestly never used that (I use Vlingo the odd time when I want voice activation).

Let me give it a shot and let you know.

Wow Nuance sucks bro, use Vlingo. I gave about 10 commands and none of them work.

Just to add to the conversation on my upgrade path: I upgraded directly from a modded, rooted ROM. All it does is it upgrades your phone with stock apps. Bluetooth pairing is broken if you do until you do a factory default.

What happens with root: System partition is flushed, effectively deleting the su binary, rendering superuser.apk completely useless. You CAN upgrade the phone directly from a modded ROM, but you will have to do a factory reset afterwards.

Gingerbreak does not work for me to root the phone. Tonight I'll try flashing recovery back on (Hope I won't brick anything) and then do a nandroid, mod the image to zipalign + add root.

Will post more if I have the time!

GingerBreak v1 didn't install, V1.20 installed but didn't work.

When I use the recovery menu the updater once again tells me I have the latest version and an update is not required.

The LG Updater just thinks I have V20A installed!

I have tried on multiple computers without success.

I am open to more ideas.

Thank you!
