Not happy about that one. Have asked whether this is going to be 1.6 or higher. Waiting to hear back from them.

I do hope that if it's going to be that long that it's something higher than 1.6. Seems like a long time to wait for an upgrade IMO.

By the way, first post on here. Have been reading with interest but never had reason to post until now.
I received an email from an lg spokesperson today and yes Rogers won't be getting the update for testing until early september. I was also informed that "Due to the technical limitation of the device, lg will not be looking at updating the EVEpast 1.6

So I have confirmation:

@naschmid It should be 1.6. Anytime Nicholas, if I have the answer I'm happy to share

Looks like we'll be waiting a bit yet.

That's really unfortunate. Makes me really want to consider going off-market to get an upgrade.

Any ideas?

Safely disconnect and unmount your phone. Go to settings on phone. Select SD card and phone storage. Unclick "mass storage only". Plug in phone again and re-start the update process.

Hey, has anyone still had keyboard issues since the firmware upgrade? I completed it, I thought successfully, but my keyboard (the space key specifically) hasn't gotten worse since it.

Ideas?

"Technical limitations" was what I was told in the email that I received. Sorry but I can't break it down any further because that's all the information that I was given.

sorry...Hope this is not stupid question. I am new to android and read that the eve would have the 1.6 upgrade in the spring...however summer is here and I cannot find it anywhere on the Rogers site...I also read that we should not upgrade to the 1.6 if we plan on running 2.0/2.1? Is that true? I find all this rooting stuff complicated and confusing. Seems like you have to be a computer programmer to understand any of this. So to recap...Is the update to 1.6 out yet and should I even put it on? Or should we wait for 2.*? Oh and what does rooting do exactly? From what I understand during my research is that rooting enables you to delete apps? is that all? Sorry guys ....I did some searching however could not get enough info to satisfy my curiosity...I also just bought an Iphone as well...I love phones and have too many to list...lol Thanks and cheers....

Apparently, the 1.6 image is going to be released today (July 26th), but it likely wont be made available to Roger's customers before Sept/Oct. from what I've read in other forums.

From reading the hackers forums, the opinion on this issue seems to go back and forth. The problem, as far as I understand it, is that the "secret code" that allows you to root your phone is being changed in each release. Unless someone "leaks" the secret code, you are stuck with what you have. The secret code is well known for 1.5, but it is not known for 1.6... so if you upgrade to 1.6, and if the secret code is never leaked, then you're stuck! However, I suspect that the secret code for 1.6 will eventually be known :-)

In the LG Eve hackers forum (xda-developers) someone has apparently just managed to get 2.1 working on their Eve... albeit not perfectly (the phone doesn't work, and various other things don't work... but it boots! LOL!). If I were you, I wouldn't hold my breath that we will ever get an OFFICIAL release of 2.1 or 2.2 for the LG Eve... ever! So... *if* the hackers are successful in getting a 2.* version running, the only way you're going to get it running on your phone will be to root the phone. It wont be a trivial thing, and it will be "at your own risk"...

just spoke to LG Canada about the Eve: said a FIRMWARE (android o/s) UPDATE has been released and should be available on both Rogers and LG Canada's websites by late September 2010. I asked what o/s was released: "I'm sorry we don't have that information..." wth, shouldn't they know what's out if it's going to be available to consumers soon?!

ROGERS & LG CANADA: RELEASE 1.6 ALREADY! WE SHOULDNT HAVE TO BEG YOU WHEN 2.x ON OTHER DEVICES IS ALREADY OUT! WE ARE PAYING CUSTOMERS TOO!

So, just heard back from RogersMary...the update is now not coming to Rogers for testing until early October, so yet another pushback.

It's starting to get hard to want to stick on this phone will all these delays...Can't wait for the Captivate

LOL! LG/Rogers is probably waiting for the android hackers to get it working so that they can "steal" it :-) The guys at openetna have Android 2.1 running almost perfectly on the LG Eve already, and are well on their way to getting 2.2 running! <disclaimer>I have not tried their build</disclaimer> but a lot of people have, and it seems to work really well (other than a few niggling bugs that they are still working on).

If RogersMary tells you that it isn't possible to run 2.1 or 2.2 on the Eve, just call her a L _ _ R because it clearly IS possible... unfortunately, you have to hack your phone to do it. The openetna website is getting better with their documentation, though! It's getting easier every day!!


EDIT: Note that the main guy who is developing the code is nik'd "Polytheus"... there's a link in the top-right of the screen to give him "tips" to thank him for his hard work! I have no idea who he is, but hell... I'm going to drop him a few bucks once I do the upgrade on my phone!!

Default Android 2.2 "hack" released for LG Eve

Update: openEtna has just released their first build of Android 2.2 for the LG gw620. I have now tried it personally, and can confirm that it is getting close to full-functionality. Things that don't work (that I noticed) are:

1) No bluetooth at all
2) Video camera doesn't work
3) No graphic acceleration (which simply means it's a teeny bit slow, but that's hardly noticeable IMO)
4) Volume controls on the phone don't work

everything else was, so far, perfect! It connected to the Rogers network immediately on boot-up with no fuss, and both wifi and GPS worked like a charm. Love the new interface! :-) :-) Polytheus is still working on resolving those four issues.

So, if those four things don't matter to you, and if you are brave enough to hack your phone, then head over to openEtna and grab the update! NOTA BENE - do NOT expect Rogers to ever support you phone again once you do this, though! LOL! (and that's not unreasonable :-) ).

Enjoy your Android 2.2!

I was completely unable to use adb from the Windows environment because the LG modem drivers that are being provided by Rogers/LG right now don't function on Windows 7 (the firmware update software provided by Rogers also doesn't function for the same reason... in fact, oddly enough, "Rogers" is not a provider listed in the "chose your provider" menu in the update-helper software currently being provided from the Rogers website! LOLOL! Sigh, the quality of service from Rogers is priceless )

I had no problem using adb from Linux, though!

Default Nandroid & the newest Android 2.2 release from OpenEtna

Cezegg, I just realized that I didn't answer your question properly. No, I have not tried running Nandroid (yet!) so I don't know if it works or not. I guess I'm just happy risking 'bricking' my phone LOL! So far so good!

b.t.w. the latest release of 2.2 from openetna solves the volume control problem. I just flashed it this morning and it was perfect. Still no Bluetooth, though.

Polytheus... squashing bugs one-at-a-time!

I was playing with the voice-control last night and that seems to work really nicely - great fun! (except for composing emails by voice, but apparently that doesn't work well even on phones that come pre-loaded with 2.2... it's a long-standing bug in Google's voice-to-text server connection, as far as I can tell from the chatter on the web)

Enjoy Froyo!

Default LG Eve and Windows 7

I contacted LG with regards to my problems connecting my phone and I got the following reply:

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

Doesn't sound like they are going to make any attempt to move forward with it either.

I am so frustrated with LG at this point I am considering attempting to root (brick?) the darned thing after reading the discussion over in the Eve forum. I know nothing about these things but I'll learn fast ... one way or another. I guess I'll have to dig out my old vista machine and see if it still boots though. I'm kicking myself for removing linux from my netbook!

Thanks for the discussion(s) I'm learning a lot.

Further to this: After installing Android 2.2, I plugged my device into my Windows 7 PC (to charge) and, surprise surprise, it automatically downloaded the correct drivers from the Windows 7 update site!!

Apparently, the drivers are OS-specific... the ones for 2.2 work, but not the ones for 1.5. (though I cannot guarantee that the ones for 2.2 work either, since I didn't try to fiddle with the phone using them, but I assume they will work given that they were auto-downloaded and passed installation)

That is the best news I've heard in a long time! Hurrah to the Dev group.

Yes, I know but I couldn't run an essential Windows program so I was forced to install XP) I've still got the install CD's it is just a matter of putting it back on (which is much simpler than XP).

I'm thinking of doing a test run on my old HTC Touch (Elf) and see if I can root that without bricking it. Then I might be a bit braver with the Eve.

Thanks again everyone for all the reviews and encouragement.

Default Crappy Update

I just finally successfully did the firmware update to V10f on the Eve, and I gotta say it did nothing for me.

Home and Back buttons are still too damn sensitive, Touch screen in general is pitchy and responds like sh*t, and I've already encountered the Black Screen of death within 24 hrs of applying the update.

Definitely not worth the 3-4 hrs I spent trying to do the update on 3 different computers (one XP, and 2 running windows 7).

Where the heck is the 1.6 update Rogers and LG ?!?!?!?!

Just providing an update to you guys. I know that OpenEtna is out, but we also need to keep LG honest.

I just spoke with someone at LG and asked him about where the 1.6 update for the Eve stands, the official update.

He mentioned to me that the update was provided to Rogers a while back and that Rogers is validating the update to make sure that it works with their network and adheres to CRTC laws, etc. Upon asking whether the update also needed to be sent to Google for verification, the gentlemen said he doesn't know but if other carriers are required to then he "is sure" that LG would send it to Google for approval as well.

As it relates to when the update will be made, he is not sure but he is going to follow up and get me a response on Monday. I will post the response here and ask MJSchmidt to put it up on iwantmyonepointsix.com as well as on leavenodroidbehind.com.

The update as he mentioned will be made available as a download from LG. The timing of when this is going to happen is not confirmed.

As it stands, Rogers has the update to the Eve and they are testing it. When they will be done, only God (if one exists) knows!

Default Don`t wait for LG Eve update... get Rogers to exchange your phone

I got tired of waiting for an update so I called Rogers and told them I was not happy with my 4 month old obsolete phone. They exchanged my phone with a Sony xperia x10 with android 1.6 and 2.1 promised. Maybe you can do the same.

Just as an FYI , as mentioned earlier, open source 2.2 for the eve is out on the following site

OpenEtna

It's working pretty well from most of the feedback I've read so far, so will be flashing my phone to it soon!

Check out the etna forums and u can dl it from there too
cheers

I was in a conference call with Rogers two days ago, and they said it has cleared their testing, and will be released "very soon".

Now I'm debating whether to wait for it, or throw OE on my girl's phone...

Done and done ^^

OpenEtna is SO much easier to install than anything on the Dream. The LG Eve is super fast now ^^.

Sorry Rogers, thanks for the efforts, but a small group of developers beat out 2 major corporations!

See I've been having major problems with the OE version since I updated...enough that I actually downgraded back down. The Bluetooth doesn't work for my car system, my phone started to constantly reboot itself, and I found performance problems with the launcher...I even tried doing the nightly builds route.

I'll wait and try the 1.6 when it comes out...did they give you an exact date XBrav?

Hi Naschmid,
Just wondering which build you used last? I noticed in a few forum posts that the rebooting and shutdowns were pretty much cured in v5. I've had a few issues (shutdowns and had to pull battery once) and my bluetooth took a few tries before my Nuvi would recognize it. I can't imagine going back though.

I'm waiting for Rogers to come out with a decent Android with a keyboard and I'll be calling for my HUP. From the chatter it could be a while though.

I suppose I should talk a bit about OpenEtna, after learning a lot from it.

It's a port of CyanogenMod. They fixed the drivers for a few parts.

As much as I love CM, I hate the fact that the default launcher is ADW Launcher. It's slow and buggy.

I always recommend a switch to LauncherPro in the market. You'll find it to be 4x faster, smoother, and has a much smaller memory footprint.

I find ADW crashes on these devices due to the high resource usage. As well, it doesn't take the "Keep Launcher in Memory" thing very nicely.

There are a whole heap of tweaks that I put on my GF's Eve that I learned from the Dream that helped, including turning off compcache, reducing VM Heap to 12m, keeping both Launcher and Messenger in memory at all times, etc. I might go into the OE forums, and suggest replacing ADW stock with LauncherPro.

Hey Annie,

I actually just recently tried v5 and still had the same problem. I'm wondering if maybe ADW is the problem as XBrav suggested.

XBrav: How do I load in this LauncherPro? Is it something I have to purchase?

Just go onto the market, search for LauncherPro. For whatever reason, it's like 8 entries down on the search. It's free. Install it. When you hit the home button, it'll ask you if you want to use ADW or LauncherPro. Select the checkbox to set as default, then click LauncherPro.

XBrav, thanks so much. I re-flashed OE and put on LauncherPro. It's making a big difference. Now, I'm just going to hope they get the bluetooth calls stable so that I can actually use my in-car system

I too use LauncherPro and I find it quite nice to use. My problem is that I quickly run out of room on my phone and I have to move almost everything onto my card. I don't see anyone else complaining about this. I've cleared out everything I can find, even maps.

>>naschmid: I used to have an old TomTom GPS and it didn't recognize my HTC Touch so I updated it to a Garmin. I'm wondering if it's your GPS rather than your phone that is having troubles with the BlueTooth?

I've had a few shutdowns and such but over all it's fun to play with.

>>AmazonAnnie: I have a built in bluetooth phone system in my car. OE connects to it, but when I try to make a call through it, all I get is white noise. That's why it bothers me.

as a general FYI, just got a message from RogersElise (a friend of RogersMary), the official 1.6 update is out now so you could go and use it if you wanted.

Hi Tase,
There is quite a bit of discussion over on the Eve discussion form on this site. Yes, quite a few of us have rooted and installed OpenEtna with great success.

Check out: LG Eve - Android Forums

... for more info.

... Ah... that's too bad. I wonder if they have an update for it? My daughter's boyfriend got frustrated with his system and I've bought him a BlueAnt for Xmas. Just hope that works better.

Yeah I don't have the old system backed up so I don't know that I'd want to play with the 1.6 update on a custom ROM. I just knew it would happen though - everytime I update something to something else then the original one comes through. <sigh>

I can't use the new Market with the custom ROM either ...yet... but that's not a big issue for me at this time.

Folks, whatever you do, don't upgrade to Rogers 1.6 official (if you were thinking about it). I made the mistake...now fastboot is gone, it's slower and the battery seems to die faster.

Stay away!!

Interesting. Have you tried any rooting methods? I think you can also backtrack using the LG Update Utility, as long as you have the 10f file.

Sorry to hear that. I gave my girl OE two weeks ago, and it's been epically better than the Rogers FW. Sad to see they let ya down with that update.

XBrav, I've searched, but haven't been able to come up with anything that would let me turn it back...and the update utility isn't letting me roll it back.

Could anyone give me some help??

What I'd recommend is add me on GTalk, we can explore a few areas, see if it is possible. I won't take you down any brickable routes:
