    Gingerbread the s2 is tempting but I'll give them a few more days :D

    As far as the gingerbread update is concerned I used to work for AT&T and its most likely not coming out in October.

    The reason why I believe this is because originally it was said the gingerbread update was going to come out in October for the Optimus 3D and have the 3D converter software in it but instead LG decided to just release a maintenance update (in october) with the 3D convertor program meaning that odds are they are still testing and having issues with gingerbread on the Optimus but wanted to at least honor releasing the 3D convertor program since they dropped the gun and announced it was coming in october.

    Now because of this that would mean that the Optimus 3D isn't going to get gingerbread until at the earliest November and even then it will get it first before AT&T gets it to roll it out. Its not AT&T faults but the manufacturer LG so AT&T is at there mercy. Now naturally because the Optimus 3D hasn't received gingerbread yet its only safe to assume based on facts that the LG Thrill won't get it until most likely 2 months afterwards if we are lucky.

    Facts pertaining to the fact that the gingerbread update officially came out for the Optimus one in August but has yet to be released on the LG Phoenix sold by AT&T. AT&T while being committed to gingerbread still is slow with timely updates. The Motorola Atrix didn't get gingerbread until 3 to 4 months after launch. The Samsung Infuse (while it has gingerbread on rogers network in canada) still hasn't released gingerbread and we are on the 3 month since launch of the phone. While I hope gingerbread comes out soon its pointless to believe it will be out anytime soon, i'm also wondering if AT&T will release the maintenance update or just wait for gingerbread, my assumption would be wait until gingerbread so it will be a quicker release.

    Well at&t did say that all phones released this year will have gingerbread. Whether we get it or not, i've made up my mind to only have the Thrill until the Nexus Prime comes to at&t. Im taking my son's upgrade and getting the Prime while he takes the Thrill. It's a major upgrade from a iphony 3G. Besides he's only 10 so he'll love the Thrill. I had the captivate prior before the Thrill and it took 8 months for us to get it after the phone was released. It had one update and that was it. I'm just so tired of updated android OS lacking on devices that I have officially made a promise to myself that i will NEVER buy another android phone not sponsered by Google. Nexus gets all the updates first and I would like to get my moneys worth on smartphones rather then one update per device. So March is his upgrade (I don't think at&t will have the Prime til late December or early next year) therefore I'll just stick it out with this phone until then.

    O i agree, i love the thrill and will probably do the samething when the prime comes out. I just wanted to give a realistic scenario to gingerbreads release.

    If O3D gets theirs this month then maybe we might see it before the end of the year.

    A traitor to the cause, hahaha. I returned my Thrill before the 30 days ran out.
    Reasons: Poor battery performance, no updated system, 5mp cams, ATT still charging $100. Do I really need 3D?
    Actually: I bought a 2700ma battery. Beware of the 3500 ... read the reviews about very poor quality.
    I will wait and see the updated Gingerbread system.
    I am operating my old ATT Tilt 2 and thanks to this forum I updated to WinMobile 6.5 and it is a very good phone/computer. It's NO THRILL though.
    I can wait for he update and any other improvements .... and Costco has it for $29.95
    I also have a new Samsung Galaxy 10.1 Tab which is a BIG Thrill so I can keep running Android neat stuff.

    UPDATE: Bought a new Thrill from AT&T so I can keep my unlimited data. Upgraded to GB, added 32GB and the 2700 battery. Best I ever had.

    Really.....my old craptivate is now upgradable to 2.3. A phone that's over a year older then are Thrill with a single processor and it still beat us to the punch. Wow at&t & LG.......wow!!!

    There is a v20a from brazil that works with at&t frequencies but the rom is not rootable. So you may use it but atm you can't root it. All you need is to add at&t apn info. MMS is fully working.

    I wish they would leak some sort of test build just so I can know they are working on it :-\

    It has to be at&t holding it up cause from the OD3 to our version its only the radio that's different.

    If you want to test the Brazil rom you can. I have been on it for a week and haven't noticed anything stopping it except for not being able to root.

    Here is the kdz file needed:

    You install it by this method:
    ◘►◘►[FLASH + ROMS][v20B.KDZ] KDZ Files on WINDOWS 7 (64) & XP + Download◄◘◄◘ - xda-developers

    You may need to wipe data by going into recovery afterwards:
    Power + Vol Down

    Make sure you add at&t apn after install to get working data.

    Stuck on FroYo, waiting on Gingerbread, friends already enjoying Ice Cream Sandwich and now they are talking about Jelly Beans... Sounds like a bad joke.

    Yeah, it's a Shane att/LG at waiting this long to put out gingerbread.

    I have a friend that works for AT&T here, I keep bugging him about this upgrade, he keeps saying "they're working on it" as soon as he tells me differently, I'll let you guys know.

    LG has detailed its Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich plans and 11 of its smartphones are due for the update to the latest Google mobile operating system.
    The updates will begin in the "second and third quarters of 2012, which will be followed by a global rollout,"

    Europe will get the update first. Then about 6 months after that and all US carriers bloat it......it'll finally hit us here.
