    Out of curiosity, what do you hate about it? I don't find it to be much different from 1.6, certainly not worse.

    I got my new LG GT540 Optimus with 1.6. It was quite good. But then i upgraded it to Eclair 2.1 official update from LG. I see many basic features are not availalbe like, Grouping Contacts(was available in 1.6),
    Send contact, Send business card etc.
    Has anybody alternate settings for this?

    Really? When I tried to play the "mp4" labelled files produced by the 1.6 camera application they were rejected as invalid mp4 files. Renaming them to 3gp files enabled them to be played.

    There's been a few niggles in it..

    Market doesn't work for many ppl, some other apps being a bit iffy as well.
    And the f**king video quality...

    I think they've got the iron out... At least I hope so....

    ok buddy try this

    You'll need to get the stock (official) 1.6 firmware as a update.zip file suitable for your particular phone model. To be sure that it isn't some modified version, ask your manufacturer (LG).

    Place it to your sdcard and kick it through the bootloader for manually updating. The procedure differs for different phone models. So check with your manufacturer (LG).

    People on xda-developers forum might have backup of such files and know the procedure. But they usually show interest in HTC based android devices. Do try your luck there if you can't get it from LG straight.
