    I'm not very tech savy just letting you know.
    I got the Eve April 2010, so I'm assuming it's one of the first ones?
    Is there an EASY way to upgrade it?
    and if I can upgrade it, will it delete everything?

    I'm with Rogers by the way

    Welcome to the Eve Forum on AndroidForums. There are a few things you can do to update your phone. Rogers has a version of Android (1.6) for the Eve which you can update using the software provided by LG.

    If you feel a bit inclined there is a way of updating to Android 2.2 but... I would suggest a little background in computers and a sense of fearlessness. :) I haven't had too many troubles but others have. You can read some of the discussion on this forum and the full details on

    There are also instructions on Rooting you phone here in the Eve discussions.

    it is pretty easy to do the upgrade from 1.5 to 1.6 thru the lg updater website IF you read properly the step by step document.
    If you don't read it, it will be a pain in the butt.

    Will it delete everything?? Yes!
    So my suggestion is to get the app Astro and backup everything on your sd card.
    there is also an app to backup your contact to your sd card or you can sync them with your google account.

    Once you upgrade to 1.6 just re-download astro and re-install your apps.
