    I've bought 2 x LG GT540 phones for my son & daughter..

    Both are from the Carphone Warehouse and both are Android 1.6

    I've downloaded the LG support tool & USB Drivers and have tried then on Win XP & Win 7.

    Windows detects the phones and we can mount the SD Cards, but the LG Support Tool doesn't see either phone.

    So how do I upgrade them ?

    I have 2 kids pestering me to upgrade them then they can install their apps etc..

    Merry Christmas

    Djolle its best if you explain that doing your method will void the warrenty, the best way is to do it official, have you tried unmounting the sd cards then load up lg support?

    Usually unofficial updates will void the warranty. Same reason i'm holding on for the official update :((

    You guys are funny...

    First of all, I saw at many forums (including this one) that official update not working or brick the phone - rather than unofficial...
    Second, unofficial way still use LG Service updater (whatdoyouknow - LG repair centers use it) :p
    Third... who will know which method you used and how anyone can tell that if you brick the phone??? :confused:

    Still, there is a planty of help from community members if something goes wrong (many people bring phones from dead) - that you NOT gonna see from LG officials. :cool:

    Yap, Unofficial way (KDZ Updater) is better than the official way... Most of the devices get bricked by the Official tool... & if sth happens while using KDZ Updater it's easy to fix...

    While using the KDZ Updater Just read the instructions and prepare your PC carefully, then update.. During update just ensure the connection between your phone & PC don't get interrupted....
