    Spoke to someone with LG a few minutes ago, and they said the ICS update is only going to be available via OTA.

    It makes sense it shouldn't be to long before you guys get it

    Finally got the LG software assistant to DO something... it's upgrading now. 8 minutes remaining. Will report back shortly!


    Edit: Yikes! Just hit the power button to see if there was any change on the phone and got a screen that says "Download Mode - Do Not Unplug device, etc..." this is taking a LONG time! Hoping this is a good sign!

    Edit 2: Bummer. Looks like just upgraded to V6? I thought that was what I got when I followed the instructions in the thread to return to pure stock? Oh well... lots of excitement for nothing.

    I believe there is something changed in the V6 return to stock fine that is being detected, causing it to download the update to your phone. This has happened to several people

    i think with mine its picking up the kernel.. but a sure way to find out what your about to update to is to check in C:\Documents and Settings\All Users\Application Data\LGMOBILEAX\phone it should have the cab file your downloading in there... it just did it to me.. again

    Do you have the drivers for your phone installed? I would use 'mass storage' and make sure USB debugging is checked.

    A.J.: He should take it to your local store and tell them to force the new software.


    ^^ from someone at verizons webchat help said that... anyone on stock close to a vzw store wanna try this?

    I'm pretty sure I did; was woken up 5 times last night by my phone demanding I update to v6 (usually it only asks me to do this once a week, so the insistence was weird to begin with). Then this morning it asked me something a little differently with different instructions, kinda implying it was the ics ota. I denied it rhough bc I didnt know what it would do if it realised it was missing the original Swype + the v6 update.

    Did you ever take the official v6 update or just install a v6 based ROM?

    since I'm missing the original Swype apk (i had to delete the original to update to a newer version), v6 always fails due to 'system error' when it attempts install.

    It was trying to update from v6 from v4 I'd assume. Finndo has a link with the files I will edit my post and post link. maybe somEone else can direct ya to it.

    I KNOW DUDE. I'm so tempted ro fix the swype thing and update to v6 to see if i get the new update message again. but i dont want to lose root if i dont get ics as a reward :p

    You might be a winner on the it's roulette. It's not hard to get rooted again anyway with the awesome tools our deva made.

    if just ups you to v6 the AIO works to root and install cwm.

    Or you can just keep a rooted v6 nandroid. You have to remove and replace the recovery of course but at least you could know when ota is available and reject it.

    Now it looks like Bell's (Canadian service provider) version of the Optimus lte will be getting Ics sooner than later. Hopefully that will put a fire under Verizon to show that they aren't the slowest at implementing update, now that it seems that Sprint is going to beat them with the Nitro (who's update is coming tomorrow) :p!
