    I'm currently upgrading my phone with the 2.3.6 update. I was waiting on the OTA but since that was not available, you can do it through your pc with the LG software.
    Thanks to ferndog75 on android central for this tidbit..

    The LG software/updater allows you to flash the latest version of Android for our phones and I believe it's the same as what you can take OTA.

    I upgraded earlier today, it works well, obviously it takes away root access but the One Click program still works on this update. After rooting and installing some of my normal programs I noticed that the cpu is clocked to 1512 by default (I think the old OTA software was at 1.2???).
    I ran Antutu and got a score of 6434, which is pretty good for stock running at 1.5, and considering I haven't removed any bloat or anything yet. Looking forward to seeing what this update is actually capable of.

    I would not suggest that you do. The bin file is linked there for the dev's to see what files are being patched. Wait for an official Rom to come out or revert to stock V4 and take the OTA update.

    BTW, if anyone gets stuck in recovery, apply the CWM bootloop fix zip file. You're boot looping because the update sets the same flag as using the button combo to get into recovery (it just sets that flag to a different number is all)

    I would grab the all in one package again as it sounds like you are missing a file from inside it. Also, as silly as this may be, ensure that debugging is still enabled on your phone as the update may have changed that setting for you.

    I'm just glad to see Bing is no longer the default search engine.

    Multiple people have reported being able to root again after the V6 update.... strange. More quirks of the deivce?

    I do not disagree that you are following the instructions, but here is what your own logs are showing:

    * failed to start daemon *

    That message right there has nothing to do with the phone and everything to do with ADB. If it was the phone, then the daemon would start and would say waiting for phone. If possible, try running "adb shell" on it's own and seeing if you can connect to your phone. If not, then it is definitely ADB. If it does connect, then there is another issue that has not been address yet.

    This may just be a noob observation but what if you are introducing old code in the mix? What if you did a backup of what you need, then did a clean wipe and then tried again...

    Again....Nooooooob here....don't flame me bro....but what if.
