    Which country and network are you on? And is your phone unbranded?

    the phone is unbranded and i am in UK...
    Baseband I9300XXLH1
    Build IMM76D.I9300XXBLG8
    the update was only 0.16mb

    I believe LH1 is to address the battery drain issue.

    For when the phone is in standby mode.

    On the LG8 baseband, I had drain due to Fast Dormancy. The Cell Standby issue is not addressed by this as this is simply a baseband update and the issue is simply a reporting issue, in the frameworks.

    This is an example of why seperate forums can make sense, but there you go.

    No. This is an example of why a carrier prefix makes sense ;)

    any idea why I havent received an update? I'm also in the UK, flashed to an unbranded firmware. both baseband and build is LG8. I checked for an update but it said none found

    Are you rooted? If so, you have to manually flash the new baseband.

    really? that's inconvenient. I thought any update would override whatever 'custom' stuff I had on the phone.

    It's not as If I have a custom rom. It's the latest unbranded version (not anymore).


    Isn't there a temp way to fake this and get away with just updating?

    Unfortunately once you root the phone, you loose the ability to perform OTA updates. Your only choice is to download the firmware and flash it with Odin. Since its actually just a baseband update, it would be more reasonable to see whether you find it somewhere and flash it, rather then downloading the whole firmware of about 600MB.

    Not sure what it did. Still got android 4.0.4, anyone know what it was?

    It probably just changed your baseband from LG8 to LH1 to solve a battery drain issue.

    Its really easy. You choose to flash it with odin or clockwork mod recovery

    anyone knows what the update is providing? I'm on MAC OS x and to flash with Odin, I need to get a hold of a PC which is rather annoying.

    also anyone has a link to just the update? i dont want to go through replacing the Email stock apk with the AOSP apk again...

    If you're replacing apks, surely you're rooted and the update is irrelevant? Please provide details, including current build number

    Yes I am rooted. I'm on XX something LG8. both baseband and build number.

    cant remember on top of my head. based in the UK, unbranded, rooted

    why is the update irrelevant? I thought it fixed some bug issues with cell standby and battery draining.

    It's irrelevant as rooted devices don't get OTA updates. or shouldn't anyway...

    The update is just a baseband (LH1) that can be flashed via CWM recovery.

    It fixes some drain issues but cell standby is something else.
