    well today i went to a metro pcs store and i asked about the update for the rebooting issue and im guessing they didnt know what i was talking about and they said that the only thing they knew about updates was that ice cream sandwich will be released at the end of January or beginning of February i wonder if this is true i was surprised when they said 4.0 was coming for the esteem

    I saw a post on LG's facebook, I actually think it was made by spc I saw it on another forum, and the moderators said the revolution was getting it.

    lol, yeah i just recently searched online and it seems that the revo is getting it thus giving us a big chance for esteem to get it as Metro is trying to push the ics upgrade to our latest handsets...

    Maybe the back order of esteems were because they were installing ics on them? Wishful thinking lol

    most likely the LG connect will see ics before the esteem does.

    With the official update you will lose root and we will most likely have to figure out how to root it again. If you are talking about PG's CM9 Rom then no you will not lose root.
