    Where you trying to use the ZV5 update(which is just a 2.2.2 froyo update from 2.2.1)with the LG Mobile Updater.It's not the Gingerbread update that you might think it is. It's a waste of time,they took the tethering and WiFi hot spot out. If you want gingerbread on your phone then go to the "All Things Root" subforum and check it out. They got the BACKside ROM that is CM7-IHO Gingerbread. Whay better than what LG has come out with.

    If there is an update, they will push it over the air to your phone amd you should get a notification on the notification bar, or at least a notification when you click "software update" on your phone.

    The update will come from Virgin, not the LG site.

    The update on the LG site is not something you want or need, and I do not know of anyone who has sucessfully installed it, though several have tried, just to see what it was. One contacted LG and they didn't seem to even know it was there.

    As far as I know, the only difference between 2.2.1 and 2.2.2 is that the hotspot has been disabled.

    Rooting is easy gives you much more control and you can chose your ROM which on this phone the development community is very active.

    I agree 100% and the new IHO-CM7(gingerbread)ROM's are being improved every day and will be far superior than the 2.3 update that VM comes out with(if ever).
