    I used the LGMobile Support Tool to install drivers for the USB recently. I just started it up again and it says 'New mobile phone software is available'. Its connected to my phone through the USB and wants to start updating. Anyone know what this is and would it screw up my phone with BACKside on it?

    I think it's trying to update the software on your PC. Usually manufacturers refer to the software on the phone as firmware.

    Ok thanks. I thought it might be a PC software update but needing to have my phone hooked up threw me. USB is working so I don't think I'll update just in case. :D

    This is the whole message:

    New mobile phone software is available
    Please update your software.
    If not connected, connect the device now to start update.
    If the update is done later, connect the device at that time.

    If you ever except any kind of an update in the future you will loose root forever and no more custom ROM's.

    Ooh Noo, I'm wrong. Looking at the way that is phrased, it is for the phone!

    Thanks all. The only thing I'm planning to update in the future is BACKside. :)
