    Hi guys I'm new to posting but been reading alot of the useful posts and comments on here!

    I am trying to update to 2.1 and so far have tried LG's software and the guide on here and I am getting stuck in that neither see my phone to update it!

    I am enabling debug mode, and I can get access to the phones files, so it is being recognised at the very least as a USB device. (this is where I am stuck more then anything)

    When I try to use the LG updater software to install the usb software it won't find it by IMEI and SN or when I try scan the phone option.
    I have uninstalled the USB driver from the hardware manager twice but still getting the same outcome.

    I haven't rooted my phone or messed with it yet so I am really stuck and have searched around but not seen how to get around this.

    Really hope someone can help with this, I don't mind which route I go to updating the phone but just really want to do it.

    Oh! Just figured out as a last ditch and re-read of some posts.

    I had the mass storage turned on, the pissing LG updater software didn't work but I followed the instructions the other thread and used a UK release and it worked great.
