    So Cal
    Anyone else been having issues since doing that update. I didn't have any real problems at all. No sd card issues, no problems at all. Since the update, it's been doing strange stuff. If I try and move a shortcut, as soon as I remove my finger instead of staying in the new position it immediately disappears, (like it was dumped into the trash can). If I try and move another shortcut, (or widget), the same thing happens. Until I create another shortcut. After that it seems fine. Then it might do it again an hour later when I pick up the phone. Also, some apps have been force closing and I never had that happen before either.
    So, anyone else with problems since the update? Or better yet, anyone have any answers?

    I had one app disappear after the update. Other than that the phone is wicked laggy since the update. Anyone know how to remove the update?

    @Jen not sure if you can remove the update without doing a factory reset. I'll post a link on how you can root after the update in the other thread.

    After installing the update via the LG tool on my unrooted phone, I had a couple of apps disappear, including the Market. I did a factory reset and the phone has been running better than ever since. Try doing that and see if your problems go away. Note, the update sticks after the factory reset, so I don't know if there is a way to remove it.

    Urg I hate doing a factory reset but if it's the only way to fix my phone I will do it. I'll keep my eye out on the other thread. Thanks again guys. :)

    Okay, so it took me a while to get around to this. You can reroot after the VC update. Here is the link how to. It's a little involved. I haven't tried it yet, haven't updated yet, and won't until the devs for the ROMs I like to use integrate the update into the ROMs.

    Okay, so it's involved. ;) I haven't tried it, but a bunch of others have successfully done it via the linked method. If you aren't comfortable using ADB, then I would hold off until the devs find a better fix. There is someone working on a one click solution, but isn't there yet. It will likely be posted here if you want to follow the thread.

    Lol, I understand totally! Not nearly as many steps rooting, creating a custom recovery and installing a Rom with V9. Of course, I did a lot of reading first and just took the plunge less than 2 weeks ago. For once my timing was right ;) The devs are on it though so I didn't get into a hurry to update and redo what I'd just done.

    Arrgh I meant to quote you jen! It has been a long day. Hi Maximus :)
