    This so awesome! My day just got 10 times better. As soon as I get the update I will edit my post. Thanks for the article! :D

    So is there anything we should to to prepare for the update? Like will it delete all my data that isn't on an SD card? Just curious

    Woohoo!

    I've never updated, is there anything I need to know about updating?

    Also, what all will this get us?

    NO Fair, they say you can iniate the update with the support tool today instead of waiting, doesn't work yet as of 8:15pm eastern.......I also saw where they tweaked flash player for ICS but everyone else is complaining that ICS breaks Flash player....Oh well I waited this long, guess I can just keep trying till it allows me to get it......

    And why not you dent need to do anything but have space available on your phone and have enough battery life to get through it other than that you just sit back and let your phone do the wprk

    not trying to sound stupid but if we're rooted I don't think we'll be prompted for the update right? we have to unroot or return to stock?

    whenever I try to check for an update I get an unexpected error/FC so I'm assuming thats what happens with root?

    Well it's after midnight EST and I am currently unable to get the new update. Neither the phone's update check nor the LG software is finding any update. Not getting any errors either. I suppose it's just a matter of waiting until Verizon decides to make it available.

    I was able to get it through the software for my comp. now, but it said that it would stop me from hard reseting back to what my phone came with, which I don't want to do.

    So waiting for it to go OTA I guess.

    I just want to be able to go back in case they screwed up or battery is bad or something.

    Not rooted.

    And either ethernet or USB debugging. I think ethernet.

    Is it possible for the update tool to overwrite the ROM to delete the 2.x.x that came on my phone?
