    I'm using LG OPTIMUS GT540 running Android 1.6. I bought this phone thinking that I can upgrade to Android 2.1 but when I tried the upgrade it is not happening.

    I dont wanna try the unnofficial ways and void the warrenty :(

    When I run the update program, it recognizes the phone and says update available. When the click start update it analyses my phone and then starts to download the package. Problem occures here. Download hangs at 0% and says "fail to get information necessary for LG cell phone S/W update." It even suggests me to check the internet connection. I'm posting here with same connection :D

    Wot could be the problem?? one of my friends says LG has withdrawn 2.1 upgrade as of now for bug fixes. Is it true??

    Can someone help me??

    Advance New Year wishes :)

    Have you installed the drivers? The 2.1 upgrade was withdrawn for a period but, it is back with us now.

    Yep I have installed the drivers. S/W update tool recognizes the mobile correctly. I could access the mobile via USB port too. But this problem occures over and over again :((

    @mayooresan, Many here did this way.... And the truth is, the official software bricks your phone(well, if you are lucky, it won't)... You can browse this forum and see for yourself...

    @spacem0rph, you haven't replied yet... You need another ROM, an Australian ROM.. But, which carrier are you in?

    guys just another doubt

    Mobile Phone Support

    above mentioned link suggests that I need to remove my SD card while doing the software update. Is it true?? should I remove for GT540 too???

    Hi,
    I was LG GT540 optimus user. I upgraded it to 2.1 using Indian Lg server(Official Website). It takes total 1hr1min.No Problem to upgrade. Dont' forget to take out your SD card before upgradation,dont' disconnect anything.....Good Luck.

    guys im in US (san diego CA to be exact) i bought this phone via Amazon and it has no warranty so i guess i can do black market stuff here :)) I tried LG Mobile Support, downloaded drivers AND LG pc suite as it said, several times actually, but then after everthing's done it started analyzing for a while, then stuck at S/W something, then it says my phone has the latest software installed, then it says no phone connected (???) and the "Start Upgrade" button wont even work. I searched this up several times and encountered some peeps whose phones didnt work either, and some who even bricked their phone (O.O)

    so im asking if theres a safe way to do this upgrade in US

    if theres no really safe way then does the upgrade worth risking and the bricked phone fixable? i mean the phone goes well and ill survive without the live wallpapers, and i got this from my parents and i wont get another one for at least a couple of years from now so its like treasure to me :D

    i think this thing came from Brazil or Portugal, 'cause the manual in the box says Portugues or something like that on the top.

    The KDZ Updater doesn't brick the device if you do it correctly...
