    Hi fellow android users,

    Is it possible to upgrade android 1.6 to 2.1 without phone manufacturer's tools and will it work in any country?

    I have LG optimus GT540F and LG Australia is not keen on releasing any updates :mad:.

    Thanks,

    Mano.

    Welcome to the Android Forums!

    Unfortunately updating Android is not as simple as installing a new version of the OS. The new ROM image would require device dependent drivers that are custom written for your specific phone.
