    I don't own a motion, nor have I ever owned an LG device, but even I can tell that's fake/dangerous. I wouldn't recommend anyone try that on their device.

    I think the link should be removed from thread so no one tries to follow the steps and then bricks....some people don't read anything at all and click on whatever links they find...

    It's been three months since I sent out the rebate form and I still haven't got my $50.00 rebate visa I think the email I got said I should get my rebate by the end of 2013

    Thing is, LG only updates for fixes unless the carrier pays em for a upgrade. I have yet to see Metro upgrade anything other than the Huawei Ascend from 2.1 to 2.2 and that was after they released a special edition that had 2.2. ;)

    I don't know about that, I wouldn't hold my breath.

    My wife has the lg motion, hers will also be blocked from any upgrades. The phone is fast, it works, suits all of her needs.

    My advice to anyone is hold off on any major upgrades and let the chips fall. Meaning, let others do the upgrade and keep an eye on the web and the forums for complaints. :)

    I read the offer on the Metro site and the rebate form. Did not see anything about having to by 2 phones. What did I miss or not see?

    I'd guess about the 16th of Never. :p

    Doesn't make any sense to update the Motion. It's done with.

    I compact other peoples problems
    deeply embedded in Florida swampland
    I upgraded from ICS to JB on my ASUS TF700T tablet.

    Can't say that I notice much difference. HAd to jump thru hoops to retain root, but I did. Maybe just a little bit smoother video playback... maybe. Maybe just a little bit smoother, more responsive web browser... maybe.

    Dunno, but JB didn't do much for me.

    Appreciate the info, but similar articles have been posted in the past for various LG Handsets and they're pretty much fake.

    As far as I'm aware, the motion isn't compatible with ROM Manager (although I'm prepared to be corrected on that).

    Fwiw, I'd strongly recommend no one try the process laid out in that "article", you'll end up with a shiny paperweight!
