I am hoping on an upgrade
There was an announcement on LG's site saying that we are getting one for all Optimus One phones in due course, but I do not know if the Optimus M is considered an Optimus One. The press release is here:
Thanks let's see what happens
everywhere i look they call the Optimus M an Optimus One phone
Metro PCS goes with LG Optimus One as their first Android phone – Android and Me
So there is a chance we might get that update when it rolls out.
LG Optimus One Series Will Receive Android 2.3 | Android Community
LG: Optimus One will get Android 2.3 upgrade
LG promises Gingerbread support for Optimus handsets | Android Atlas - CNET Blogs
They will provide the update, And support as well. It's just a matter of when. If I had to guess, I'd say give it at least a month to three months. ^^.
i cant wait. i hear it is much better on power and runs much smoother.
I read the entire thread ...its already august an still no update but my lg optimus.m isrunning 2.2.2 yea so I say maybe by november
I heard that because metro is calling the optimus M end of life they may not upgrade it to gingerbread.
yeah they have discontinued the Optimus M from what I heard and that was their way of saying "we not going through all that update trouble, bitches"
2.2.2--was that an update from LG? I rooted/rom'd awhile back, so i havent tried getting updates from them in awhile lol
Im with you t_d... there was an upgrade, and we didnt know about it?!
quick question: what did they changed in 2.2.2 that wasnt in 2.2.1?
From the number of thread topics NO ROOT ACCESS
Basically what they were trying to achieve with the 2.2.1 update, they perfected. I see no reason to update.
They were trying to stop us from rooting? lol. I laugh at thee, LG!
Phone companies should quit that, and go more in the direction of warranty-only enforcement, because it's reasonable.
For example, Mazda (I used to fix their cars at a dealer), has a basic policy as part of their warranty rules that says essentially, if they catch you racing your car, they'll void your warranty.
Just the same, they sell three different levels of performance parts to tweak and upgrade your Mazda. The lowest level is covered under manufacturer warranty like any other part of the car. The middle level has a moderate 12K mi/12 mo warranty on the parts alone if I remember right. The highest level has no warranties whatsoever, and is considered a category of race-only parts, and as such, I'm pretty sure will void your warranty, or are at least emphasized as not road legal.
Yes, Mazda will sell you parts they make/endorse that are not road legal, and will void your warranty.
But that's fine! Mazda is simply making their stance as follows: They will cover things that go wrong with your car under warranty, but if you do things that take the car beyond the scope of normal use and evidence of manufacturer defects, as much as they build their own race cars and love racing, they will refuse to take financial responsibility for your own adventures. But they sure as hell don't go in and try to stop you from doing any of it.
Summed up: If you wanna have fun, go for it, but they won't pay for it.
Every phone manufacturer should do the same thing, and just make it VERY clear. What we do with our phones is our own damn business, so they should stick with just voiding warranties upon discovering an owner has rooted, and stop trying to prevent us from doing it.
And And And, its not as if we are all screwheads... Where theres a will, theres a way. They keep wasting money on updates to keep folks from modifying, and we will keep finding ways to dismantle thier hard work.
They should put thier effort and money into something productive... like a flash update for the Op. M, or maybe even some 3g service. Ya know, the stuff they promised?
(End rant) lol
To be honest patching the root exploit is not the main reason for the 2.2.2 update, while I dont have that update or even know what it was technically for I think security, (patching the exploits) was only part of it. But even if it was not and patching it was the main focus it still is a good focus as exploits that allow malware or spyware can be a major problem too.
^^ for the typical phone user of course, not those that actively look for and root the phone, you can usually determine what is good and what isnt.
metropcs has 3g since 2 weeks ago...
Not everybody's getting it, as you can see in the active thread you're participating in about it. I'm not getting it, while aflick3 is, and we're both in DFW, along with mindlesszombie up there.
I don't know about 2 weeks either. I didn't get it until 3 days ago. I was also having some problems associated with it. I have another thread detailing that in the Optimus M main forum.
By the way, heres the like to my other thread detailing my problems with 3g.
if "like" means "link", then you posted no links.
Yes, Like should have been link. It's that ever wonderful spell correct; "correcting" a word when it thinks I put in a wrong word.
Any way, for some reason when I tried to put the link into the post while on my phone, it didn't work. I'm now on my computer, so here's the link
I noticed this evening that when we went from the Garland area, to the Marsh Lane and I-635 area of North Dallas, that I didn't have 3G coverage. When we came back home, I had it again. It seems that it's spotty coverage, that may explain why you don't have it where you are at. My wife still doesn't have it, even here at home while I do have the 3G coverage.
What prl does your wife's phone have?
