Help Android 2.1 Update NZ


Oct 26, 2010
Update received today from LG

Thank you for emailing LG Electronics Australia and New Zealand Pty Ltd.

We are awaiting Vodafone's approval to release the update. Unfortunately they haven't advised when this might be - but we hope it is within the next few weeks.

I hope this has been of some assistance.

So we just sit and wait "Yawn"
Finally - I updated LG PC Suite and then it advised that I had software upgrade for the ph - After 38 minutes of downloading and install - It's in and problem free - Yaaa - Interestingly the LG PC Suite thought I was in the states but as long as it updated I was happy.

Torque now works which was why I got the ph in the first place

All good

On a NZ bought phone from Vodafone

Firmware version now quoted as 2.1- update 1

Kernel Version
Thu DEC 2 18.48.38 IST 2010

Software version GT540-V20d-DEC-2010

All seems to work just fine. A slightly different look, new wallpapers, and re register to gmail, a bit smoother.
Had to start from scratch on a few things, ie dictionary, bookmarks. But no issues remember follow guide do back ups. No hassles, allow a good hour or 2, conversion only took about 20 mins, but customizing takes the time.

My software is V10A.

Sounds like if you buy one new from Vodafone at the mo it comes with 2.1?

I've been tempted to just install the Australian one and change my APN to suit but I might just wait a bit and see what comes up.

It could be my windows 7 64bit system as I've had so much trouble with the
updater program and the LG PC suite just refuses to work....
Might try it on a freind's XP box and see if I have any more luck.

If anyone know's how to get their hands on the NZ rom I'm all ears! :D

I'm constantly trying to update my phone to 2.1, but it ain't workin for me. Software version is V10A, and Kernel version is 2.6.29.

Firstly, the LG PC Suite won't even detect my phone. Also the updater detects the phone, but halfway through the initial check (before I can even hit "Start Updating") it stops. The program doesn't freeze it just doesn't move forward - I've let it go for about 15 minutes but it still does nothing. It stops when it's checking the phone connection.
I've found if I quickly unplug it and plug it back in (I know it shouldn't), it continues to check everything else so I can start updating. But after that, the updater itself stops at 40% at the "Analysis" stage.

Can anyone help or give me some advice on what to do? I'm guessing this is probably an issue with my handset?

Thanks! :)
