Hi, I just installed v30b (europe open, I have google it so don't ask for link). Every thing seems to be ok but there are still some bugs from gingerbread left (when someone calls you the answer key is sometime a button and sometimes a slide, VERY ANNOYING!).
Anyway, waiting for official orange version that as they say it's expected at end of January.
All the best, Marius (Arad, Romania).

though delayed... the v30b ICS firmware update (not the beta rom) is better... there are few lags and bugs in some applications but I noticed the reaponsiveness of the screen...

Hey guys what if I just buy and use the phone with his stock firmware and settings. I do not know so much about smartphones but will be good for me if I just use it with the normal OS? Does it work nice with the original OS? Can I over-clock the processor and to play some games on smoothly way?

Okay, I live in UK so is there any good ICS official update for P970 suitable for me? If yes, where to download it and how to install it?

There are official ICS firmwares for optimus black, but it will take time to reach all users and it contains some noticeable bugs such as battery drains, so if u want to try u have to manually install it. But the UI is awesome, similar to optimus G.

One thing is clear: I will sell my P970 and never buy another LG phone in my life. Yes, the phone is perfect but you don't have a proper Operating System for it and LG doesn't care!!!

Hey guys, I'm thinking to go to P970 soon. So a few stupid questions..
What's the best and the newest OS for this phone? How can I install it? Where to download it? How to push the phone to do his best?
Sorry but I'm just confused of so many comments about apps and things, I'm a newbie and I do not know the names of the different android versions and etc.
