I also used to get INSUFFICIENT STORAGE error earlier while updating to JB in India. I took the backup data n factory reset the phone n tried updating but failed. I den jst changed my pc(earlier pc had 2gb of internal memory left) n updated from the new pc (wch had 100gb memory left) n it updated.. The process went on smoothly without any hiccups. JB is jst extended ICS in itself with some neat features bt after the update it hangs a lot and crashes some times. Camera has become better n touch is awesome. Editing images in contacts crashes. Games lag a lot now and hope LG fixes all those issues ASAP.

I got the update in the UK via LG software. It stalled during download, but eventually displays a message to continue. You have to be patient, and it is worth the wait. Cool new look and no problems so far

The problem is that the computer had only 1.9GB out of 150GB available and LG PC Suite could not start the update download. I hope that can fix your problem. Cheers.

I updated to JB India n it works smoothly...Only problem is the lagginess in some games and jerkiness in some. The contacts editing has got some problem and the phone cant multitask as it previously used to and crashes a lot sometimes. Touch has become more responsive as ever

Does anyone know if there is already a way to root the new firmware after a factory reset?

I had the same performance problem after upgrading to Jelly Bean, opening or shifting between apps was so laggy, it felt like and strong downgrade, before the update to JB it hadn't any problem at all.

So, I did a Factory Reset as some of you recommended and the phone it's back to normal, fast as the beginning, I re-downloaded my apps (Didn't restore my back up). It performs perfectly with the best of JB!.

Thank you guys!

I did a factory data reset and everything seems to be back to normal. Not sure yet if the battery performance was affected at all.

Phone was noticeably slow after the udate. But after a FACTORY DATA RESET, phone seems to be back to normal speed. But im not sure if it has affected my battery's performance as some have cited on their phones.
