Anonymous, 19 May 2013could you please describe step by stepSad news friends it turns out the "cold boot" gps lock can be sporatic still...after it locks on it can take 5-15 seconds to get another lock, but I'll keep editing the gps file see if I can get a good file for the 4x'ers. Someone asked step by step to edit gps.conf...Look it up there are a few tricky steps and you need root access.

I updated mine and it's worth it! Everything looks bit better and if I could downgrade it, I wouldn't do it. List of changes you can find here on forum...
After upgrade I suggest you to do a factory reset. That way phone will work nice and smooth. :)

I think the GPS might be causing my time zone to change to Taipei everytime the phone is turned on, either in automatic or manual time zone. (if it's not the GPS, does anyone know how to fix this? It's messing with a important reminder, turning it off)
There're also several apps tagged as system, how do I remove them?

and frankly i dont think updating is any good or better at all.
just use v10h and youl be fine theres not much point in updating as theres not much interesting added.
in my opinion update to 4.1 if you want custom roms otherwise theres no reason to.
If I update the OS, can I easily return to the previous one if I don't like it (I don't mind erasing my data and doing a factory reset)? Or I'll be stuck (I know there's downgrading, but seemed complicated, wanted something easy and quick)?
Is it worth to update? Is there some place with the list of changes?
Thanks a lot
AnonD-141228, 22 May 2013Thaaaaanks so much!
I was being fooled by some of the contacts having a little sim icon next ... moreit bugged me at first also.
after a while i realised some numbers where from whatsapp some where on the phone and some where on the sim.
i ended up syncing everything to sim and phone and then set it to phone display only and everything worked.

I was being fooled by some of the contacts having a little sim icon next to it, so I thought the contacts were stored on my phone and only rthose with the icon were on the sim
Of course there is! Settings - Sound - Phone ringtone - Press + in upper right corner and select file you want for your ringtone. :)

AnonD-141228, 21 May 2013Is there a way (even by an app) to set different MP3 ringtones to my contacts?
Thanks a lot!yes there is.
it goes like this :
1.copy all contacts from your sim to your phone as its not possible from sim (the sim does not support storing ringtone data on it).
to do this open your contacts open the menu and select import/export there cope all your sim contacts to your phone.
2.now to prevent double contacts in your contact list go to the contact app again if your no longer there and select display options (in the menu (right button) or whatever its called in english (its the option below import/export) and select phone.
-now simply go to your contat list click on a contact and click the edit button on top (the white icon with the pen) and set your ringtone with either android system (this requires the purple music app to be enabled and your mp3 ringtones to be in the ringtones folder on your internal SD )or with a custom app like es file explorer to browse to the file and select it.
some notes :
-if you added pics to your contacts you might have to redo this.
AnonD-147743, 21 May 2013I'm using this phone for half year now and it's nothing but trouble.
Most problematic areas... moreinstad of simply posting a complaint mabyt make some efford and post your actiual prblems because i have NEVER heard of bluetooth issues call issues and the camera ''issues'' where fixed half a year a go and alternative fixes where available from day 1 if you bothered to look.
say what you have tried what didnt work what apps you have installed and people can help rather then listen to another claim of a bad device which is a 1 off so far based on your info.
ive never seen anyone with your problems so it must be something you did which is fixed by a reset or you have a bad piece of hardware in which case you return it get a new one and its fixed.
Is there a way (even by an app) to set different MP3 ringtones to my contacts?
Thanks a lot!

I'm using this phone for half year now and it's nothing but trouble.
Most problematic areas:
When working on these fields, i never know when it will lockup, freeze, auto-restart,..., everytime it gets in slow motion (so much for 4 hi-speed cores).
I called service, they say i can send them phone, but all they will do is master reset!? So problems are there to stay, if you intend to use it, but if you intend to just look at it and make an occasional call, then it can be accepted.
I found out, that it helps, if i manualy restart it at least once a day, in this case, when fresh started, it works better for some time.
One thing is certain, i'll never buy another lg.
