AnonD-62805, 06 Oct 2012hi guys, please anyone can tell me what is the latest android version available for this phone... moreit's got only official 2.3.4 since now, we are expecting ics but you can flash official cm10
I agree that cellphones are meant for sending and receiving sms and calls. But take note that these are smartphones we are using now which are very much capable of doing more than simple calls and test messages. For those who understand, harnessing the true capabilities of their gadgets means maximizing their efficiency becoming greatly helpful in some of everyday tasks. Those old 386 PCs from ages ago were meant to process documents. But that does not mean PCs nowadays should be confined to just that. We upgrade softwares to adapt to current IT development. Otherwise we stick to our old Nokia 3210s. "Ships are safe at docks, but that's not the purpose why they were built."
i'll try to answer your questions guys. First, the OB comes with stock Android 2.2 Froyo. Official Gingerbread 2.3.4 update is available via LG update. Just google it for step by step guide. (No ICS Update available!) In my experience, the gingerbread update fixed battery issues. My stock OB used to last 6 hours max. With GB it's almost 2 days. Second, for rooting guide please visit http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=dJIV8F2SwTo. Make sure you follow the steps. There is a danger of bricking your phone. Update all drivers via LG Mobile Update. You need to have smartflash, superuser, LG P970 Rom Converter and a couple of patched files. After you root your OB, you can now install custom ROMs from CyanogenMod or NoaV4. There is still no stable Custom ICS like CM9 for our OB. You can try install nightly build CM9 Roms. But i switched back to a custom GB 2.3 Rom from NOA V.4
Buy a pone with the latest os not these one or any lg pone coz their not concern with the updates
