LG Optimus 3D P925G update???

Ok...so the fact the lg optimus was released running froyo 2.2 is absurd however it is even worse that it has been almost a year since gingerbread was released and it still does not have it....I have read this week that the 2.3 update was released and that all of the phones should have it by now however I am still not able to get the update.. I spoke to LG and they said that Rogers was one of the last and they did not know when it would be released...Any idea on why this is happening?? Is it beeing help back by Rogers to approve or is it LG's fault? Ice cream sandwich is now out and LG's dual core flagship phone does not have it??? what gives??

You might be able to get the new GB build. But make sure you back everything up!

 

I was on stock V10C today. But then I soft bricked my LG trying to install CWM. Just got stuck at LG Logo. Following advise on the forums, I removed my SIM card and SD card, powered off the phone, and started LG Mobile Update. Go to the top Menu under Customer Support and click "Recovery Phone".

I entered my IMEI and it gave me a pop-up listing LG P925G. When I clicked OK it started downloading a 400ish MB file. Which I thought was odd since I downloaded the V10C file and it was only 300ish MB.

When finished my phone rebooted and it took a good 2 minutes to boot up. Now my Android version is listed as 2.3.5
Baseband L6260_MODEM_SIC_01.1042.00
Build GRJ90
Software REV: LGP925G-V20C-DEC-22-2011

So I def. have the new update. Now, don't try and brick your phone like I did but try the emergency Firmware recovery from the LG Update app, maybe that will force it to download. Just as a note my unit is SIM unlocked, don't know if that helps.

I know that Rogers requires a different baseband than providers in europe wich could be one of the delays. Rogers will also need to add their branding to the rom prior to the update being shipped. The only optimus3d phones that received the update to my knowlage up to now are the unbranded unlocked phones in europe.

 

From my experience between LG and rogers there will be quite a bit of delay.

ok..so i called LG today and spoke to a tech support guy and was told that is was Rogers that was holding back the process. The other carriers have finalized the latest build however Rogers was the one holding the release back and that they heard it would be the middle or end of december before it would most likely be relealsed. I am having issues with the software and quite a few apps are not working properly and was told by the app developpers that 2.3 should fix most of the issues...So if anyone is listenning please put a move on this! I still can't believe it has taken this long to released an already outaded update for a flagship phone....and from what i read today in Mobilesyrup LG plans on releasing ICS for the Optimus 3D....I can only imagine will take them another year to push the update to our phones...I thought this was over with the galaxy S and Sony X10  fiasco. Please realize that we are stuck with our phones for 30 months now versus the 24 months and that not many people want to pay a couple hundred dollars on top of the handset cost to get an early HUP..My 2 cents

Unfortunately, Rogers already has your money, so if you think they give even a slight crap about you, I have some lovely waterfront property in Louisiana I'd love to sell you.

 

Rogers is run by horrible horrible people who just want to separate you from your money as quickly as possible and don't really care how you're left once that's done.

 

Sorry.

Just spoke with LG briefly, I was told that we will NOT be getting the GingerBread update at all.  Instead they are skipping it and we will be getting ICS instead.  He would not disclose any sort of time frame for the update though.

If this is true... it is terrible that they are holding an update that is available like this.

I sent another nasty message to LG about this. Why did the rest of the world get the update to 2.3? Why would rogers not release it as well? All they had to do is keep the rogers bloatware out of it...I imagine they just don't want to spend the money to pay a programer to add the crapware...So dissapointing...there are so many bugs, force restarts and freezing up that I am going to toss the phone in the garbage. Oh and there are quite a few apps that won't run at all on the phone. Hopefully they read this messages and convey the message to whomever is making these decisions. Keep the bloatware out of the build and just release the stock version that LG built for the optimus 3D. AT&T managed to do it so why can't rogers? And if they are waiting for ICS can you imagine how long it will take for them to release it? By then the warranty on the phone will be expired and most people will have got a new phone by then. I already ruined a phone doing the stock upgrade (acer liquid e)  and Acer nor rogers would help me because the warranty was expired. I was stuck with a bricked phone on a carrrier provided update...not cool to say the least...

hmmmm......i am very disappointed how some other countries have their updates for their phone (including op.3D) but we dont have it.......2.2.2 wow...really??? people who uses this phone probably knows that phone freezes time to time for weird reasons. I am wondering if update will solve the problem. I saw a post about p925g and it sounds like there will be no more updates..... Sometime lg update tells me i have an update...i get so excited...but after they direct me to this update program , they tell me how v10c is the newest version or today, they download this 300MB worth of update file and applied it but nothing happen......ahhhhh !!!!!!! 2.2.2 is falling wayyyyy behind.....i want an update.... Anyone has any idea about where this update is going???

So Im guessing we arent getting the update.

If theyre skipping GB then the ICS update isnt coming to LG phones until the end of 2012. And rogers will probably be late on that too.

I can't begin to put into words how unimpressed I am with both LG and Rogers right now. I bought this phone due to the understanding that Rogers had committed to a Gingerbread update for October 2011. Here we are in the last bit of Jan of the next year and finding out that we probably won't get Gingerbread (Even though Europe and Asia have it) and MIGHT get ICS late summer.

 

VERY Poorly handled on both sides, LG for not making the update available via their update software and Rogers for not performing even basic PR via communication regarding the delay/dismissal of Gingerbread.

I also just updated to Android 2.3.5 today.  It was actually pretty painless, and my initial impression is that I am getting faster download speeds; my phone seems to be running data-intensive applications faster than before.  Gotta like that.

Has anyone had any problems after doing the 2.3 update? I'm not too sure mine completed properly. It shows 2.3.5 for the android version. However, I don't see any improvement in data speeds or performance. Some things are slightly different. I also noted that a wipe of the phone did not happen like the software said it would. Anyone else experience this? Should I just manually perform the wipe and check it after?

For anyone who wants this and has not downloaded it yet, for the love of god dont!

 

Ever since I updated mine I have had nothing but problems.

 

People send me texts, I dont always receive them

People call me, it doesnt always ring.

Before the update I had 4G everywhere I went.  Now I can rarely get a data connection.  I get notifications for emails (set to push notifications) that I received several hours ago because it can barely ever get a data connection.  Horribly frustrating when I use to use data ALL the time.  I'm now stuck in a contract paying for a 6GB data plan that I can't even use anymore.

 

I'm taking mine back to rogers so that they can try their hand at repairing it since it's still under warranty.  If they can't fix it then I imagine they will offer me a replacement - if the replacement O3D doesnt work I pray to god that they offer to replace it with something else so that I can go back to having a functioning smart phone.

 

LG has released an update for european O3D's that fix the radio/phantom call issues but of course Rogers is holding up the update from making it's way to us.  Lord knows when/if we will ever get it.

 

My other option is waiting for the ICS update later this year but LG announced it would release the update in the 3rd quarter of 2012 which means Rogers will sit on it for months and then finally let us have it.  Horrible horrible experience owning this **bleep** LG.

I've been having the same problems since the update. My connection wireless and data will "freeze" and when this happens my O3D gets quite hot and the battery dies fast. I have spoken with @RogersHelps and they tell me to arrange replacement (which comes with a $35 fee) and get the same phone.... I have a feeling I will end up going back to them again with the same issues. I'm tired of not getting texts or calls because of botched firmware. And for those waiting for ICS, LG has stated that the Canadian O3D will not get this update. The O3D we have is actually a renamed LG Thrill 4G. If you look on the "About Phone" section of the settings menu it will have the model of p925g, the actual O3D is p920. It's sad that the only phones that get timely OS updates are the Nexus phones. If I get another O3D from Rogers and have the same problems I will not settle for anything but a Samsung Galaxy Nexus as a replacement for a 2nd faulty O3D.

Is it true we will not be getting ICS on O3D ? Please an answer from Rogers !

I have never heard that so i do not know where you got that from. Rogers will not comment on updates if they have no info on. There is a thread where they will give more info on updates when they get the info. They will update that list as well.

Due to other issues, I got this update. Pretty much painless, but I get weird battery life issues. From time to time I get battery drain at the same speed as if I'm playing a CPU intensive game. This happens while the phone is 100% idle. I am watching for bandwidth issues, but haven't caught anomalies.

Overall I am happy with the Gingerbread update,except for that issue.

Just wondering when the LG optimus 3D is going to recieve ice cream sandwich update. I have been reading that the update would be in the 3rd quarter of this year but not seeing anything on the rogers site about updates yet??
