I purchased my wife an lg revolution on Feb 7,2012 it will not update to android 2.3. I have an lg revolution as well that was able to update to android 2.3.4 in November. I talked to a rep at a Verizon store he told me that i would have to contact LG, Lg said that they do not do the updates, Verizon does all of the updates. i have kernel version 2.6.32.9-perf build number VS910VZ6 and Software version VS910ZV6 android version 2.2.2. Also i have done a soft reset and a hard reset. i have went to about phone>software update>and check new it says no new software update available which i know is wrong.LG also told me that Verizon could send the update to my phone. thanks

I finally got mine to update.  Under Settings, About Phone, Software Update. It took several attempts but finally completed the download and update cycle 2/27.  Now showing Android version 2.3.4, SW version VS910ZV7. Now I am having difficulty maintaining a data connection 😞  Pulled the battery and looks as if it might work now. Flipping between 3G and 4G.  Okay, seems to be working now, but will have to see if it continues. I had power cycled a number of times since the update with mixed results.  Not sure if it is worth the trouble to update.

My Revolution is still at 2.2.2.  Software status "software update" says "update successful" & is dated January 28, 2012.  Software "check new" says "No New Software Update Available"   What the heck????  How do I get the latest & greatest update?????

Good Afternoon matt423,

I'm sorry to hear of the difficulties you are experiencing in attempting to update your software. The latest available software version for the LG Revolution is:  VS910ZV7. I have included additional information below to assist you with verifying the software and processing the update. I apologize we are not able to manually send the update to your handset.

My LG Revolution is working much better now on VS910ZV7. I found the App Juice Defender was killing the data connections. I dropped that and switched to Android Booster. I can now stay connected even when it is flipping between 3G and 4G.

I went through both processes also and I have the same info as you do.  This is crazy.  What good is a "smart"-phone if it won't/can't update to the most current version.  Very annoyed
