    Android 2.2 is finally available for the Ally!



    If you download the LG Mobile Update tool, you can install froyo through usb.



    You can download the software through this link http://csmg.lgmobile...obileUpdate.exe



    install the program, install usb drivers for your phone if needed, and then the software should detect that an update is available.



    update size is about 120mb and took about 15-20 minutes to install



    Edit:

    I unrooted my phone before the update, just to be safe.



    Also looked through my apps.

    i previously uninstalled a lot of the crapware verizon put on the phone. This update installed / reinstalled... 3G mobile hotspot, Amazon Mp3, City ID, LG Social, Myspace, My Verizon Mobile, News &Weather, Skype, and Visual VM



    Edit 2:

    New version of thinkfree office, looks like it doesn't support google docs anymore.

    The system app folder may have been wiped and reinstalled. Apps I Installed in the system folder like swype are gone now.

    ran a test with quadrant and it went up from about 370-380 before the update to 431

    Just got it and tho some re-configuration is needed for the phone, I am loving it as I can finally move my apps to the SD card



    Also I will need to get used to the new layout on youtube and the browser and such... but I am thrilled - this is essentially saving the LG Ally

    I want this OTA. I don't want to screw up the process. Was it real easy to do?

    extremely easy - I did it this way instead of waiting for VZ's over the air because 1- I am impatient, and 2- I feared VZ tampering with the update and adding their own non-essential, resource and memory hog crappy bloatware.



    follow the detailed guide and downloading instructions on the site



    in brief for LGVS740:



    remove your phone from the hub (do not do this update from the hub)

    unmount & remove the sd card from your phone (settings>sd phone card & storage>unmount sd card (then remove when the notification says it is safe to do so)

    be sure your battery is more than half full

    be sure USB debugging is enabled (settings>applications>development>check usb debugging)

    disable and shut down Anti-virus and Firewall software on your computer. (I didn't have to do this, but some have experienced issues so to eliminate one possibility, I added this)

    download & install the LG Mobile Support Tool to PC http://www.lg.com/us/support/mc-support/mobile-phone-support.jsp

    then click the detailed guide tab http://www.lg.com/us/support/mc-support/mobile-phone-support.jsp

    and then click Guide Start

    watch the detailed guide in its entirety so you know what to expect (can be viewed as you go along the steps with the software)

    LGMobile Support Tool window will then require you to install the USB driver - click the button *Install USB Driver*

    Double-click on LGVS740 and the driver will install

    Your phone should now be connected via USB cable to your computer.



    you cannot make nor receive calls/txts and once the phone is recognized by the software, do not unplug it from your pc until it is completed.

    once done, your phone will restart and you can remove it from the usb

    Restart your computer's AV and Firewall software.

    shut down the phone and reinsert your sd card and turn on the phone and get to reconfiguring your settings and moving apps to your sd card



    when you turn it back on go to settings>about phone

    Android version: 2.2.1

    Baseband version should read: VS740MVD.6040.1001

    the last line

    SW Version should read: VS740ZVD



    (Does not include Flash 10.1 - and never will)

    I'm on hold for the moment because I don't have enough battery to do the upgrade. More later when I'm charged.

    what have you been trying for 3hours? Are you not able to download LG's Updater or are you stuck somewhere in the process?
