    I just got a text message from Verizon saying: "Your LG Ally will receive a software update soon. Before you can receive this update, your Ally needs to install a small app. Just click on this link to begin installation, then select 'market' --



    and the link is provided. (http://market.android.com/details -... upgrade)



    anyone know what this is about??



    thanks!

    I just got the same text message. When I clicked on the link that was sent & went to market it wouldn't do anything. I've never gotten one like this before so it seems a little strange.

    Exactly.



    since this hasn't been a common procedure for as long as i've had the phone, i also wondered about the validity - i did type the URL into my browser and it did pull up what looks like a legitimate webpage..... but still i thought i'd ask around before adding anything to the phone....

    I have LG Tools installed on my computer... today it says there's a new version for the Ally, so there is definitely something to the text message we're receiving from Verizon.

    There's no telling.. rooted Ally so not allowing any updates till I know what it is. Friend is bringing her Ally over tonight and I'll see what's up with it then.

    strange - i typed it in my browser exactly as the link showed in the txt msg and it brought me to the webpage just fine....



    i dunno -- i'm not doin anything with it yet either.



    if the upgrade isn't available yet anyhow, ima just wait before installing this "small app".

    i actually just got the text and didnt think anything was wrong so i clicked on the link and chose market and it said no such app could be found so i have no idea what to do about the whole upgrade. i tried it like 20 times and the same thing happened.

    Another Android forum had a thread on the 24th saying that rumor had it that the ally was getting 2.2.2 so maybe that was correct and this is the precursor. I downloaded the tool from the market following the link, but it didn't initialize yet.
