Slightly offtopic question: Is it possible to delete stuff I don't want (like Sims 3 which doesn't work anyway and some other apps that apparently came with 2.1)? Since they're loaded into the phone's memory I can't delete them normally...

Oh by the way, I put everything back to the way it was before I installed apps2sd. Now it's working fine again :)

You can do that with Rooted phone and some app (Titanium Backup/Root explorer/ASTRO etc...)

What are the benefits of each ROM? I will be getting two GT540's for my sister-in-laws. They will be from Tesco, so presumably locked to Tesco Mobile. They will want to put their O2 sim card in it, but I think Tesco Mobile use O2s network anyway so their existing sim cards should work just fine.

Where did all these 2.1 ROMs come from? Why can't we just do OTA updates if all there companies have released their Eclair ROMs?

EDIT:

eppouk tells us that we can update the proper way:

Ofcourse you can, but it dosnt work all the time - the normal way. So its more fun to do it this way.

[*]If the phone still dont work, take your phone to local LG Waranty service or your Operator which sold you the phone. Tell them that after you turned the phone off, it dosnt seem to turn back on again. And also make some angry face, something like this: >:[ so the girls that work there would be scared and respect you.

Hi guys,

I'm sorry, I'm kinda new to this things..Just bought my first smartphone & want to clear things up before doing it.. I do have some questions & hopefully someone can answer it. .. ;)

1. I've read the tutorial & noticed that usb port at the back of the pc is strongly recommended to be used but if im using a laptop, can i use any usb ports then?

2. I'm from the Philippines, can I still update the my phone?.. if it's possible then what would be the best ROM for me?

Thanks in advance.. :(

East or West India is the best ;) ... tried the other 2.1 ROM's and I feel the indian version v20c feels much faster & has fewer default apps ;)

Sorry, but i dont give support with Apps2SD, since i didnt wrote that guide and i never used apps2sd by myself. Ill better wait for 2.2 then use it in a hacky way.

Try asking here: http://android.modaco.com/content-page/321...k-root/page/80/

Hi there.

I'm having a little trouble with my Optimus, I have upgraded to 2.1 (Romanian) and rooted (with 1 click) and installed apps2sd (with the last option apps and cache).

I have a 4GB microsd installed in the phone gaved 700 MB for apps2sd.

The issue that I have is that the phone freezes every time I use it for anything even if it is to check the weather (stays frozen for abou 30s every time). If I restart the phone it gives me an error that android.phone has stopped.

Any advice?

Thanks in advance, and a happy new year!!!

Well..

That was weird.

I did the update and everythngi and no errors came through.

The main menu was changed and everything so I thought I had installed 2.1

Turns out when I go to look at firmware it still says 1.6...

Should I reflash it then?

You flashed a v10 ROM.... Flash a v20 ROM instead.

Thanks very much.

My GT540 bricked when I was doing the update to Android OS via LG's tool. Got stuck at 4% and then phone kept getting stuck at LG screen.

Something I would like to add is that make sure the phone is plugged in using the USB cable and then switch it ON using the Voume down + Power combo
