I'm on T-Mobile, as is hecatae, so it could be that Orange haven't finished bloating Gingerbread yet. I still can't get LG's site to show me the list of available roms, so can't check what Orange are on. Where did you see it say that it's got an upgrade available?

If you remove your battery & make a note of your phone's serial number, then go here:

csmg.lgmobile.com:9002/svc/popup/model_check.jsp?model=LGP500&esn=123ABCD456789

Change 123ABCD456789 to your own serial number. You should see something like this:

LGP500 ATMUBK 123456789012345 123ABCD456789

Make a note of the number highlighted in red, then go to:

csmg.lgmobile.com:9002/csmg/b2c/client/auth_model_check2.jsp?esn=123456789012345

That should show the latest version available on your network. Mine shows V20G_00. What's yours?

The Orange P500 is on a list on the LG Suite so I assumed I could upgrade but every time LG Suite says Ive the latest software,thanks for your help I think the best thing is for me to ask at an Orange shop about 2.3.3 Tried the hidden menu pager & SW version is LG-P500-V10r HW version P500_REV_1_1

Orange UK can take ages to release updates, which is ironic when you consider they are part of Everything Everywhere along with T-Mobile UK.

I'm working on a generic 2.3.3, i'm using the T-mobile UK 20g update as the base, removing the t-mobile boot animation, removing all unnecessary t-mobile apps, etc

I'm working through the T-Mobile version, uninstalling bits & pieces, but was going to post about it. What have you been able to remove? I'm struggling to get rid of Mobile Jukebox and Mobile TV & Video, among others. I seem to have got rid of whatever was keeping it awake all the time, though. I was going to have a search & see if I could find the annoying T-Mobile boot animation & ditch that, too.

I'd definitely be interested in getting a generic version, when you're ready for it to be tested. :rolleyes:

On a seperate note, I used UOT Kitchen to change my battery icon to a circle last night. The zip wouldn't flash, I had to copy files in manually. When I get a chance, I'll have a look and see how to automate it.

currently identifying the junk apps, still looking at hiddenmenu.apk and wondering what it is. /me thinks google will be my friend

boot animation will be in /system/media

anyone a fan of the lg launcher, does not effect the pull down menu if you remove it

I'll be no help here probably but I noticed a lot of "hidden" apps that titanium backup noticed on the LG that I couldn't see in the apps drawer.

A simpler boot animation to speed up the process would be nice.

I use LauncherPro like I was recommended to on the OSF.

Dial 3845#*500# to get to the hidden menu. Or not, if you uninstall it!

I've installed LauncherPro, just because I'm used to it. I'm not keen on the LG launcher, but you're never going to please everyone if you choose something different.

I'd write a list of what I removed, but... they're gone & I can't remember! Any more that I get rid of, I'll make a list.

Nothing obvious in /system/media, looks like boot animation is in /system/bin. Hmm, tried renaming or movin it to the SD cardbut it's still running.

You guys know yours stuff! :) That hidden menu interesting although don't think much to play with in there for me that is fun lol.

Yeah LauncherPro seems to be the consensus - especially on the Blade forum anyway.

Can you or Hec confirm a few stock apps and I can safely delete through Titanium Backup then??? I will backup of course. The battery seems worse than my blade so maybe that will help?!

I've deleted these ones:

Alarm clock

Analog clock

App Advisor

Bookmarks

Connection Manager

Dual clock

Facebook

FM radio

Home screen tips

Memo

News & Weather

TopApps

Twitter

Video Player

Weather

some apks from /system/app

I'll probably ditch these next:

E-mail

Gmail

Power Control (if I can find it)

Youtube

Oh no, if it was just phone & text, I'd still have a Nokia 5110!

I forgot to put that I use K9 instead of the other e-mail apps. I've still got Clock on there if I want to set an alarm.

If I want Facebook/Twitter, I'll probably use Tweetdeck. Similarly, if I want a weather widget, I'll use Fancy Widgets. I can set that to only update every few hours or so. I couldn't find that in the installed Weather one.

I know a lot of people make a fuss about the FM Radio, but I can't think of a time that I'll ever want it.

If the Office app can edit docs offline, I might keep it, otherwise it goes in the pile as well.

I see there's a DivX logo on the box. If that's linked to the video player app, then I might reconsider it.

Most of the rest are just tripe.

Re Divx, yes there is a number on the phone somewhere you register it on the divx website but i couldn't find the link so gave up!

Thanks for the apps advice. I mind on the blade deleting the stock sms app caused havoc with GO SMS! Do you recommend leaving it on this one too??

Cool! Thanks! What about the stock browser? I use Skyfire but just wondered if like SMS I better not delete it!?

On another note, just noticed when I switch the phone off and on that my widgets aren't saving! And my launcherpro is changing to the LG one! Any idea guys????

I've currently got 165MB used out of 190MB. Wow, that is a lot of junk still. 64MB cache seems a bit wasteful as well.

Thanks for that! WIll copy you on some of them then. Do you just phone and text then or just found better alternatives to most of them?! :)

I already replied to this, no idea where that's vanished to.

Yes, I use alternatives is the short answer. K9 for e-mail being the main one.
