    I manage to snag one of the first in the UK via Clove, and love most of it, I suppose its Wear I am not to sure of yet, my last watch was the Sony Smartwatch 2, tons more apps than Android Wear, and battery life to die for, mine lasted about 4 days, but the low resolution screen was its downfall. I found the Sony so much easier to use, guess I will have to learn Wear... mind you I do fancy the Asus for a going out watch... use this G Watch R for work.

    You probably have some downloads stuck in the queue, check the download icon and remove anything which seems to be stuck, also you could check in settings, applications, running services, and you can stop the dmclient service, you can then recheck for updates and hopefully it should start downloading again for you.

    No the previous install was GR5 standard kernel.
    I do have an external SD card in, that is what I was flashing from via Paul's cwm 4.0.0.5
    Tried again with wipes, and same result.

    To resolve this, I removed battery and booted into software install mode (power+down volume), downloaded the KDZ V20m rom and following the process described here (http://forum.xda-developers.com/showthread.php?t=1327929) I installed the rom
    Initially it errored with messages about corrupt partitions, but pressing restart caused it to reinstall correctly

    So now stock V20m and seems all good again... will upgrade again to GR6 today (wish me luck )

    Okay... not sure what this is connected with....
    Just baked a standard GB rom, wipe and factory reset, flashed rom from sd card all the same as normal. Ext3, standard kernel, BB from previous GR5 install
    Started setup, logged in to google (after wifi)
    phone seemed quite normal.
    Restarted the phone
    and now boot loop.

    so
    wiped again, wiped dalvic cache too
    re-installed same rom
    and still boot loop
    Just get the LG logo and then black screen goto line 1

    any ideas?

    Steve

    edit:
    connected to charger, same thing
    left disconnected a few minutes
    now it will not boot, black screen permanently on... is this a first?

    left a few minutes and boot loop again.
    I will try a KDZ install, but wonder why it broke after a reboot ??

    Steve
    p.s. this is not connected to the email issue, didnt even get that for lol

    It's from stock Froyo as FR14 or whatever version we got to....I can restore it using Titanium Backup, but someone else must be having this problem..or maybe not lol.
    com.android.email-8-2.2.zip

    It's listed in Ti Backup and Applications as Email 2.2 , whereas the LG stock version is listed as Email 1.0 and the GB one is listed as Email 2.3.4

    the actual filename I think is com.android.email

    When I get this problem, which only happens on Exchange email accounts, restoring Email 2.2 over Email 2.3.4 fixes the problem. I haven't heard anyone else with a similar problem though, but It is reproduceable.
    I use accounts on both Exchange 2003 and 2010 so it's not the server side playing up.

    Thanks

    Any chance you can include the option to install eMail v2.2 instead of the current GB version, The 2.2 one is the only version I can get working with multiple exchange accounts without it asking to be setup every time I start it.
    Both the LG and GB versions fail to save the configuration details, this happened also with GR5
    Thanks

    Home screen shortcuts
    Trying to create a shortcut on the home screen to a html file stored on the tablet, it runs fine in the browser
    but if I create a shortcut and save to home screen it always errors with application not installed.

    The shortcut contents is just the url file:/// etc etc and I would assume it should initially bring up a dialog box asking for the default app to start it...

    edit: forgot to mention... the home screen short cuts work fine for websites (http://www.google.com etc, but not for a local html file, file:///index.html etc

    any help appreciated

    Steve

    edit again: Just found out, the default android browser will not open files, only those served by a web server...

    I've tried SwiftkeyX and bought Smartkey and Flext9 and the ICS one is much more accurate for my stubby fingers, the prediction isn't a patch on the Swiftkeyx and hasn't the bells and whistles of the Flext9 but it types what I expect it to which is important to me.

    I agree, i've lost data connectivity once or twice unsure about voice as I am not very popular lol, a restart fixes that, and non LG email client doesn't work on exchange, but installing v2.2. fixes that too. But a good every day build.

    and Thanks Paul.

    ICS Keyboard
    Just tried this iCS keyboard from the Android Market (https://market.android.com/details?id=inputmethod.latin.ported&hl=en)
    works very well so far, and actually does have haptic feedback, which other keyboards I have tried don't, even when switched on.
    Supposedly pulled from ICS...

    I examined the backup I made from Stock V20L by Titanium Backup, the email was v2.2 NOT v2.3.4 as in this rom and in the latest Gapps
    Using Titanium Backup I uninstalled the email apk and restored the one out of the stock V20L rom...
    Have only tested for a short while but it is working on 2 exchange mailboxes.

    Can you check the V20L rom Paul and confirm if the email apk is 2.2 or 2.3.4

    Thanks

    Just back on GR5 after trying CyanogenMod CM7 and stock V20L

    And I seem to have the same problem as I had with GR4, hence trying CM7

    I use the stock (not LG) email app for 2 exchange accounts, and in this one it doesn't save the information entered.
    I have set it up twice and it goes all the way through, even down to me being able to receive emails, and when I go into the email client after a few minutes it offers the username password dialogue to setup the account.
    I can only assume it is GR4 & GR5 which have a common fault (sorry Paul ) as stock Froyo, CM7 and stock GB work fine in this regard.

    This time I cant get it to save 1 account... I will try a few restarts and set it up again, hopefully someone may have an answer.
    PS I know I can use K9 email, but its not as good as the stock client for what I need.

    Steve

    edit: wiped, wiped cache and dalvik cache before flashing GR5
