is it worth to update this version:
2.1 Black Edition by Quarx (-->german)
to this "new" version (i don't know the language, but i hope englisch):

Europe Open V20B http://csmg.lgmobile..._00/V20B_00.kdz
:)


what is the difference?

Not nice........ ;)

Yesterday i upgraded with the KDZ updater form 1.6 to the new V20B Greek rom and my phone was working OK but i got the feeling 1.6 was a bit more responsive.
I read al lot of messages from people stating the greek V20A was working smoother compared to 1.6, so today i flashed the greek V20A using de KDZ updater.

But now my data connection 3G is no longer working, it was fine yesterday after the first flash to V20B so i reflashed back to the same version V20B that was working OK yesterday but you guessed it right ..... NO 3G. Tried many differen APN settings, factory resets but no solution.

I searched the forum and found a lot of 3G problems with the 2.1 update, but no solution, maybe i have not searched good enough ....

Is there a solution for my problem, or is my phone from now on a much lesser "smart" phone.

Update:
:) YES YES all back to normal again normal 3G connection !
Seems that a standaard factory reset is not enough, a hard reset did the trick !!

LG GT540 hard reset LG Optimus full reset
WARNING: All of your data and installed applications will be lost!

Press both VOLUME UP + HOME + SEARCH buttons for 5 sec.

Hmmm... interesting... I'm updated from Europe Open 20A to 20B - smoothly. Update did NOT erase anything but it is UPDATED!!! :)

Of course, I did a factory reset afterwards as caution. ;)

Well, I finally got the balls to try again and it worked out pretty good. I flashed the Europe Open V20B and rooted with Z4Root.
Only thing is I don't get any boot animations - no LG logo, no Android logo (I do get the Android sound) - just black screen...

Anyone else get that or know of a fix?

Thanks for your support!!!

Guys I want to thank everyone in this thread for all the valuable input.

I just flashed my GT540 to the open european V20B and all went smoothly at my first attempt. I used the KDZ with windows enabler as explained previously in this thread.

The only thing I found not working so far is the sims 3. I don't really care for that but would like to try it out if anyone has ideas on how to make it work they are welcome. The EA logo appears but then it crashes back to applications menu.

Big thanks to all of you!

Hi, just go to LG official site from your computer, find GT540 Optimus and there is a link to download additional files for Sims 3 to work (inside archive is a step-by-step tutorial). Archive is ~11MB.
;)

Cheers!

p.s.-Let me know if you find it... if you don't find I will post a link. :)

I did find it, but it was a bit more than 11MB... more like 84 ;)

I must say I'm not liking 2.1 very much... I'm not saying it's worse than 1.6... but there are a few things I don't like. eg. When I'm typing an sms or any other thing why can't I turn off the sound from key strokes?

And why can't I choose a notification sound from my SD card, only the android default ones? I want to have my own incoming sms notification sound...

I mean... those seem like basic functionalities to me... no?

And btw, merry Xmas to y'all :(

EDIT: And another thing, no file manager??

You CAN turn off the sound from keystrokes under settings of LG IME (Settings, Language & Keyboards) ;)

If you need to put your own sound file for notification use RingsExtended from Android Market. ;)
If you need file manager, GO to Android Market and download one - there are plenty of them (personaly I use ASTRO - paid version) ;)

EDIT: merry Xmas to you too! :P

My dear Android phone is not for you ;)

You can:
- turn off keystroke sound
- add notification sound from SD card or any other sound files (try Tone Picker from market)
- add file manager from market. It is free. I prefer (ES file explorer)

And btw, merry Xmas

You don't need a special app for that, just put the sounds you want in sdcard/media/notifications and you can pick them.

The official German update to Android 2.1 for the LG GT540 is now available! Finally!

I used the "LGMobile update" program (which is auto-launched from the "LG PC Suite IV" program).
