LG Revolution finally receives Android 2.3 Gingerbread treatment

revolution update

Many of you may not be very happy with LG right now, after finding out that the G2x may not be getting an Ice Cream Sandwich update. On the good side, though, the LG Revolution is finally getting an update to Android 2.3 Gingerbread.

The wait has been long, and it seems like these 4G LTE devices were stuck with Froyo for a long time. Things are finally looking up for these smartphones, starting with the Thunderbolt receiving its Gignerbread update recently (again). Now that LG Revolution users get a taste of gingerbread, you will be able to enjoy all the features that Android 2.3 has to offer.

Verizon’s software update PDF also mentions the following improvements:

Email & Messaging

  • Email folders will now display in the correct order.
  • The maximum attachment size is now set correctly, even when the
    Exchange service is configured with unlimited size attachments.
  • Messages can now be stored on the SIM card. View these messages
    through the Settings menu, “Manage SIM card messages.”
  • Correctly set Out of Office without having to set a start or end time.
  • The popup message asking to delete accounts when changing the
    SIM card now displays correctly.

Device Features

  • The cursor has been reshaped for easier text editing.
  • List menu force close issue has been resolved.
  • Issues have been fixed involving proper connectivity through
    the HDMI cable.
  • Data now works correctly when toggling in Airplane mode

If you haven’t updated your device yet, simply go to Menu Key > Settings > About phone > System updates > Check New and follow the instructions. After letting the LG Revolutions do its thing, you should be ready to go. Don’t forget to hit the comments to let us know how this update is treating you.

    That leaves the Droid Charge as the last among the Verizon LTE phones that doesn’t have Gingerbread. Pretty ridiculous situation if you ask me. One of the best reasons to buy the Galaxy Nexus.

      1. ICS isn’t even out yet, therefore it ISN’T the “operating system now”. Come back in few weeks then, say that to me. Your sense of time is incredibly off.
      2. “…what version does it have 2.3.3″ Actually no, it has 2.3.4. Talk about making crap up off the top of your head.
      3. “…the highest version out to date as far as gingerbread which should be 2.3.5.” Wrong again Dick. If you took the minute it would take to do a simple Google search on your “legendary” Evo 3D, you’d find the latest Gingerbread version is 2.3.6. Try checking your “facts” before saying such ridiculous crap.
      4. What you’re apparently failing to realize is that it takes time, effort, developers, and money to make a working Android OS, and make sure it works well. I’d LOVE to see you port an OS update by yourself and see what your response is then. I can guarantee you won’t be talking as if you’re the big man on campus. Go back to school Dick. You don’t know how the “real world” works.

      You fail to realize (again) that there’s a little something called “root”. Root allows us to get rid of all the Verizon/Sprint/T-Mobile/AT&T bloatware that is put on our phones and do more than the carrier limits us to. But you wouldn’t even think of that, would you? Oh that’s right, you’re the Dick who thinks rooting is for “2 plus year old devices”. What a joke.

          1. You drill me? What planet are you from? I’ve been schooling your sorry ass because you make wild guesses about me that you have no hope of getting right. Not to mention that you have absolutely no knowledge of the stuff you speak of. I mean, you again practically stated above that rooting is for “2 plus year old devices”, when that simply isn’t so. Your Evo 3D has a HUGE root community behind it. The Nexus S STILL has a big root community. Face it little girl, you have no clue what you’re talking about. Now you’re just pulling shit out of your ass (pun intended) to make yourself seem smart, but in reality (aka “the real world”) you’re just bringing yourself down more. Keep trying though, I laugh at your pitiful attempts to be “intelligent”.
