LG Revolution Gingerbread Update Actually is Ready to Go, Here is the Change Log

The LG forum let it slip last night that the Gingerbread (Android 2.3) update for the Revolution could start today. Without a change log though, we were a little hesitant to jump on board with that. Well, good news this morning, as the list of changes has been uploaded and published by Verizon. It’s 87.8MB in size and should be on everyone’s phones by 11/2.

Be sure to let us know if you receive it! And I guess that leaves the Charge on Froyo? You go Samsung!

More info.

    I have the update to 2.3.4, rooted, and CWM (a little flakey since update, worked great on 2.2.2, just needs a tweak). So far everything is looking great. Great phone!

    • what do you have rooted the lg revolution with the 2.3.4 update

      • Jwitt888

        LG Esteem root works. Gingervolt 1.0 rom is running excellent with an awesome boot animation 😉

    • Coveman

      Do you have the Lg Revolution with the 2.3.4 update rooted?  If so please do tell how!

  • Dmzman

    Wonderful!  Now we Samsung Droid Charge owners are the ONLY ones left out in the cold on Froyo 2.2   And the Droid Charge came out MONTHS before the Revolution.  Thanks Verizon!!

    : Forreal – not that I care that much since I’ll being seeing the GNex as soon as it’s out, but my Charge (and other owners) should be updated! Could it be possible to go from 2.2 to 4.0? Completely skipping 2.3? (just a thought) lol

    I’m trading in this constantly-crashing phone for a Galaxy Nexus in a few weeks, but that doesn’t mean that I’m not excited to see this update come through. Maybe LGs amateur-looking skin will have some sort of improvement as well. Not that I use their launcher of course…

    Any word on how to root the new update.  I am assuming it will break root.

    And it also leaves my incredible without gingerbread!

      This is Droid Life, not Android Central…

  • Clay921

    That really pisses me off that I own a Charge  and this is getting official Gingerbread before my Charge….Good thing I’m running a leaked 2.3.4 with DarkCharge …

    • sog805

      agree…both the revolution and thunderbolt now have GB

      • Speedracex

        My friend just got the GB update for the revolution

      Which phone was out first the Revolution or the Charge?

      • Dmzman

        The Charge, by about 2 months!

  • GotSka81

    And that is exactly why Samsung has clinged to Google for the Nexus phones…they don’t have to do any updates.

    Now if only the bing were removed, i’d be impressed

  • You go Samsung?
    Are you referring to them selling more phones then apple, a typo, or a pun because the have no gingerbread on the charge?

    Edit: Never mind did not read the droid charge in the bit before, my bad

  • people bought this?

    • Only people who don’t know anything about smartphones.

        Huh?  It’s essentially the same phone as the Thunderbolt internally.

        • Fattie McDoogles

          You and Michael Jordan have all the same parts… You got 6 NBA titles?

          The Thunderbolt has 768mb ram. The LG has 512mb ram with a dedicate gpu.

        I don’t own the phone or know anything about it… but it doesn’t look bad.  What’s the problem with it?  Is the bootloader locked?  If not, then it has more potential than a Motorola phone.

        • Fattie McDoogles

          Its a very poorly put together phone. First its a brick and feels like one in your hand. Its not contoured well. The software is very slow and sluggish. Also as much as Samsung phones look like iPhones is as much as LG phones look like Samsung.
