Hey There,

Ive been recently trying to update my p500 to the 2.3 upgrade that was made available last year but every time i run the lg mobile support tool i get the error "The Cell phone is the latest version already. So you don't need to update." It also tells me my version is V10B.

I anyone knows any reason this would be happening or solution to this help would be greatly appreciated.

Cheers

Um.... kinda to the obvious question sorry, but are you sure your phone isn't running the latest firmware version already?...

Mine shows V20c for 2.3.3. To OP, sorry can't remember if there were any special tricks to upgrading... I don't recall any so I don't think so.

Im running 2.2 at the moment. It should just be a simple plug in press a button then update is what every site says but its not co-operating.

What branding does your phone have? Are you sure 2.3 was released for that particular model?

Mine's a Telecom one with 2.3.3 v20e.

I tried updating it with the LG PC utility but it trashed it. Took it back to Telecom and they got it updated to the above version under warranty.

Try Cyanogenmod instead. CM 7.2 (Android 2.3.7) is very stable, not sure about the later versions. http://www.cyanogenmod.org/devices/lg-optimus-one

This is a good install guide:
