LG Revolution on Verizon Now Receiving Gingerbread
While LG sets the fate of which of its Androids will be on-track for receiving Ice Cream Sandwich updates, it has models still waiting for a taste of Gingerbread. The next to finally make the step to Android 2.3 is the LG Revolution on Verizon, which should start receiving its update today.
Beyond the normal Gingerbread stuff, LG’s got a few device-specific improvements and bugfixes. If you were having trouble getting a picture over its HDMI-out, this new software addresses some problems with the port. Turning on and off different connectivity options should now function properly when using Airplane mode, and a menu-related crash situation has been fixed.
You should also look for several changes to messaging and email, like gaining the ability to save texts to your LTE SIM. With email, attachments should now properly indicate their size, folders will now be in the correct order, and you’ll be able to set an out-of-office status without needing to specify a time period.
System software VS910VZ7 is just shy of a 90MB download. It should start showing up today, with plans to complete the update process for all users by mid-next-week.
