    Is there a way to remove the update once successfully installed? I have been getting errors whne attempting to run Apps: NFS Shift won’t open at all, a couple of other apps run but very slowly.

    • No , but i am surprised that you are getting errors in official updates. restore factory default your phone and now it will run smoothly on Gingerbread

      First, try this:

      Go to Settings>Privacy>Factory data reset>Reset phone
      Enter your password if required

      OR try this if above is not working

      Turn the power off.pull the battery out and reinsert it
      Hold the Volume Down key while holding volume down press and hold power on key until the device turns on
      now a menu appears
      Select Clear Storage by pressing the Volume Down button
      Press and release the Power button
      choose: Volume Up for YES and Volume Down for NO

      • I no longer can boot into recovery. It just gives you the open box and android. and then starts up like when it was new. no options what so ever. I can not use NVflash either. I would rather stay with a rooted froyo than have this update with its bloat.

  2. Everything went kinda smooth up until when it started to update. It got to 4% then became unresponsive twice then it says i need to contact Lg and my phone is stuck on the screen that says download in progress. I’ve tried everything from taking the battery out, holding down the volume down and power button, and reconnecting it but it always goes back to the same screen saying there is a download in progress FML -_________- please help immediately!!

  3. What if you have a Mac?

    • Turn the power off. If your LG G2x

      Hold the Volume Down button+Power button until the device turns on

      Select Clear Storage by pressing the Volume Down button
      Press and release the Power button
