    May now? IIRC its what two months to the time they said it would be out? Why don't they update our phones for the better user experience? All I've gotten so far is the loss of Z4 and my hotspot. Thanks a lot, LG.

    The only positive I can see now with an official update would be a more purified GB rom without any of the CM modifications. I personally use aospCMod because I like aosp's work. He used CM as a base and has since been removing some of the CM stuff, working toward a vanilla build. Once an official update happens he will be all over it making it very slim, stable, and fast.

    The one big benefit I can see in an official update would be the ability to regain access to sub-menus tailored specifically for our phone.

    For example, I use the "Force Roam" trick included with nROM on a semi-frequent basis (poor Sprint reception in my apartment), and there is no hidden LG menu with Scott Pilgrim or AOSP since those aren't official builds. Basing a ROM off of the official release would allow us to get back that access that's limited to ROM's and builds of 2.2 only right now.

    There is probably one guy stuck in a small cubicle somewhere over at LG hammering out the update (over-exaggerated) but the update will come. It seems like nothing is released on time these days.

    Maybe that wasn't over exaggerated. The only person I ever see making edits to the build.prop, init.rc, etc. is a Shino Lee or something like that :O

    That and everything would hopefully work, (like bluetooth).

    Working Bluetooth would be nice.

    Bluetooth doesnt matter to me, I never use it... so there really isnt a point in me worry about the bluetooth...

    However, I was trying to wait for the stock GB to come OTA but... I gave up and flashed it with CM7 GB... either way, if it comes up stock, i may go back to a stock rom, but i'm unsure as of this moment

    If you are rooted, do not flash anything OTA even Gingerbread. It will remove remove your root and there's nothing worse than walking around rootless!

    I know back on Dec 11, 2010, a lot of forums, android sites, and the works were guessing the optimus would have gingerbread by march.... but i've seen speculation that its coming in may, i dont remember where...

    The last i read, can not remember where, but GB was to be released towards the end of may. Me personally do not care, because i am just waiting for someone to make a simple one click (like Z4) root. but with all these updates I am going to be waiting awhile. I am not techy enough to do the adb shell thingy.

    I concur 100%. Our (as in the one Zefie is developing) CM7 port is pretty darn good IMO.

    Yup, I don't really care about the update to Gingerbread, because Custom ROMS are so much better. Also CM7 will always be better than stock Gingerbread anyway.

    My mother has a Master's in English and she says the correct plural would in fact be Optimii and not Optimus' lol

    hence why I said I have two Optimii and not two Optimus' or Optimuses...

    its like Prius, whose plural is Prii....

    I'd rather have 2.2.2 customized rom - that can still be rooted with a Gingerbread theme

    No plans to update to LG's Gingerbread unless I see other suckers aka Test Subjects - loading it first.

    plural, us always turns to a double ii.... but why are we correcting the spelling of that anyway?

    I'll test it when it comes out on Optimus #2 (i dont use it very often, running stock 2.2.1 with VD)

    I briefly had a Nexus S with 2.3. I saw very little difference between 2.2 and 2.3. Not enough for me to worry about.

    Still wont hurt to try it out on the Optimus once it pops out.... I'll let you guys know what I think after it hits...
