    if you like to use custom roms, youll want to stay away from this until the devs make the new baseband that is included with this update play nice with thier respective roms

    Has anyone installed this update yet? If so, did it take away the free wifi tethering capability?

    Got my update today from T-Mo. I just got about 5 programs give an error message that the updates failed due to lack of space. I have 400 MB free on my phone and 3.8 GB free on my SD card.

    "Connection failed caused by authentication error."

    Good luck with that. I had that error since day freaking one and no one, neither Tmo or lg could figure out how to fix it. So I held on to this device for 11 months with that error and was never able to dl any updates ota. Once I heard that this update was only going to be ota I knew I was sol...so I decide to just junk the phone and get a gnex. I am soo glad I will never have to deal with the g2x, or lg for that matter, ever again. Good riddance. After getting my gnex I keep wondering why i put up with the g2x for so long. Lg no more.

    LG had nothing to do with the OTA update being pushed by T-Mobile. It is now available with the LG Updated tool as of Today.

    I just updated through the LG tool and had no problems. To the person that asked, the wifi tethering is still there and free. I actually don't see any changes so far.

    edit: The video camera is useful again!!! It's not the LG camera app, but it has options again.

    I also updated via the LG tool. Didn't get the OTA. Everything seems OK so far. I am getting GPS locks a lot quicker now, less than 5 seconds. In the past, it would take up to 5 minutes. That in itself was worth the update. We will see if it improves battery life and random reboots.

    So how are folks doing with this update? I picked up one on eBay (should arrive tomorrow) as a relatively cheap phone to get me through the rest of my contract, specifically because it just got updated. Cheapest dual-core T-mo compatible phone on eBay. I know it'd been problematic in the past, even with the first GB update.

    Well I've had the phone 24 hours. Used the GPS for around 90 minutes for turn-by-turn directions, made calls, etc. Never used it with anything but v21y and it's been great.

    I have a feeling that when I installed I also got a silent install that fixes everyone's popping audio issue. If you're on v21y and audio is still bad, check this out:
