View Full Version : Verizon LG Ally prompted for software upgrades

01-19-2011, 05:03 PM
Hello All,

I bought a new Ally off of Ebay and it works great and registering it with Verizon took only minutes. My question is can someone tell me what the lastest firmware revision is or the current sw version.

It has now prompted me 4 times since last Saturday to perform an upgrade.

After this last update I appear to have gone from SW Version VS740ZVC where before it was VS740ZVB.

Firmware is showing to be 2.1-update 1.

thanks, Jim

VS740ZVC is the latest version. In a few days all Allys should be updated to Android 2.2.

thank you. It finally updated to VS740ZVC so hopefully that will be it for a bit until 2.2

I live in Rochester, NY. I woke up in the middle of the night and tried an OTA update, thinking that it would be more likely at a low traffic time. Bingo! When I checked for a software update, I got a message that FroYo was downloading, although it took several minutes for the actual download to begin.

Everything went very smoothly---no problems whatsoever. After the install, all apps are working normally. I was able to move a lot of my apps to SD, freeing up space on the phone. The phone also seems zippier. This update adds significantly to the functionality and value of the Ally.

Got the update today!! So far so good. The only thing I was looking forward to was being able to put my apps on my SD card.

What is the SMS bug?
MY wife upgraded her phone and now her texts take forever to send. and she doesnt recieve them timely either. For her the update is terrible.
