I never found any supporting evidence that there was a early release/soak, just a few defensive members of a certain dev forum that were not very interested in answering questions about ZVB
Originaly a download zip appeared there, then the OP's post was deleted
Other senior/RC members chimed in that "they saw" or "heard about" someone receiving the update OTA but offered no real proof and as I mentioned before became very defensive about the subject
Truth is the ZVB version had several issues, if it was the update or the way users installed it remains to be seen
I'm just glad the official OTA is here, now I'm just waiting for the notification that it's ready to install
Oh goodness I'm so excited.
I got this phone because the awesome quadcore processor and 2GB RAM. Along with the LCD HD display and 13MP camera.
Truely a hard decision between the S3 (but I am glad I got this cause this phone can run circles around the S3 in a benchmark test) but my one issue was the fact it was still on Icecream Sandwich. But with the fact that I have no doubt the phone's hardware can definitely handle up to what is rumored about KeyLime Pie (btw if anyone finds anything out about the release of KLP please post...I've been looking all around the internet for info)
BUT ANYWAY BACK TO THE SUBJECT... I'm just very glad that I'm not having to wait long after getting the phone initially I can get the update to Jellybean. It was rumored all around the internet about it being released but with the fact that no one was saying specifics of what is going to happen and there was nothing officially from Sprint itself that the update was coming, I worried it was just simply that...rumors. But now I know for sure.
Given that Android OS upgrades on some phones sometimes introduce bugs, and that the upgrade process sometimes runs into problem, I'd personally rather wait a few days and let a few hundred thousand OTHER people be the guinea pigs.
This is the first LG smartphone I've owned, but I've had two HTC phones previous to this, and each time the Android updates introduced more problems and lag than they solved.
So yes, personally, I'm happy to wait and see how the upgrade works on other people's phones first.
thers no major bugs with the update. if you are that worried about it dont upgrade. otherwise look on xda for posts on there. but as slow as the OTA is rolling out you have time to watch. my wife and i both have the G. hers still hasnt got the OTA. ive been running its since it popped up and have had no problems
