So, there's this phone on AT&T called the LG Thrill 4G.  While it's virtually identical to the Optimus 3D in nearly every way, it has been running Android 2.2 since release, whereas its twin brother has been on Android 2.3 for four months now. Finally, though, Thrill 4G owners are getting treated to a taste of Gingerbread, albeit with one last hurdle to jump through.

Instead of rolling the update OTA (over-the-air), this one requires the LG Mobile Support tool. Still, it should be easy enough to grab the update, as it's appears to be a simple plug-click-install method.

So, Thrill 4G owners, hit the link, take the plunge, and let us know how it all works out for you.

    The update never happened. I even called LG to confirm. Check your facts.

    The update is available, I don't know who you talked to at LG but they obviously have no clue.

    See this thread, people updated already.

    If this was a Samsung or HTC people would be OUTRAGED. This seemed to go quietly.

    I attempted to do the update yesterday using the LG tool and it did not work. after running the tool selecting my carrier and phone the tool started fine but then it gives me a notice this phone not eligible for upgrade. Go figure. I contacted LG support only to be told by them the update would be only available over the air and that AT&T would send out a message to users shortly. Go figure LG and AT&T not communicating.
