LG-Revolution-Verizon

Verizon just posted up some software update documents for the LG Revolution, one of the aging first-gen LTE handsets that debuted on the network way back in 2011. The software version is VS910ZVB, as opposed to the build that rolled out a year ago  - VS910ZV9.

The new build includes some OS security fixes, removes quite a few pieces of bloatware, and updates Google Maps Services. Given the removal of bloat and patching of holes, this may well be the last update the Revolution ever sees. I'm sort of surprised it got this far. You can expect the update to roll out to what few Revolutions remain on stock software over the next few weeks.

      I wouldn't keep your hopes up. This definite looks like a final update - removes old services, fixes security issues.

          ZV9 was the last update - I missed that one. It goes ZV8 -> ZV9 -> ZVB.

    My phone will download the update but it won't install.. What I've really learned today though is that I'm now 3 updates behind. Odd. I don't k ow why my phone won't take updates, but it barely runs much past Falcon Pro, so I'll take anything.

    Got the update today and still have Blockbuster. I wish they would remove the News, Weather and Today+ widget. They are unwanted services that consume what little memory I have left.
