Sprint has shared a small update rolling out to the LG Optimus G, but right from the beginning, let's temper those expectations. Version LS970ZVC doesn't do much - actually, there's nothing here really worth mentioning. A few bugs related to creating an email account and managing calendar events have been fixed, and that's about it.


This is the first update Sprint's rolled out to the device since the big leap to Android 4.1.2 back in March. Compared to that, this might feel like quite the letdown. Nevertheless, updates are updates, and a small update is better than none. Just don't think of this as one to run out and try to get your hands on immediately. Accept it when the notification pops up and carry on with your day.

    Will the change off access channel help with my slow text sending or any other text related bugs?

    And this is why I don't buy LG devices. I have a phone that came out a year ago on ICS (I won it) and it seriously has received 1, 1!! update, which was a bug fix.

    Well, this update fixed that annoying bug where small SMS didnt send, which is fine by me.

    i wonder if this will also fix the google play music bug

    Ever since i downloaxed the update, my speakerphone volume is stuck on high. It shows that u are lowering the volume, but the volume is stuck on the highest level. Thanks Sprint and LG... this phone sucks!

    I live in the upstate area, and 4G has recently been enabled. I was on 3G since I got my phone back in February (2013), but sometime after I installed this update, which was a few days ago, I noticed the 4G icon. The cut-over may have been last night around midnight, at which time I could no longer send or receive texts until I rebooted.

    YEP, I uninstalled Google Play movies, books and mags. When I re-booted, my phone was bricked, coming up with a "SECURITY ERROR". Took it to Sprint store, they said they couldn't fix it because I rooted it. Brought it home and with the right program and image file, fixed it with this update. Connections with this version are HORRIBLE. Do NOT install the update if you haven't already. I'm going to see if I can find the original rom that came with my phone, which is the LS970ZVB version.
