What's changing?

You can grab the update now by heading into the settings menu and hitting About phone > Software Update > Update now. That should pretty much do it.

LG Announcing New Device May 30 – Could This Be The Optimus G2?

As is the custom these days, another Android OEM has teased a phone with an event invitation. A year ago it wouldn't have been very interesting to speculate on what LG was up to, but the OEM has been returned to prominence after building the last Nexus device and delivering a competent flagship phone of its own in the Optimus G. This invitation summons press to an event in Macau, China at the end of the month, and it might be the Optimus G2.

The tagline on the invitation is “ImaGination Begins,” so we're definitely looking at an announcement in the G family of devices.

CyanogenMod 10.1 Finally Comes To The International LG Optimus G, Starting With Nightly Builds

Good news, everyone! ...or at least, everyone with an international LG Optimus G and an inclination to try out custom ROM builds. The ubiquitous CyanogenMod ROM is now available for LG's flagship, beginning with nightly CM 10.1 (Android 4.2) builds. CyanogenMod developer Ricardo Cerqueira broke the news on his Google+ account, noting that the new builds are possible thanks to the FreeGee tool expanding to the international (E975) model.

As always, you'll need a custom recovery to apply the ROM, and ClockworkMod has also been ported from to the international Optimus G model. Nightly builds tend to be a little less stable as a general rule, but since the Optimus G already has a pretty healthy development community for other versions (not to mention a certain Nexus-flavored cousin) they should be relatively complete.

When it comes down to pure hardware (and even the basic design), the Optimus G is essentially a non-stock-Android Nexus 4. If that means nothing else to you, it should translate into one thing: the guts are pretty awesome, and if you get the chance to throw stock Android on it, the experience is fantastic.
