OK next question - I reverted back to stock on downloaded the OTA. When I reboot to install it immediately boots up CWM - do I "apply update from sdcard"?

Stock is a nandroid backup. You'll need to unrar it and then put it in the correct folder on the sdcard. Last, choose backup and restore and then restore this folder...

Is there a link to exactly what I need to do, kind of lost. I may just update it manually via LG tool. Was trying to keep it easy.

also has a video on how to do the whole process. http://forum.xda-developers.com/show....php?t=1048274 is the actual ROM to restore.

I was under the impression I did not need to unroot to update, just flash stock.

I'm not sure, I just thought I would go clean to get the update.

Bionix had the check for update thingy removed, so I downloaded xboarders old stock 2.33 checked for update. Nothing. Says up to date.

You need to use the LG_KDZ_FW-Update_OfflineFix (OFFLINE INSTALLER DOWNLOAD)

Go back to the original install and follow the post on how to use it. There's an msxml thing to install, you run the VBS script which injects a line into your hosts file, etc...

I've been running stock for about a week waiting for the update. I can't flash the KDZ file using Windows 7, XP through Virtual Box on my Windows 7 machine or my Linux box. The update starts and stalls out every time. I've been doing the Software update check and checking LG's update tool religiously and I still get the "Current version is the latest version" message. This is frustrating because I use my GPS quite a bit and it sucks with CM and stock ROMs. I'm hoping this OTA fixes the GPS issues for me or I will have to switch phones.

I think there's a pretty good chance that you'll be happy with the GPS performance under V21y. I've seen a number of reports that it's better. My own experience is that it's better but not perfect. I have gotten a number of 15-second fixes, which happened only extremely rarely under other ROMs. However, it does occasionally take 2-3 minutes, which is just what I was seeing before I installed V21y.
