Thanks for the reply. I also use EasyBackup Pro, but it also has some problems getting a full backup of the Apps to my Cloud. The SMS/MMS backup is flawless on EasyBackup! That's my preferred for those.

EDIT: Oops, I just saw my mistake. EASEbackup, not EASYbackup. I'll take a look at that one now.

Could this patch be ported to any other (T-mobile) variant?

This would require quite a bit of work. The update contains a dlpkgfile which nobody has figured out how to decompress. It's not a normal zip, bzip, gzip, lzip, lhzip, or anything I can decompress. Looking through the file's data it's obvious that it's compressed using opensource code, but LG must have put their own "spin" on it.

About the only thing I can think of doing to extract the changes would be to do a fresh factory reset, go through all the updates and take a snapshot of the /system partition prior to this small update, do the update, and then take another snapshot after the update. Using some file comparison tools such as Meld in Linux I can compare the before/after to capture the differences. Totally possible to do, just very time consuming. Here's the rough steps if someone wants to do it themselves...

1. revert back to D80010d (LGFlashtool)
2. use OTA process to upgrade to 80020c
3. root using IOroot25
4. take a snapshot of /system partition using "dd"
5. use OTA process to upgrade to 80020k
6. take a second snapshot of /system partition using "dd"
7. mount snapshots on Linux desktop
8. compare mounted snapshots using Meld

This will only capture differences on the /system partition. If there are updates to other partitions then those partitions would also have to extracted and compared as well.
