Thanks! Found it and got it working. Just waiting for the update now.

Some people have called Verizon and they can't force the update to your phone, so don't bother with that.

Thanks for the info, guess the update hasn't been pushed to my phone yet.

I have been on stock for a week now, and its been horrible. I forgot how slow this was before devs streamlined the system, and how many rooted apps/functions I used.

I am going back to revolt today. I will see GB when the .TOT is available.

I noticed I still have SuperUser installed, so I tried unrooting with SuperOneClick, but SuperOneClick is stuck on "Waiting for Device". I have also tried to reset to factory settings, with the same result. Does anyone know how to fix this? Thanks.

Were you attempting to update to gingerbread by using the TOT? Or was there an update available though your service provider?

If you were getting a failure through the network, it's likely because you haven't gone back to stock recovery and still have ClockWorkMod Recovery installed. Use DevToolKit to fix this.

If you are using the TOT and getting a failure, do a checksum on the TOT file.

I've been working on this actively as I have a revolution. LG has informed me the update push completed on November 2. Nobody at VZW or LG can tell me why some Revolutions haven't gotten the push.

VZW Engineering has apparently been alerted, but LG has been unresponsive to me to-date.

I'm not waiting and putting together a one-package manual update kit, but I do want to give LG and VZW time to give me an update. Thing is, it's been over 72 hours now and there hasn't been one, so my patience is wearing thin.

It's disappointing that LG hasn't responded to any of my inquiries... I'm asking the right people behind the scenes.

I'm in Rochester NY and never got one. I gave it til 2 days ago and threw on the TOT.

Yeah, I'm leaning towards drafting an idiot-proof TOT guide, it's just going to be really upsetting if I have to do that. If this was Apple, and not LG, we wouldn't even have this thread right now.

Option-click .ipk and done... not that Apple would even let ~1-5% of a device "miss" an update.

So, I've confirmed a few things with LG officially:

1) The ZV7 update has not been pulled.
2) LG was not aware of this issue until I reported it.
3) LG is just now starting the process of investigating.

I can't flash a TOT on mine right now, as LG may want to capture my unit for evaluation. I'll know more soon, hopefully by Monday.

Verizon was trying to push an update on me back on the 11th. It was the V6 update, as I was running V4. It failed, and I manually ran the tot through with LGNPST. Since thecubed had posted the V7 tot as well, I ran that through as well.

I probably did not need to go from V4 to V6 to get to V7, but I figured it wouldn't hurt.

But as I said, the only push I had received was on the 11th, well after the 2nd.
As a semi-newbie, it was easier to push the tot on than anything else.

LG Engineering is at least listening... they have agreed to capture my unit and send me a brand new Revolution simultaneously.
