Default So no Google Maps 7 for our phone?

Even the mid-range Samsung phones such as Galaxy Ace 2 officially supports Google Maps 7 from Google Play. The LG-P880 seems to stuck at Google Maps 6.14 forever....

I'm using Maps 7.7 on my p880 with CM11 Nightly.... You mean on LG's stock ROM perhaps?

Yes, I am on stocked LG JB 4.1.2 ROM. I am not into custom ROM yet. Galaxy ACE 2 with stocked JB 4.1.2 ROM gets Google Map 7.x updates. Hence I don't understand why can't mine get the updates, too.

V7 can be manually installed on stock, but it has bugs with flickery screen for some reason
To install custom roms on O4x:

1. upgrade to jb
2. root
3. unlock bootloader
4. flash custom recovery (cwm)
5. flash roms
6. if you encounter any issues, search, they've been answered already.

Got issues with RIL/IMEI/BASEBAND on custom 4.2, 4.3 or 4.4 ROMs on p880? Click me for possible solution!
