The LG V35 is the one that is different that need their own forum! V30S is just another V30, but with more RAM.
Are the V30S and V30 (and V30+, and...) stock ROMs the same? In the V30 forum, for the latest 20E update, you wrote:
NOTE: This is for all V30/V30+ US998 -- open market US998 V30/V30+ as well as U.S Cellular US998 V30/V30+.
"V30s" is not in the list. Is that because it's not compatible... or because LG has mucked up the model numbers so much that it's hard to keep straight and it was accidentally omitted? lol
I thought the V30S has Google Lens and more AI options in the camera and voice controls, hence the ThinQ in the model name. Like the G7 has. If all this is true... Does that mean I could flash the V30S stock ROM to my V30 (US998, 64GB, 4GB) and get those extra features?! Or, am I wrong, and the stock V30S ROM is the same as my stock V30 ROM? Where can I even get the V30S stock ROM? It's not in the V30 forum, nor is it here.
I know that LG has cast off the shackles of the traditional release cycle, and is releasing much more iterative updates more frequently... so... at what point does the hardware diverge enough to prevent cross-flashing the stock ROMs among versions?
Thanks for the help. I've been happily humming along with my US998 on 20B lately, and just recently played with a G7 and Google Lens in the camera. Now I'm digging a little and getting confused.
