The type of inquiry: Software / Hardware updates
Product / Model Number. : WCDMA/GT505

Hello LG Mobile Indonesia,

I as a user of LG Mobile type GT540 intend to ask about the continuity of support from LG for HP GT540 type this.

Is LG Mobile will support firmware / OS android is up to version 2.2 / Froyo?
Due to HP's other brands that my level with the GT540 also will be upgraded to version 2.2/Froyo. I represent HP LG GT540 users are expecting the LG did not stop just at the firmware 2.1 only.

Please visit this web site http://www.petitiononline.com/r47boyz/petition.html which contains a petition from LG GT540 users who expect the same as me.


Greeting

Ronnie T

Interesting! But I think we will get a froyo udate (from the Russians) before we get one from LG. Either way I would love froyo in my GT540!

Unfortunately I e-mailed LG mobile UK and received and reply telling me they won't be updating, citing some rubbish about hardware capabilities, which I know is bull as HTC Wildfire runs 2.2 fine. Anyway I'll post the full reply later on a computer seeing as I find the copy and paste on this un-useable.

Actually, you are wrong.
There are big differences in hardware between HTC Wildfire and GT540 in favor to Wildfire.

HTC Wildfire has 512 MB ROM
GT540 has only 256 MB ROM

This is why they can't instal Froyo on GT540, there is simply no room for that.
The whole operating system has to be installed completely in ROM (it's like phone's "hard drive") and Froyo simply won't fit in these 256 MB.

OK then my mistake, though everyone else will continue to argue with you regardless.

Dear Eoin Sheehy,

Thank you for your e-mail.

Unfortunately the GT540 handset will not be updating further past the Android 2.1 Eclair update in the forseeable future. This is due to the hardware restrictions causing the handset being unable to process the Android 2.2 update efficiently. We apologise for any inconvenience caused.

We hope this information has been useful to you, if you have any further queries please feel free to contact us again via e-mail or our customer support line listed below.

Best Regards,

LG Electronics UK Helpdesk

Flash is not possible on our GT540! Even with 2.2 it's not possible, because our CPU doesn't support flash
