LG Revolution Gingerbread update changelog posted by VerizonAlex Wagner - Editorial Director of News and Content
Looks like it's about time to admit the LG Revolution to Club Gingerbread. Verizon just posted the changelog for an update to the Revolution that's carrying the build number VS910ZV7 and weighs in at 87.8MB. What can Rev owners expect to find after installing the update? Besides Android 2.3 and all of the goodies it brings, the new software's packing a bevy of bug fixes, including a reshaped cursor for easier text editing and a solution for the list menu force close issue that some users may have encountered. You can find the full changelog below.
Many owners of the LG Revolution have likely been hammering away at their "System updates" button ever since the LG Esteem (nearly identical to the Rev) for MetroPCS was announced with Android 2.3 preinstalled, but it looks like hitting that update key on the Revolution is finally about to bear some fruit dessert. We haven't heard official word from Verizon on the update's rollout, but a moderator on the official LG forums has said that the new software should start rolling out today and that all devices should have it by November 2nd, so you Revolution folk may want to go to Menu > Settings > About phone > System updates > Check New to try and manually pull some Gingerbread from the sky.
