The ONE, the ONLY LG Viper Ice Cream Sandwich Thread

After waiting all summer and only having the ZVD update for the Viper, which added the QuickMemo feature, it appears that LG is really testing ICS 4.0.4.

So far there have been 3 builds, all of them have been 4.0.4. Not sure why they haven't released a complete version yet, but hopefully soon. The Viper had lots of potential for a mid-range device, but the neglect from LG has really done great damage.

Just a theory:

Builds E and F were internal LG test builds builds G and H were the builds that failed certification on Sprint’s end.

Build I could be the winner.

I just completely made all of that up. Hopefully you get some ICS soon.

In other related news, the LG Lucid, Verizon's version of the 840, is getting ICS starting Friday. Maybe that means the Viper will soon get it's official ICS upgrade!

According to new rumors on the Android Central forums, it's very likely possible the Viper ICS update could begin to be pushed to user devices starting tomorrow. I will keep everyone posted, and even try to write up a review once it hits.

Over at Android Central one of the members posted a conversation with a Sprint Rep. Hopefully it's a legit conversation. They gave this individual a date of November 20th.

 

Here is a direct link to the post.

I know some are hesitant on LG products b/c of their poor OS upgrade history, at least that's what I seem to see while reading comments in the LG Optimus G threads (which is available for pre-order at Sprint now, btw). But, I cant help but wonder if LG's new relationship with Google/Nexus will give them a boost with future OS upgrade performance across all their phone models.

That would be nice. At least it's come instead of at the last minute Sprint and LG saying that they won't release it.

Naaa, that's something Motorola would do! ;) (Think back to the Photon)

Nope. No luck yet. Appears to be totally random. :(

Have you tried the menu-settings-apps-all apps-Google services framework - clear data - force stop-

Then trying to check for updates?

Yep. Like 15-20 times today.

 

There is a way to do it manually now.

 

For those that don't want to wait, there is a way to do this. Check out this post at Android Central.

I'm tethering from my phone because I have no home internet anymore in Pahrump. This will take quite a while to complete.

I could download it, burn it to a disk, and then mail it to you faster than downloading it over Sprint 3g...

Haha. Nice try. I'm already at 28%. Current download speed is about as fast as my fastest dialup speeds, 30k, but it peaks at around 75k at times. I have about an hour and a half to go.

Not far. I run/walk that much every day. ;)

Get to stepping!

He would never make it that far on veggie power. Although I'd never make it that far on fried chicken power, either.

    • Some more interesting articles on Dish: https://www.fiercewireless.com/5g/dish-wireless-bakes-core-principles-infrastructure-chua https://www.fiercewireless.com/tech/dish-eyes-5g-network-reliability-vericas-chaos-engineering-platform    
    • Financially makes sense, but may put them far behind T-Mobile and Verizon 5g marketing.  Could put them up against Dish if Dish gets their act together and starts their public network in Las Vegas in late February.
    • Fiercewireless put out an article today.  Sounds like AT&T wont get heavily started until later this year when equipment will be more available that supports both 3.45GHz and C-Band.
    • They are using DSS on B5 here, on one carrier. LTE-only on the other AFAIK. I kinda hope AT&T doesn't turn DSS on in markets where dropping H+ bumps them from 5x5 for everything else to 10x10. They have 10x10 of B14 and 5x5-10x10 of B12 to throw users on, and with the delays to their C-Band deployment due to waiting for gear their network is effectively LTE-only in many areas despite an increasing proportion of 5G phones. The network was doing just fine without the extra B5 bandwidth, so not a whole lot of reason to basically go backwards when they said they're dropping 3G to expand 5G.
