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.

    • Sounds like an awesome project—keep us posted on how it’s going! Also—if you’re able to figure out logging, I can work with you to get the data uploaded to SignalCheck. 
    • Yesterday, I saw a post on Facebook from an old friend about the Evolve III Maestro, a $60 laptop (at Micro Center) that apparently has an LTE modem in it.  Specifically, the Quectel EC25-AF*.  The nearest Micro Center was sold out of new ones, but offered open box at $48.  So for $51 after tax, I walked out this morning with one.  An absolute steal. I backed up the Windows product key and then put Kubuntu 22.04 on it.  I spent a lot of time today trying to get the build tools installed so I could get the wifi module installed and running, and once I did that, I pretty quickly got to sending it modem commands, which I've never done before.  I don't have a SIM in it yet, but it does seem to function as it should.  (I figured out the command to get Timing Advance values out of it, but without a SIM, I doubt it would have such values.) Now I'm trying to puzzle out how to write some kind of script or small program to use it for logging purposes.  I think I've worked out how to send commands to it from bash using socat, but I need to pick specific commands to run.  I'd actually like to replace some of my phones with this if I can get it to record cells, with GPS, and cycle through a set of bands repeatedly.  My current phone collection consists of 9 phones other than my main S21FE, and they require babysitting while I'm logging.  It'd be nice to pare that down to a more reasonable number and let the computer do the work, hopefully in the back seat with less babysitting. - Trip ===== * Per the spec sheet, it supports B2/4/5/12/13/14/66/71.  That'd cover all of Verizon and US Cellular LTE, all but B29/30 on AT&T, and all but B41 and Sprint Keep on B26 for T-Mobile. 
    • More bizarre.  I just updated my other Ace without issue. - Trip  
    • Looking over the data so far, bidders can go back and reopen bidding on licenses that appeared settled. In the list below, not all counties are listed and only states with excess demand.  Typically 3 licenses per county for rural areas and some urban areas. Here is how many licenses per state had demand greater than supply: State count AK 3 AL 14 AR 3 AS 6 AZ 9 CA 12 CO 76 DE 6 FL 10 GA 66 GU 3 HI 3 IA 99 ID 47 IL 39 IN 43 KS 231 KY 23 LA 14 MA 5 MD 16 ME 1 MI 86 MN 9 MO 79 MP 12 MS 73 MT 69 NC 26 ND 109 NE 18 NH 13 NJ 6 NM 51 NV 24 NY 13 OH 29 OK 9 OR 30 PA 24 PR 25 SC 20 SD 83 TN 76 TX 236 UT 49 VA 22 VT 5 WA 65 WI 59 WV 26 WY 29
    • Looks like Dish has already taken back the 5x5 of n71 they leased to T-Mobile, and instead of narrowing NR here T-Mobile has gone for broke and made 600 NR-only. They can afford to do that here thanks to B12, and don't need to do that west of here because they weren't leasing 600 from Dish. Does mean that Dish is 10x10 for n71 here (which explains the 30ish Mbps upload peak I saw yesterday). Darned speculators hogging the remainder of the band So T-Mobile is running 140 + 15x15 MHz sub-6 NR here. AT&T is 40 + 15-45x15-45 (15x15 n5, occasional 15x15 DSS on n2 and/or n66 though I haven't seen both in the same area). VZW is 60 + 15x15, with the latter being n2 DSS. Wonder how soon VZW will try n48.
