    Now even the Galaxy Express, a budget phone, gets it before we do. This gets tiring.

    Add another outdated phone that will probably see Jelly Bean before us.

    AT&T sucks at updating its phones.  For some reason every other carrier can add their bloatware no problem, but AT&T can't.  We've seen this before with HTC, Samsung, and now LG.  They really know how to make a flagship phone suck.

    Let's face it AT&T knows that if you bought a new phone odds your locked into a 2 year contract therefore they focus on people that are ending their two year contract or people that are new customers by offering them the latest android phones.  Look how long it took the HTC one X to get jelly bean.

    This(among other reasons) is why I will be paying my ETF on four lines and getting a new S4 or One on T-Mobile in the next couple days.

    Ron: ok have they tested the jellybean software yet?

    Nazir : Are looking for jelly bean software update for LG optimus G device ?

    Nazir : *you

    Ron: yes

    Ron: i just want to know did u guys test it yet?

    Nazir : Let me check that for you.

    Ron: i know it's not out yet...but has it been tested is what i'm asking

    Nazir : Once a manufacturer releases an update to us, AT&T puts it through rigorous testing to ensure its compatibility with our network. Only once we are satisfied that the update will work properly on our systems without causing a negative customer experience will we then make it available for our AT&T branded devices. This can sometimes be a lengthy process that may include working with the manufacturer and developers to make needed changes. There have been some instances in the past where we have simply never released updates due to conflicts and unresolvable problems. At this time the update you are looking for is not yet available for your AT&T device. I am sorry, but we will need to wait to see if and when it is approved by our research and testing team.

    Ron: when u say "manufacturer"...who are u speaking of exactly?...LG right?

    Ron: so..LG did give u guys the software to run tests on to see if it's safe??? well explain what the exact conflicts and resolvable problems that u speak of?

    Ron: which was months ago for my optimus g E970

    Nazir : What kind issue you are having with your device software Mr. Ron ?

    Ron: the reason i asked is because I, myself and a group of others don't see what's the hold up and conflicts with updating it with jellybean if rooting works....

    Ron: no issues here Nazir....that's not what i asked u

    Ron: u are not answering any of my questions that's shown above

    Nazir : I can definitely understand your concern Mr. Ron. We do so many testing on software update so our customers do not have any issues with their device.

    Ron: so..LG did give u guys the software to run tests on to see if it's safe??? well explain what the exact conflicts and resolvable problems that u speak of?

    Nazir : What kind of testing are involved in it and what kind of resolving parameters att looking for is solely depend on our software testing team. We do have any information regarding that.

    Nazir : We do not have any information regarding that.

    Ron: so u telling me there is a possibilty that this great flag ship phone will not get the jellybean....but Sprint and every other phone carrier is able to push it...and on top of that all samsung flag ship phones are able to get it on AT&T???

    Nazir : I do apologize for the inconvenience. I can understand your concern. We do not have any information regarding when att is going to release the jelly bean software update for LG optimus. Once it will released you will get to know about it. It will be released soon. We do not have any information about date of release.

    Ron: soon?...how do u know this Nazir?...are u saying we will get the update for sure? yes or no?

    Nazir : I can not say that you will get the software update for sure. If jelly bean passes the software testing with att than it will be going to release. However I can not guarantee you for sure.

    Ron: then why did u say soon then?...this why we lose trust and support in AT&T...because u guys just say whatever to get around the conversation at hand...it's disrespectful to the loyal customers of AT&T...same goes for LG..

     

    this is why i refuse to talk to these ppl...smh

    Att, you must have just sold a bunch of these phones at $99 and $75 on Amazon. Please release the update for this popular device! I see that 2011 devices are being updated which could mean they are starting with older devices first (or best selling, or no rhyme or reason) and are way behind...

    Sorry everyone I hate to be the one to deliver bad news. The Optimus G has been placed on EOL by both AT&T and Sprint to make room the the Optimus G Pro. So we all will be stuck with the G without the jelly bean update. I recieved this info from a very reliable source at AT&T.

    How can they EOL a phone that is at most a year old. I say that is the grounds for suit for misrepresentation/ fraud.

    Congratulations AT&T, I have now signed all four of my lines up at T-Mobile due in no small part to the utter lack of communication with those of us that pay for your existence. Good luck everyone here, I hope it comes soon.

    Well Sprint released the update to Jellybean for their users of the Optimus G.  And considering that AT&T and LG heavily advertised this phone during the NCAA Tournament, it is unlikely that it is being abandoned with the EOL status.

     

    The Optimus G Pro will be a phablet with a 5.5" screen thus won't replace the Optimus G in the lineup.  There may be an Optimus G2 model coming up that would replace the G, but even then just like what Samsung did the S2 after the S3 came out, the model tends to live on.

     

    I do think AT&T will eventually release the update, it's just that they are lazy and the Optimus G isn't selling well enough for them to assign a tech to it.

    Thanks.
    This is what I found at androidcentral forum. Apparently it fixes battery life and is latest software version. But these guys got it in January. So att is really slow or any problems they have updating to JB could be software versions the bone heads overlooked. Just worried it might make rooting harder in the future. Well let the dice roll.

    I thought it would be very appropriate to push out Jelly Bean on Eastern Morning.  I was so exicited when I saw an update this morning.  4.0.4 wow that really sucks.  I am not waiting anymore.  It is time to root and hack.

    Well did update. It said 111 apps (which came with the phone) were optimized. Software version is E97010c. Maybe battery is charging faster which battery widget should tell me, and same for battery life.
    Hopefully this gets us closer to JB. Maybe ppl who had this version will get JB soon. Att is slower than expected.

    I really hate to be victim of AT&T the second time. 

     

    Previously I had the Motorola flagship Atrix 4G, which they never updated to ICS even after official announcements and promises. They simply cancelled it. Cat Sad

     

    Now I have LG flagship Optimus G and it seems it is heading towards the same fate. I think AT&T is too busy and got comfortable in licking the apple all the time and hence has no time to take care of the Green Robot.

    What makes me the most angry is that I purchsed the LG Optimus G a month ago, over other phones, because I was told by the AT&T staff that it would be getting Jelly Bean. It is entirely the reason I went with this phone over its competitors. Thanks for lying to me, AT&T.

    False alarm...thought it was the Jellybean when it was delivered over the air.  Intead it was an easter basket full of coal instead of jellybeans.  Hopefully it did something at least...maybe longer battery life and improved wifi.

     

    It amounted to a firmware update, and the operating system is still ICS 4.0.4 :-(

    I don't know what some versions people are posting, but the update I got Easter Sunday was different than the versions people listed:

     

    Software Version: E97011c

    Build: IMM76L

    Baseband: APQ8064/MDM9x15M

     

    To clarify as well, I already had the update back from December arleady as well.  This isn't the same update.
