LG Optimus One is a great mid-range smartphone which comes pre-loaded with Android 2.2 Froyo OS. The handset which I got came with software version v10b Oct 2-2010 but recently LG has issued an updated software version v10d-MAR-01-2011 for LG P500.
This latest software update v10D upgrades Android 2.2 to Android 2.2.2. You can update your Optimus One to the latest firmware v10d using LG PC Suite which comes loaded on its Free 2GB microSD card. We upgraded to Android 2.2.2 update and the installation went fine but took much time as the process is quite lengthy altogether.
