LG Vortex (VS660) unable to update to Android 2.2.2

Hello, I have the LG Vortex (VS660) on Verizon, and I am unable to update Android OS to version 2.2.2.
I am currently running Android 2.2, and I wish to update to either 2.2.1 or 2.2.2 (preferably the latter).
However, attempting to update by Settings > About Phone > Software Update > Status results in the following:
Source: Verizon Wireless
Status: Service Unavailable
Code: 503
Date: June 2, 2012
Time: 4:02 PM
Settings > About Phone > Software Update > Check New gives me this:
SERVICE UNAVAIABLE
Check for Software Update when service is available.
However, the service is never available. I have four bars and Wi-Fi turned on. The Wi-Fi should be turned off automatically when I try to update, however this does not happen. Turning of Wi-Fi manually first, then trying to update yields the same result. This leads me to believe that the phone is not actually checking to see if a software update is available. Additionally, checking the status usually displays the wrong time. The time is usually a couple hours behind, which also makes me think that the phone is not actively checking for a software update, although it is supposed to when I manually check, of all times. I'm really not sure what might have caused this issue, and in all the time I've had the device, not once has something popped up telling me that my firmware is not up-to-date, and that I can update it.
I have never done any sort of rooting and / or hacking in any way, despite how much I would like to so that I could remove all of the bloatware that is installed on it by default from both Verizon Wireless and LG Electronics. However, I don't think it would even be worth it, considered how under-powered the phone is and that the hardware is a bit dated.
Has anyone else had this issue, either on the same phone or another Android device? Does anyone have any ideas of what I should try?
I'm hoping the Code: 503 should be able to provide some sort of clue as to what is wrong, however I could not find any place to enter error codes on either this site or on LG's corresponding website.
I would prefer not to have to visit a Verizon Wireless store, because often I have found the employees there to not be very helpful. I am rather knowledgeable when it comes to computers and mobile devices in general, although I'm much more familiar with Apple's Mac and iPhone platforms than I am with Microsoft Windows or Android.
I have both a Mac and a computer running Windows 7 at my disposal, and I have attempted to plug in my device via USB to both, with no luck. On the PC, I installed all of the drivers I could find from LG, and the computer does recognize the device when it is connected. However, when I run the LG Mobile Support Tool, it says that the Vortex is already up-to-date. This is not the case, though. I know a couple people who also have the Vortex, and neither of them have ever had any issues updating their devices. Both were able to update first to Android 2.2.1, and then to 2.2.2 flawlessly.
Is there any way that I can download the official firmware (version 2.2.2) online from either LG or Verizon, and try to install that on my device? Perhaps installing Android 2.2 over the previously existing version that is running on my phone would help. Is this possible?
I know that the Android platform is open source, but I assume I wouldn't just be able to download Android 2.2.2 from Google and install it on the Vortex, considering that both LG and Verizon have contributed to creating a custom version of Android, which is what my phone, like all others, came pre-installed with. Is what I'm saying correct?
Thanks in advance.

  • Unable to update payment information

    Due to the recent Adobe security breach, I like many other people have been forced to replace our credit cards. I received my new card and am completely unable to update my payment information. All attempts to update the information using Firefox, Chrome, Safari and Android and iPhone browsers is unsuccessful. Considering that the recent security problems of compromised customer payment information, I would have expected more from Adobe. Why doesn't such an important function of the Creative Cloud website work at a time when many people are having to re-enter their payment information due to recent events?
    I have been waiting for the chat support to person for a while now and can't spend another hour waiting for assistance. This series of events is really beyond the pale in regards to Adobe's customer service and support. First we get our credit cards stolen, and then when we have to put in new payment information, the website doesn't even work properly. Adobe isn't some start up that's only been around for a few months, they're a multi-billion dollar company.
    Do I need to call someone instead? Is there any sort of notification or status as to whether or not the website is functioning as expected?

    I had the same issue, Sent Email offering £7.99 for 25 GB. Then sent me an Email at 2.52AM saying I needed to update my payment method although they had just refunded to it. Then 7 hours later, I had tried to before work at 7AM and thought, "as it won't let me do that on my iphone, I'll do it at lunch." Sadly at 9:56 am UK time, They reduced my storage.
    Having Wasted an hour on the phone tonight, they first tried to explain that £7.99 is More than £0.79 times 12. Doh!
    That was followed with lots of being on hold and then being told "We can't go back, We Can't make a refund. We agree it was short notice and that we didn't do it well, there are lots of issues about this and also that we never offered you that (till the saw the email)" So no better off and now having to pay more for same service. That's pretty poor service all around. I have to upgrade as All my files, Backups and Emails are inoperative Till I do so.
    That's pretty bad for a company of this size, Guess they need some more bad press at the moment.

  • OSX: Adobe Creative Cloud unable to update (stall at 50%)

    Hey experts,
    ever since signing up for Creative Cloud I have been unable to update any application as my regular user on OSX. After exchanging 23 emails with the Adobe support in 2013 I finally gave up and created a workaround in the hope that the Adobe developers would finally look into the issue and fix the bug. With the last update of Creative Cloud my workaround stopped working so I took time to do a complete reinstallation of Creative Cloud to see if the bug was finally fixed. It was not.
    The bug:
    -Installation of Creative Cloud and Photoshop, Lightroom etc. through the Creative Cloud app works.
    -Any try to update a CC applicaton (e. g. Photoshop CC 2014 results in the state "waiting" at 50%):
    -Trying to update through the menu of Adobe Photoshop CC 2014 "Aktualisierungen"
    resulted in the following error message:
    Translation: "Update failed. Unable to apply updates. Adobe Application manager is already running. Close all instances of Adobe Application Manager before applying updates. etc."
    What I tried to resolve the problem:
    What did not work:
    -Complete reinstallation of Creative Cloud:
         -Uninstall of all Adobe applications
         -Ran the Adobe CC Cleaner tool
         -Eliminated every single *[Aa]dobe*-folder on my disk including my profile.
         -Reboot
         -Re-installation using a fresh CC download.
    -The common 1st-level-support acts of desperation:
         -Rebooting
         -Checking the file system
         -Fixing permissions
    -The bug even survived 2 OSX system upgrades
    -Even tried to track down the bug myself which I gave up after having discovered the endless chain of Creative Cloud and AAM-Processes executing each other...
    What worked:
    -Installing updates as another OSX user. (Which is cumbersome and to be honest I am unwilling to create a new profile and redoing the settings of all installed (especially non-Adobe) applications because of an Adobe bug...)
    Any help will be greatly appreciated.

    Please tell me what can I do now to update my apps. All suggestions will be appreciated.
    Thank you.

  • Unable to update apps on iPad mini. I have even restored the iPad and now I can't download any of my previously purchased apps.

    Can someone help me. I am using an iPad mini with iOS 7.0.4 with wifi connection. Have had no problems until recently when I was unable to update apps and then noticed that some apps would open but no data would be available in apps like intelicast and Pinterest. I have restored the iPad and now I am unable to download any of my previously purchased apps.

    1. Make sure iPad is using the latest software
    2. Settings>General>Date and Time>Set Automatically>On
    3. Make sure Time Zone is correct
    4. Reset iPad. Hold the Sleep and Home button down until you see the Apple Logo.

    Has somebody set the database ready for archiving, maybe some maxl has been run and the db has not been returned from read only mode.
    Try running the following Maxl (change app.db to match your app/db)
    alter database app.db end archive;

    The Readonly error got resolved.
    But still the following error is displayed when I am loading data thru load rule.
    To Brief you up, I had done a database corrupt check using validate command because of the following error. The information map asks you to do the same since the other parameters are in the affirmative ie sufficient disk space, not using addsin, File is present.

    Note: I do not have any data in the Cube. I had cleared all data.
    Can you please help ?

  • Unable to update numbering schemes in define purchasing options

    Hi,
    We are unable to update the numbering scheme from manual to automatic in define purchasing options (Numbering Tab). Documentation says that you can update it, but it does not give any reason under what circumstances we would not be allowed to update the numbering schemes.

    Hi Sandeep,
    I am doing multi organisation implementation and only one ledger they do not require Inventory and Purchasing modules. Because of that i will not create any inventory organisation for that selected ledger.
    This ledger will have seperate responsibility for AP.
    Howver, my problem is when i am trying to complete the financial options, inventory organisation is mandatory for that responsability. Without inventory organisation i am unable to save the financial options.
    Please assist me how to overcome this issue.

    You should be syncing all your contacts and calendars with your computer, either via iCloud or iTunes, so it is easy to re-sync them back to the phone after you restore.
