I'd prefer the LG's firmware developers in South Korea to do their job, and not read an American enthusiast's website. The idea that anyone from LG reads this thread - let alone would actually post
- I find hilarious!

What on Earth gives you that fantastic (the dictionary definition) idea?
But I agree, if they were to say anything, it would be along the lines of "we're doing our best and you'll have to wait". Progress is not expedited by frequent requests for progress reports.
I've never seen LG announce ETAs on firmware updates so much as we might like some communication from them, we'll just have to accept that we won't get it. Any and all communication from the customer-facing people in LG is going to be difficult and largely a waste of time.
This is why we were lucky (and IMHO privileged) to get a message back via Vincent Teoh to give us the heads up that it would take a while at the start of the year. And I'm pleased that we did get that message. What we will get, I am sure, is a firmware update at some point based on that beta or a later beta.
EDIT: I've caught up now with the intervening posts. Great points by
. We don't know why the downgrade option was blocked, but it was, so it is very inadvisable to install this firmware; the only reason to do so would be as a fit of pique
. Really shocking to see people being taught how to install it without
this being mentioned
